Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday sought to clear up questions about her claims of Native American ancestry during an unexpected appearance at the National Congress of American Indians Tribal Nations Policy Summit in Washington.

Ms. Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, stood by her claim that she is part Cherokee and Delaware Indian, saying her parents chose to elope because her mother was part Native American, and her father’s parents did not approve of the marriage.

“I get why some people think there’s hay to be made here,” she said, according to a transcript provided to the Boston Globe. “You won’t find my family members on any rolls, and I’m not enrolled in a tribe.”

Ms. Warren said of her parents, “the love they shared, the struggles they endured, the family they built, and the story they lived will always be a part of me.”

“And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away,” Mrs. Warren said.
