Elizabeth Warren is still trying to solve her Native American problem, so she attended a forum for Native Americans this week.
It didn’t go very well. Even her introduction was a dud.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Moderator Shocked by Lack of Native American Enthusiasm for Warren
The moderator at a Native American forum was shocked on Monday after Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) received very little enthusiasm about her potential election.
Warren participated in the presidential forum on Native American issues in Sioux, City, IA, where she apologized for the “harm” she caused for her past claims of Native American ancestry.
“It’s a wonderful day and Native Americans across this country should celebrate. Today we’re sharing the stage with a future president perhaps,” the moderator said.
There was some applause and one person who appeared to cheer. Warren bowed and shook hands with the moderator before he followed up to address the crowd.
“I would expect more excitement from our native citizens,” the moderator said, prompting the crowd to cheer louder.

Of course, everything she is doing with Native Americans all of a sudden is intended to benefit her, not them.
Professor William Jacobson writes at Legal Insurrection:
The purpose of Elizabeth Warren’s Native American Plan is to help Warren’s presidential campaign
Throughout her adult professional life, Elizabeth Warren has manipulated Native Americans.
When Warren was in her mid-30s, and a law professor, she for the first time asserted that she was Native American. She didn’t do it by joining Native American groups, by bringing lawsuits to help Native Americans, or by helping Native American students. Never in her life did she do any of those things.
Instead, beginning in the mid-1980s, Warren asserted her Native American claim in the information provided to a law professor directory widely used for hiring purposes. That claim to be Native American landed Warren on a short list of “Minority Law Teachers.” Warren’s supposed Native American status was not disclosed in the directory, only that she was a minority…
When Warren’s claim to be Native American was discovered in April 2012, during the Senate campaign, Warren defended her claims with dubious family lore stories. That defense would continue throughout the 2012 Senate campaign, and for six more years whenever Warren was confronted on the issue. Yet as a Senator, Warren did little to nothing to help Native Americans.
It’s always all about her.
That’s who she is.
