So, what exactly is the legal percentage for claiming Native American Heritage? e.g., if if is not 1/32 then is it 1/16, or 1/8, etc.

Terry, the point is that Warren is 0/32 Cherokee Indian.

From the website "The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians was organized under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 and the Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act of 1936. Membership requires a blood quantum of 1/4 or higher and ...". She doesn't even meet the requirements of the Eastern Band: "The Eastern Band requires that a person have a blood quantum of 1/16th or higher and..." (per macroman)

I have several friends from differing tribes I can ask for sure. I believe the Cherokees cut a better deal though because for their close interaction with the early U.S.

As I understand it, the Cherokee can be on the roles for 1/32, Choctaw, Arapaho, Apache, Kiowa, etc. is 1/8.

With the Navajo, I seem to recall that one of your grandmothers (so, 1/4 of your ancestry) has to be full-blooded Navajo. And it has to be a grandmother, because you're basically not Navajo if you aren't a member of one of their clans—and membership in a clan is passed through the mother. They may have relaxed it to be either sex of grandparents, but the most traditional Navajos—and there are actually a lot of those—won't acknowledge them as anything other than "cousins" (maternal kin are "brothers").

The Arapaho and Kiowa also require 1/4 blood quantum, not 1/8, FYI. Some Choctaw and the White Mountain Apache (who are one of the most traditional Apache bands) require 1/2.
Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, "Lies on Race Box," is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard.

Harvard took full advantage of Warren's lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient "diversity" in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, "I am very proud of my Native American heritage."

Except, oops, she has no...
