One voice has been noticeably absent from discussions of whether Warren is Cherokee enough: that of actual Cherokee people and their descendants. So I got in touch with Steven "Stone Bear" Phillips, principal chief of the United Cherokee Nation, an organization of Cherokee descendants, people much like Warren herself claims to be. "Only Indians, dogs, cats and horses are registered and have a blood quantum requirement," he says. "Research Native people and you will find that the registration requirements and blood quantum issue is divisive amongst the people and was installed by the very government that tried for hundreds of years to genocide the Cherokee and other Native peoples."

Phillips compares Warren to Obama, who is also famously mixed race. "Our current President is mixed blood, including some Cherokee blood, but self-identifies as an African-American. I don’t believe he has to have a [letter from the government] to prove it," he says. "In turn, neither should I, nor you, nor Ms. Warren, be required to prove to any other person or government, who we are and what blood quantum percentage we have."

Phillips closed his email to me this way: "My prayers to the Creator today are for my Cherokee sister Ms. Warren."

You are a liar and evidently don't read much. The Cherokee nation has come out nationally against Mrs. Warren for using the Cherokee to further her employment, employment that was actually meant for a minority. A Cherokee alumnist who is currently a attorney, is asking all current students and former alumni of the Harvard Law School, make known to Harvard University what they think about this and to demand a apology from Mrs. Warren.

Yesterday, Elizabeth Warren appeared on "Hardball with Chris Matthews” -- and, strangely enough, with a little help from the host himself -- argued that she was the people’s candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts and that her opponent, “Wall Street Republican” Scott Brown, did not have their best interests at heart. Now, of course, the incumbent Senator is firing back, questioning her integrity and raising serious doubts about whether or not she is capable of serving the Bay State electorate faithfully in the United States Senate.
