Warren’s Texas Bar Card Shows She Handwrote ‘American Indian’ as Her Race

Oops: We Found Warren’s Bar Card, and She Definitely Lied A 1986 Texas Bar Association document signed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren shows that she wrote in “American Indian” as her race. The document shows Warren wrote “American Indian” in the area where she could specify her race. Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry began roughly at the time she filled out the card and continued through the present day. Last year, she took a DNA test in an attempt to buttress her claims of Cherokee descent, though it didn’t help her case much. Last week, she privately apologized for the test, which she publicized, and for her claims of Native American heritage. Warren also said she apologized for identifying as Native American when at the University of Pennsylvania and at Harvard University.
