Elizabeth Warren Apologizes for Heritage Claims at Native American Event: ‘I Am Sorry for the Harm I Have Caused’

"It's not equal justice when a kid with an ounce of pot can get thrown in jail, while a bank executive who launders money for a drug cartel can get a bonus", she wrote in a post on the site Medium.

"Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes", Warren said at a forum on Native American issues in this pivotal early voting state. "I am sorry for the harm I have caused".

The new legislation would guarantee direct, long-term funding for criminal justice and law enforcement in Indian Country, as well as support for infrastructure, housing, education, health care and economic development initiatives, as well as, perhaps most important of all, self-governance.

At the start of a speech and Q&A session at the Frank LaMere Native American Issues Forum, Warren said she was sorry for claiming Native American ancestry.

"What she did to Native Americans was, some people say, a lot worse than what Trump's done to minorities".

At Monday's forum, Warren was asked about the missing and murdered indigenous women on tribal lands.

The DNA test has been roundly criticized by tribal leaders, who called Warren's use of the test past year to claim Cherokee heritage as "inappropriate and wrong".

"If she can do even a fraction of what she promised, that would be beneficial", he said. "We need to change the rules to make sure it is there in action, as well". Warren noted that her plan addresses this ongoing issue, pushing for the federal government to "get serious" about collecting and reporting data about these women.

"The 1994 crime bill's mandatory minimums and 'truth-in-sentencing" provisions that require offenders to serve the vast majority of their sentences have not proven effective, ' Warren said.

Warren's DNA analysis - part of a broader pushback against Trump's disparaging nickname - showed evidence of a tribal ancestor as far as 10 generations back, but the Cherokee Nation joined some other Native Americans in rebuking the senator for attributing tribal membership to genetics.

Ahead of Warren's appearance, Semans took the stage and urged the few hundred people in attendance to treat all the candidates who appeared with "respect".

Warren's claimed ethnic identity has always been a source of controversy for the MA senator, since her first run for high public office in 2012, and has been a favorite line of attack from President Donald Trump.

"I don't want a government that works for giant multinational corporations", Warren told the crowd.
