BREAKING: Elizabeth Warren Listed Race As ‘American Indian’ In 1986 Document

In a document obtained by the Washington Post via a Freedom of Information Act request, Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) was shown to have listed her race as “American Indian” on a registration card for the Texas Bar Association.

Warren filled out the yellow card for the bar association by hand on April 18, 1986. At the time, Warren on the faculty of the University of Texas in Austin. Post reporter Amy Gardner tweeted a picture of the card bearing Warren’s signature.

The document, which was not previously reported, undercuts Warren’s claims that she did not claim American Indian heritage for herself to further her career. Warren apparently has not disputed the card’s authenticity.

Last year, Warren, a sitting senator from Massachusetts and a Democratic presidential candidate was widely mocked after revealing that a DNA test had showed her to be 1/1024th Native American. This is equivalent to one native ancestor six to 10 generations ago.

“I can’t go back,” Warren told the Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
