Warren opponent: ‘Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian’ | TheHill

This war on words/ethnicities on Elizabeth Warren’s possible Native American ancestry by someone who wasn’t even born in this country is insulting to indigenous people world-wide. 

Shiva Ayyadurai is an  American citizen born in the country of Indian. He is not a Native American and as a first generation American misses much of the nuances and history of what exactly is a native American. Suffice to say that there are people who lived with the Native American’s for decades only to be turned out of the tribes when the United States government proposed to give reparations to the “recognized” tribes. History books will tell you that some tribes we’re not recognized.
