    How's that for irony! The woman who claimed Native American ancestry, now it seems her great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford, participated in the removal of the Cherokees from Georgia. I think she's on about the 4th spiral of a 5 spiral crash for that Senate seat. I wonder how she can shoot herself in the other foot?

    I'm still wondering how soon she'll reload and shoot herself in the other foot? Tea Partiers in Mass should dress up like her GGG Grandfather and some like Cherokees and re-enact a trail of tears scene at one of her rally's.

    Perhaps Her GGG Grandfather raped a Cherokee girl and that is how she got her lineage?

    Elizabeth Warren is a joke.

    Are your ancestors recent immigrants? I have Indian blood and ancestry on both sides of the Trail or Tears.. Most Southerners do.

    Which apparently has nothing to do with Socialist Democrat Elizabeth Warren.... unless you are considering those that rounded them up and marched them to death?

    Are you holding her responsible for her ancestors?

    There were several removals.. west and then out of MS even further west.

    You might take a look into Shubuta Trading Post.. Its a snap shot....

    If you want to blame someone, blame Andrew Jackson who was also the only pres in US history to defy the US Supreme Court.

    It seems that great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford engaged in some inter-personal relations to compensate himself for his work in the removal of the Cherokees from Georgia. He must have taken his blushing bride home with him if he's Warren's declared ancestor.

    Yawn all you want her lead has turned into a loss. No great loss the Democrats will lose control of the Senate in November anyway.

    So they're responsible for slavery and the Native American massacres. If reparations are to be paid, you should be paying them, not me. My ancestors came he long after the civil war and Native American stuff.

    Slavery in the Americas began in Brazil .. labor for the Sugar Plantations.

    But, we're not talking about Brazil. Were your ancestors southern plantation owners?

    Stick to the topic ... that is, you're ignorant to Native American culture ... here long before white-man ...

    Here in the south ... (ancient) indian trails are highly regarded and are preserved for antiquity ... I live smack-dab on the Natchez Trace ... where it's believed ancient native-americans dated 7,000 to 10,000 years ago traveled the trail as migratory route ... and where many a white-man traveled, lived and perished ... including Meriwether Lewis (of Lewis and Clark Expedition fame) ...

    Unscrupulous people like Elizabeth Warren who often lie for political advantage are usually hoisted on their own petard!

    Natchez Trace is a pretty part of the country..

    Are you familiar with the history of the Shubuta Trading Post?
