NOTE UPDATE: Elizabeth Warren made a surprise appearance at the National Congress of American Indians, on Wednesday. Warren’s full remarks can be read here.

The National Congress of American Indians’ Tribal Nations Policy Summit is taking place in Washington, D.C. this week. There is one person who will be noticeably absent from the guest list: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The Daily Caller reported on Tuesday that Warren is not among those listed on Tribal Nations Policy Summit guest list.

Warren has touted her Cherokee heritage in the past, despite not being able to adequately prove that she is, indeed, a descendant of Cherokee members.

President Trump has used this to attack Warren in the past, referring to her often as ‘Pocahontas.’

Actual Native Americans, and those who can prove they are descendants of Native Americans, have openly mocked Warren for her claims that she is a descendant of Native Americans.

“These are my family stories. This is what my brothers and I were told by my mom and my dad, my mammaw, and my pappaw. This is our lives. And I’m very proud of it,” Warren said in 2012, after questions about the legitimacy of her heritage were raised.

Warren has continued to defend her alleged heritage, despite Cherokee genealogists having traced Warren’s family history and being unable to find any ancestors that identified as anything other than white.

It seems odd that a United States senator, who claims to have Cherokee heritage, would not be invited to the National Congress of American Indians’ Tribal Nations Policy Summit.
