Fine Print: Warren DNA Test Did NOT Compare Against Real Native American DNA

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the results of a DNA test Monday to prove that she does indeed have Native American ancestry, which has not worked out as planned.

“To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamente used samples from Mexico, Peru and Colombia to stand in for Native American,” the Boston Globe report said.

In other words, Warren’s DNA could be Mexican, Peruvian, Colombian or Native American, but the “scientist” behind the test simply assumed that if Warren possessed Mexican, Peruvian or Colombian DNA that she was indeed Native American. Needless to say, none of those three countries are America.

The DNA test also proved that in any circumstance, Warren does not have enough Native American DNA to be considered American Indian by any tribe.
