She continues to have no easy response to President Donald Trump's nickname for her - Pocahontas - an insult that, despite her efforts to move past her previous claims of tribal ancestry, reminds Democrats already nervous about her general-election viability of her biggest political unforced error.
Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign is doing damage control after the Massachusetts Senator played up her Native American heritage. 'I am sorry for the harm I have caused'. "I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we've had together", Warren said.
U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren on Monday apologized again for her claims in the 1980s that she is Native American, speaking to a crowd of tribal leaders in Iowa.
Warren on Tuesday took steps to expand her support with black voters, who largely favored Vice President Joe Biden in a poll released last week by the Pew Research Center, by unveiling a detailed criminal justice proposal.
On Monday, Senator Elizabeth Warren issued an apology to Native American communities. And anyway, being a Native American goes beyond one's DNA. If Warren is elected, he said he hopes she could use her power to influence state policymakers.

"Guess she *still* hasn't gotten her story straight".
When asked about her heritage in 2012, Warren defended her heritage claims by saying that she "lived in a family that has talked about Native Americans, talked about tribes since I had been a little girl", and that her aunt often remarked that "her father, my Papaw - had high cheek bones like all of the Indians do".
The test showed she had as little as 1/1024th Native American heritage, which would be less than most people descended from Europeans.
Warren spoke at the Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa, hosted by several tribes from across the country. "Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center". Warren's release last week of a new suite of policy plans and draft legislation, crafted with Haaland, seemed to speak on its own to numerous questions in Sioux City.
