Elizabeth Warren and the Indians: Secret emails revealed

Jamie Weinstein and Will Rahn

TheDC Satire: As her efforts to prove that she has Cherokee ancestry became increasingly desperate, Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren reached out to a Native American leader earlier this month and asked for help. The Daily Caller has exclusively obtained the emails Warren sent to, and received from, the Native American leader, and they are reprinted here for the first time, in their entirety, and without comment.

Great Father,

As I’m sure you know by now, my opponent – a white man – disputes my connection to the tribe and our native soil. As our people say, “something only lives as long as the last person who remembers it,” which is why I need your help.

We struggle now to overcome the white man’s lies, but their untruths spread like great wildfires across the plains.

Scott Brown’s family history is written in blood, while ours lives in the oral tradition of our people. Now I need official identification to prove myself. Can you help me prove that we are kin?

Howdy Hao Sister Liz,

It seems like you’re in quite the predicament! Fortunately, I think we at Cherokee Ted’s Resort and Casino can be of service.

We offer several special packages, but the one I think the one you might be interested in is the Authentic Cherokee Warrior Weekend. For $325.99 for the weekend, you and a companion will get a room, full access to the resort and casino, a special headdress, face paint and — perhaps most importantly for you — an authentic “I’m a Ted’s Cherokee Warrior” certificate and t-shirt. For an extra $25, we can upgrade you to the “chief” package, which includes priority access to the buffet reserved for the tribe’s most revered sages.

Remember, everything at Cherokee Ted’s Resort and Casino is tepee-riffic. Hope to see you here soon!

Best,

Chief Ted “Tomahawk Teddy” O’Connell

Great Father,

Thank you for you assistance — this should really help me scalp Scott Brown in November. I feel certain that my ancestors would be proud. Tell me: Is a vision quest, preferably with a medicine man, included in this package?

Sister Liz!

I’m glad the spirits have brought us together again. But to be honest, I’m not precisely sure what the fiddlesticks you’re talking about. But let me take a shot at hitting the target with my bow and arrow.

We do have a registered nurse on premise 24/7, but as much as it pains me, she unfortunately conforms to the white man’s ways. So while she isn’t a traditional “medicine man,” she can get you aspirin if you have a headache.

On another note, I do want to alert you to an awful rumor being spread by Chief Sal Napolitano of Seminole Sal’s Casino Pow Wow. He’s been telling potential customers that I’m not an authentic Indian. But just like you shouldn’t ever accept blankets from British colonists, you shouldn’t accept anything Seminole Sal spouts as fact. Believe you me: I paint with all the colors of the wind.

Hope to see you around these parts soon.

Best,

Chief Ted “Tomahawk Teddy” O’Connell
