Elizabeth Warren Shuts Down Fellow Native American On Senate Floor

Font Size:

As we all know, Elizabeth Warren is a Native American when it suits her. She’s glad to use her purported heritage when it’s to her advantage. But as you’re about to see, she’ll cast it aside in an instant when it embarrasses her.

Indian Country Today Media Network:

As Senator Elizabeth Warren announced that the Keystone XL pipeline vote had failed to pass, the wailing strains of the Lakota unci maka wiwayang wacipi song floated down from the gallery.

It was Greg Grey Cloud, enrolled member of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe and founder of Wica Agli, a group created to bring back traditional values of masculinity and eradicate violence against women and children.

“Grandfather look at me, I am standing here struggling, I am defending Grandmother Earth and I am chasing peace,” Grey Cloud sang, according to a translation he provided to Lakota Life.

A noble sentiment. And how did Warren react? Did she welcome and embrace her Native American brother? Did she thank him for his beautiful song?

No, she did not. Make sure you turn on the audio:

Is that any way to talk to one of her own people? Sounds like Senator Warren has forgotten her roots.

As Alex Griswold puts it: “Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was presiding over the Senate floor at the time, chose not to translate.”
