"I never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead", she said.
"Look, I do know. Never got any benefit from it anywhere", Warren said.
Warren has many liberal admirers who wish to see her pursue the Democratic presidential nomination for the 2020 election. My mother and dad were born and raised in Oklahoma.
"She was a lovely girl who played the piano".
Last month, Warren addressed the National Congress of American Indians, trying to cast her family's story in the larger context of challenges facing native peoples.
"Fox News Sunday" host John Roberts brought up an editorial last week from the MA newspaper The Berkshire Eagle, which wrote Warren needed to resolve the debate over her heritage.
On March 6, the Berkshire Eagle, a daily newspaper published in Pittsfield, Mass., published an editorial calling upon Warren to take one of the many commercially available DNA tests to settle the controversy. "I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers". "It's a part of me and nobody's going to take that part of me away". Do you think he's being disrespectful to Native Americans when he does that? I went to speak to native American tribal leaders and I made a promise to them, that every time President Trump wants to try to throw out some kind of racial slur, he wants to try to attack me, I'm going to use it as a chance to lift up their stories and I'm going to do that right now.
"The way I see it, at the end of the day, what the people of MA said is they cared a whole lot more about their families than they did about my background", she said. We need to put some focus on this and we need to make some changes on this.
