The saga of U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's phony baloney Native American heritage claim took an almost surreal turn.
The Warren camp now says (and this is not a script from "SNL") that she is 1/32 Cherokee because her cousin was the editor of the book "Pow Wow Chow." (http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/05/not-parody/) ...

I didn't know Amazon commenters had it in them:


I made this purchase hoping I would be invited to Indian lunches but I haven't got past the hot water part.

Overall this selection is lacking and has just a few good recipes inside. One for Humble Pie and another for Roasted Crow.

As a 0/32 native american, I decided to practice the recipes in this book in hopes that I would be invited to a luncheon, brunch or something with fellow 0/32 native americans.

Elizabeth Warren was touting her claim of Cherokee heritage as early as 1984, according to a cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” edited by her cousin that includes Warren’s recipes for a savory crab omelet and spicy barbecued beans.
The cookbook, edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey, is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families,” according to the introduction in a copy obtained by the Herald.
Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. http://bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/view.bg?articleid=1061132202

This is a fabulous collection of recipes suitable for faculty luncheons, or just anyone who is interested in getting in touch with their high-cheeked ancestors.

I felt, while making the crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing, that I was really in touch with my 0/32 Cherokee roots, and knew that my faux-native american ancestors were once putting this on canapes before inviting some new friends from the new world over for brunch!

Some of the recipes in this book are by the nation's most famous Cherokee, Elizabeth Warren, who is 0/32 native on her mother's side. As a fellow 0/32 Cherokee, I have enjoyed getting in touch with my ancestry through some of the delightful recipes Dr. Warren has published, such as a recipe for herbed tomatoes. I absolutely recommend this for anyone with a similar ancestry who wants to know more about the traditions passed down from their forebears.

I'm confused; each recipe calls for 0/32 measurements of ingredients -- that doesn't add up to anything. I have serious reservations about these recipes.

If you don't have the enviable 'high' cheekbones of the Cherokee people,
you should probably pass on this book as most of the recipes require at
least 1/32 high cheekbones for chewing.

Claiming baloney is of Native American heritage is akin to the phony baloney claims that Elizabeth Warren is of Native American heritage.

Looks like the recipes may not even have been hers...


The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr (http://www.howiecarr.us/) released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/05/13/Warren-Campaign-Pow-Wow-Chow) cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey. Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members of the Cherokee tribe, are described in a New York Times News Service story as originating at Le Pavilion, a fabulously expensive French restaurant in Manhattan. The dishes were said to be particular favorites of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter. ...

Next thing you know, she'll be claiming that Cole Porter was 1/32 Arapaho. On the other hand, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor may have attended an Adam Ant concert, and worn war paint, so there is that.

Oh, and was anyone else surprised at the number of traditional Native American recipes that called for Cheez Whiz and Doritos?

Why is the New England Historic Genealogical Society Lying Abut Warren's Amer. Indian Claims?

-By Warner Todd Huston

As each day rolls on in this investigation of the claims made by Massachusetts Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren that she has Native American heritage in her background we are finding fewer and fewer reasons to believe her. Sadly, she is dragging down once well-respected groups with her unprovable claims and Boston-based New England Historic Genealogical Society is one of them.

As this story came to the fore recently one of the main sources that buttressed Warren's now faltering claims that she is part Native American came from the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS). Famously, or perhaps now infamously, NEHGS genealogist Christopher Child substantiated Warren's claim that her great-great-great grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, had Cherokee blood.

This evidence, Mr. Child claimed, is substantiated by a "marriage application" filed with the state of Oklahoma upon which, Child insists, is a section where this supposed native heritage is noted. This document, however, does not seem to actually exist.

Worse, according to the County Clerk of Logan County, Oklahoma, there was no such thing as a "marriage application" in the 1890s, the era in which O.C. Sarah Smith was married. The clerk said that people didn't get "applications" back then, they just got a marriage certificate and that was all -- there was no "application" process. So, not only does this document not exist, it couldn't exist.

Naturally, the NEHGS has suddenly found that it no longer wants to be part of this debate! The NEHGS has shut down any communication about the claims made by its genealogist. William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog tried to contact the NEHGS and found that the organization doesn't have the integrity to stand up for its claims. Sadly, Jacobson found that the NEHGS is refusing to reply to any calls to prove that what they’ve said about Warren is true.

It is sad to see the New England Historic Genealogical Society allowing its reputation to be destroyed by its desires to buck up a Democrat running for office. Of course, Child and the NEHGS get a lot of cash from the state and one has to assume that they are just looking to find favor with a Democrat that they might assume will help them get more public money.

But what this all comes down to is Warren relying simply on family lore to claim that she has American Indian heritage. Now, this sort of foolish reliance on mere family myth is fine when a family is sitting around the dinner table or at family functions and shooting from the lip about their past. But basing legal and moral claims on such hearsay is not legitimate.

Warren has done just that, too. She's used her unsubstantiated family mythos for financial gain. Worse, the university at which she teaches has done the same thing. Harvard University has used Warren's faux Indian heritage to sell its programs and likely done so in efforts to get funding, as well.

Family lore is one thing, but when that lore is used for financial gain and it turns out to be based on nothing but lies, this is something else entirely.

Warren is being brazen about it all, too. Far from shying from the discussion she is doubling down on her fake claims of a Native American heritage saying she is “proud” of that heritage… that doesn’t actually exist.

So, what should we call this woman? Is her Indian name Lies Like The Wind? How about Faux-cahontis? Whatever names we call her, "American Indian" isn't among them.
