APPARENTLY SHE RELIED ON A CLAIM OF "LOOKING LIKE AND INDIAN" TO IDENTIFY HERSELF AS NATIVE AMERICAN..BUT

Shelly Lowe, executive director of Harvard University's Native American Program (HUNAP), told Breitbart News today that U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren had not, to her knowledge, participated in the program's events while Warren was a professor at Harvard.

Last week, Warren explained that she had listed herself as Native American "in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am." However, she had not been involved in HUNAP, the most obvious avenue for meeting fellow Native American faculty and students.

Warren, who is the Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Scott Brown, claims that she has a great-great-great-grandmother who was Cherokee. That claim has yet to be substantiated by evidence beyond family lore, and Warren herself has no formal tribal membership.

She had listed herself as Native American in the 1980s, but stopped doing so in the mid-1990s, claiming that she never encountered others with similar backgrounds: "Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it and so I stopped checking it off."

HUNAP is a visible presence at Harvard, a university whose 17th-century charterdedicates the school "to the education of the English and Indian youth of this country."

Active across Harvard's many departments and faculties, HUNAP helps Harvard fulfill its founding mission and provides opportunities for Native American students and faculty from across North America to build networks.

HUNAP's calendar boasts several events a week, on almost a daily basis. One of the most popular events, which attracts Native American students and faculty from across campus and beyond, is the annual Powwow (pictured above), a celebration of various different cultures represented within the Native American community at Harvard.

Lowe says that Warren "may or may not have been in the audience" at the program's many events at Harvard Law School, but that she was not otherwise involved.

    I have Native American blood. My great-grandmother on my mother's side. However , I will never know how much. In her day , it was not looked upon as a good thing to have Native American bloodlines and , therefore , the family suppressed this information. I will never know. It's just the way life is.

    We don't even know what tribe she was supposed to be from. We only know that she was from Missouri. The whole thing was very hush , hush. I think it's great your wife and daughter take pride in their heritage. But even my Aunt , who was very into the family geneology , never came up with much on her heritage.

    BOSTON (AP) — Records show that the leading Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts identified her race as "white" on an employment record at the University of Texas and declined to apply for admission to Rutgers Law School under a program for minority students.
    The records on Elizabeth Warren were obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday. Warren's heritage has been under scrutiny after it surfaced that she had listed herself as having Native American heritage in law school directories.

    Warren's campaign said the records reinforce her earlier statements that she never relied on a claim of minority status to get teaching jobs. She has criticized the campaign of Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown for suggesting that might be the case.

    A third document obtained by the AP Thursday indicated that the University of Pennsylvania, where Warren also worked, identified her as a minority professor.
    Brown has called on Warren to release all law school applications and personnel files from the universities where she taught.

    BOSTON (AP) — Records show that the leading Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts identified her race as "white" on an employment record at the University of Texas and declined to apply for admission to Rutgers Law School under a program for minority students.
    The records on Elizabeth Warren were obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday. Warren's heritage has been under scrutiny after it surfaced that she had listed herself as having Native American heritage in law school directories.

    Warren's campaign said the records reinforce her earlier statements that she never relied on a claim of minority status to get teaching jobs. She has criticized the campaign of Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown for suggesting that might be the case.

    A third document obtained by the AP Thursday indicated that the University of Pennsylvania, where Warren also worked, identified her as a minority professor.
    Brown has called on Warren to release all law school applications and personnel files from the universities where she taught.

    Warren worked at the University of Texas from 1983 to 1987, when she took a job at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

    A report by a committee established to review the status of minority faculty at the University of Pennsylvania identifies Warren as a minority, however, without elaborating.

    The new documents paint a fuller picture of Warren's law school record.
    On the Rutgers application, Warren wrote "No" in response to the question: "Are you interested in applying for admission under the Program for Minority Group Students?"
    Warren graduated from Rutgers in 1976.

    On a personnel file from the University of Texas, Warren checked the box "White" when asked to select "the racial category or categories with which you most closely identify."
    The categories included a box for "American Indian or Alaska Native," which Warren did not check.

    Another document that surfaced Thursday is a 2005 report by a committee established to review the status of minority faculty at the University of Pennsylvania.
    The report by the university's Minority Equity Committee includes a list of faculty members who worked at the school. Warren worked there as a law professor until 1995, when she left to take a job at Harvard Law School.
    The report listed the names of minorities in bold and italics, and Warren's was included among those names. It indicated that Warren had won a teacher award at the school, and that only eight of the 112 awards give out during a 13-year span had gone to minority teachers.

    Warren's campaign said the records from Rutgers and Texas bolster her argument that she was able to land a job at Harvard Law School in 1995 based on hard work and achievement, not claims of Native American heritage.
    "At every law school where Elizabeth was recruited to teach, it has been made absolutely clear she was hired based on merit; on her accomplishments and ability," Warren spokeswoman Alethea Harney said in a statement Thursday.
    "Documents from the college and law school from which she graduated show that Elizabeth did not seek special treatment by acknowledging her Native American heritage," Harney added.

    Brown has said serious questions have been raised about Warren's claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor, and that Warren should settle those questions by authorizing the release of her law school applications and all personnel files from the various universities where she has taught.

    Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried has said that any suggestion that Warren enjoyed an affirmative action advantage in her hiring as a full professor is "false" and that Warren was recruited because of her expertise in bankruptcy and commercial law.
    A Massachusetts genealogist said he uncovered evidence that Warren's great-great-great grandmother had listed herself as Cherokee in an 1894 document. That would make Warren a 1/32nd American Indian.

    In 1994, one year before she joined the faculty at Harvard, Warren won the prestigious Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching from the University of Pennsylvania, where she was teaching at the time. Eleven years later, the Minority Equity Committee of the University of Pennsylvania published a report that listed every winner of the award since 1991 and highlighted the names of minority recipients — including Elizabeth Warren’s.

    A spokesperson for Warren’s campaign did not immediately return The Daily Caller’s request for comment on whether Warren knew the University of Pennsylvania considered her to be a minority when she taught there.

    The news first broke in late April that the blond-haired, blue-eyed Warren had been listed as a Native American in professional law school directories in the 1980s and ’90s, and was once described by Harvard as a Native American.

    My Grandparents were both from Oklahoma, and I lived in Tulsa for a year. Doesn't make me Indian. My mother kept saying we had Indian blood, but when I did our genealogy I found nada. The closest we got to Indian was my Ggrandfather who fought in the Indian wars, and was part of the land rush.
