Which Liz Warren Family Member Denied Aunt Bea’s Indian Heritage?


One of these things is not like the other…

Why…Liz Warren!  Who else?

That’s right: after telling the “My Aunt Bea…high cheekbones” story again and again, when Aunt Bea passes away and Liz Warren had to identify her race…

So Aunt Bea was Indian, sharing the same ancestry as Warren, according to Warren, and that ancestry was such an important part of who Aunt Bea was that she told the story about the high cheekbones at least a thousand times.

Yet when Aunt Bea died, she was not identified as American Indian by the person who informed the State of Oklahoma about the death. That “informant” was none other than Warren, and she identified Aunt Bea as “White,” even though the Certificate of Death listed American Indian as the first of several alternatives.

Natural Truth of the Day

"[Liz] Warren remains far from transparent on the issue [of her Native American heritage]. A copy of Warren’s questionnaire is currently sitting in the Association of American Law Schools archives, but Warren, the only person with the authority to release a copy, refuses to do so." -- Washington Free Beacon
