Unrecognized ‘Mixed-Blood’ Tribe in Oregon Offers Warren Membership (The Washington Free Beacon)

An unrecognized "mixed-blood" tribe in Oregon has invited Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to join its ranks so she can proudly call herself the member of a tribe.

Founded after they were rejected in 2000 by existing Native American tribes for not meeting bloodline requirements, the "Una Nation" doesn't have a high bar for membership. Twenty-nine-year-old Richard B. Lake III, who is the "King" of the tribe, told KVAL earlier this month a member only needs one ancestor who was Native American or an indigenous person.

Warren would meet that requirement. After years of criticism from Republicans and "Pocahontas" taunts from Donald Trump over unsubstantiated claims of past Native American ancestry, she released a widely panned DNA test in October showing she was between 1/64th and 1/1,1024th Native Americana.
