Elizabeth Warren and Native Americans

When you're born and raised in Oklahoma, and your family has been there for a few generations, chances are you have some Native American blood.

Most Americans like to think the Indians were all killed and are gone forever, except in Old West films. 

People like dt can only name 2-3 Indians in American history and have no idea how complex the history is regarding native people and how some intermarried with settlers and many survived as still full-blooded Navajos, Lakota, Sioux, and other groups.  

Thank you to Elizabeth Warren for beginning a campaign to educate the public on her own mixed heritage and on US history.
