Elizabeth Warren mocked for ‘Indigenous People’s Day’ tweet: ‘You might just want to sit this one out’

Twitter users were quick to point out the irony of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., promoting Indigenous Peoples’ Day on Monday.

Warren celebrated the holiday, which replaces Columbus Day in various cities across the country, on her account that morning.

“On #IndigenousPeoplesDay we celebrate the contributions, extraordinary resilience and rich cultures of tribal nations and indigenous communities. Today and every day the federal government must commit to honoring its promises to indigenous peoples,” Warren wrote.

Social media users piled on this tweet following Warren’s previous scandal regarding her false claims of Native American heritage.

“Imagine being Elizabeth Warren and thinking you can still be a virtue signaler on this…” tweeted Townhall.com managing editor Spencer Brown.

Podcast host Gerry Callahan wrote: “You honored them by stealing jobs, money and opportunity from them. No American alive today has taken more from native people. For at least this one day you should hide your pale face in shame .”

“You might just want to sit this one out…” tweeted Center for American Liberty founder Harmeet K. Dhillon.

The Spectator’s Stephen Miller joked: “You just celebrate this day a little more than most people.”

Townhall.com columnist Brad Slager wrote, “I spent 1/1024 of Indigenous Peoples Day reading this tweet.”

“Oof. Girl,” tweeted conservative commentator Chad Felix Greene.

Warren previously claimed Native American heritage while teaching at Harvard Law School. At Harvard, Warren was listed as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory, and a 1997 Fordham Law Review article described her as the “first woman of color” to teach at Harvard Law.

Several people, including former President Trump, criticized Warren’s claims, with some noting that she relied primarily on family stories rather than any official documentation. She continued to push back against attacks throughout her campaign for the Senate.

In 2018, Warren released a DNA test that revealed she was only between 1/64 and 1/1024 Native American. Although she promoted this as vindication of her claims at the time, many noted that this would make her less Native American than most average Caucasian Americans. She was later forced to apologize to the Cherokee Nation in 2019 for claiming she was a member of their tribe.

She has since appeared to distance herself from the original DNA test, deleting all tweets, videos and web pages referencing the test in the run-up to her 2020 presidential campaign.
