Warren’s extended family split about heritage
Some recall, others deny any links to Native Americans
In the absence of documentation, Elizabeth Warren’s link to any Native American tribe is a matter of narrative inheritance or folklore, as she puts it. On this subject, Warren’s extended family has mixed opinions. The stories shared by second cousin Ina Mapes, as well as Warren’s brothers and a number of her cousins, echo Warren’s assertion. But other cousins, many of whom also do not know Warren, say they know nothing of Native American blood in the family.
