Una Tribe offers Elizabeth Warren enrollment.

https://ntknetwork.com/native-american- … zMfYawm5Zs

Members of the Una Tribe, a Native American “mixed-blood tribe  founded in 2009 after its membership was rejected by other Native American nations, have granted Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) enrollment in their tribe, according to a report by a CBS affiliate in Eugene, Oregon.

Warren’s presidential campaign has been dogged by backlash over claims of Native American ancestry.

“The Una Nation describes itself as a mixed-blood tribe because its members are Native American mixed with other races, the report stated. “The tribe started in 2009 after being rejected by existing Native American tribes for not meeting the bloodline requirements. Now the tribe is backing Senator Elizabeth Warren, who’s been criticized for saying she’s Native American.

“If she’s Native American or of Native American descent, that means she’s a mixed blood, and we stand by her and her statement that she’s part Native American,  said Richard Lake, the co-founder of the Una Tribe.

“With that in mind, the Una Nation put together a welcome packet for the Massachusetts Senator,  CBS Eugene, Oregon reported.

Lake then went through the welcome packet, which included a welcome letter and a certification of tribal enrollment.

“We’re granting her as a gift enrollment in the Una Nation. When she’s asked next if she’s a member of tribe hopefully she’ll be able to say proudly I’m a member of the Una Nation who accepts me for who I am,  Lake said. “We want to ensure that people like us like her are not overlooked and are not pushed aside any longer.

Well, I'm sure you've seen her Genealogy and her DNA results which she is using to claim Indian blood, so I'm pretty certain she has NO sense at all.

I have spent a lot of time researching this and I cannot find proof one way or the other that this is the same Una Tribe.  I had contacted the Una Tribe in the above article to ask but I never received a reply.

It’s so funny when fake Indians call activist Indians FAKE. “Self hate  comes to mind.

Re: Una Tribe offers Elizabeth Warren enrollment.

What's even "funnier" is when fake Indians call themselves "activist Indians."  What does that call to mind?

Jack Forbes claimed to be a Powhatan-Renape with Lenape ancestry

Everyone on this ancestry chart is listed as White in every census and vital record I've seen.  I'm listing only their birth dates and where they were born.

https://i.ibb.co/DkQXVnt/ancestry-chart-jack-d-forbes.jpg


1940 California Census:  Jack Forbes and his parents, George T. Forbes and Dorothy (Rufener) Forbes all listed as "White."

Name: Jack D Forbes
Age: 6
Estimated birth year: abt 1934
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birthplace: California
Marital status: Single

Household Members:

George T Forbes  38 - Race: White
Dorothy H Forbes  30 - Race: White
Jack D Forbes  6 - Race - White


1930 California Census:  George T. Forbes (Jack's father) and his mother, Mary J. (Jack's paternal grandmother) listed as "White."  George and his mother born in "Texas" and his father (Jack's paternal grandfather) born in "Tennessee."  Mary J.'s father (one of Jack's great-grandfathers) born in "Tennessee" and her mother (one of Jack's great-grandmothers) born in "Germany."

1920 Census: 

https://i.ibb.co/dDHcW9z/Forbes-1920.jpg


1910 Texas Census:  George T. Forbes (Jack's father) and both parents [Jack's paternal grandparents] (Charles W. and Mary J.) listed as "White."  Charles W. and both of his parents (two of Jack's great-grandparents) born in "Missouri."  Mary J. born in "Texas," her father (one of Jack's great-grandfathers) born in "Tennessee" and her mother (one of Jack's great-grandmothers) born in "Germany."

https://i.ibb.co/MsvQBPs/Forbes-1910.jpg


1900 Texas Census:  Same information as 1920.  All members of the family listed as "White."

https://i.ibb.co/mTRj7kn/Forbes-1900.jpg


1860 Missouri Census:  D. F. Forbes and Cary Ann (two of Jack's great-grandparents) and their whole family listed as "White"--including son, Charles W. (Jack's paternal grandfather).  D. F. born in "Alabama."  Cary Ann born in "Kentucky."  Charles W. born in "Missouri."

https://i.ibb.co/5s76pBv/Forbes-1860.jpg


1850 Missouri Census:  Similar information as 1860 except that D. F. is said to have been born in "Kentucky" in this one.  All family members listed as "White."

https://i.ibb.co/xf6hjhN/Forbes-1850.jpg


1930 California Marriage Record:  George T. Forbes and Dorothy H. Rufener (Jack's parents)

https://i.ibb.co/VMwkCpQ/Forbes-Rufener-1930.jpg


1930 California Census: The Rufener family (Jack's mother and maternal grandparents) all listed as "White."  

https://i.ibb.co/DrBs0bL/Rufener-1930.jpg


More of his ancestors--no indication of any of them being Indian, of course.  And, none of them bear any Lenape surnames.  The earliest ones are Quakers!

https://i.ibb.co/x83r5gR/Hoiles-chart.jpg


And some more.  You'd stand a better chance of finding Waldo than an Indian among all the people listed in this post!

Considering what Oscar Loew said in 1874 about the Moqui people.
Actually called us the Turks of the southwest.

Yeah.  Really!  What a phony he appears to have been, huh?

“White" is not only a social construct but a racist one.

So, is it racist to say "Black lives matter."  Or, is it racist to say "Oklahoma" (i.e., "Land of the Red Man"). which is what Oklahoma (a name given by an Indian) means?   

Race is not a social construct.  I'm not going to go over all this again.  Read my posts on the DNA topic.
