Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) on Wednesday was asked twice whether she identified herself as an “American Indian” on other documents, but avoided answering the question both times.
Warren took questions from reporters after she apologized for identifying herself as a Native American for almost two decades, including on her registration card for the State Bar of Texas, where she listed her race as “American Indian.”
“Are there any more documents or any more forms like this out there that you have listed yourself as that could come out?” a reporter asked Warren.
The senator dodged the question, instead mentioning how she and her brother grew up hearing stories about Indian ancestry, saying, “This is our family’s story.”
