The Warren Debacle Exacerbates a 527 year old Problem

Critique to date:There have been a lot of articles written about Elizabeth Warren’s use of Direct to Market testing to prove her native ancestry and what it means both politically and socially in the USA. This action was complicated & layered by the involvement of Carlos Bustamante, a Latino genomicist who has been a vocal advocate for Amerindigenous research. Many of the strongest objections have come from American Indian academics and genome scientists. These highly credentialed Natives have come under attack from laypeople & media alike for being out of touch with grassroots Native community members.
