NPR Discussion: ‘How Do You Prove You’re a Native American?’

On the June 7th edition of the NPR program “Talk of the Nation,” guests discussed the questions of Indian identity and ethnic fraud that have come to the surface with the recent flap over Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren. Warren, who at times has claimed Native ancestry, is embroiled in a “what did she say and when did she say it?” controversy, although the question that concerns many people is “did she use it to her advantage?”

Host Neal Conan spoke with author David Treuer and freelance journalist Mary Annette Pember, a frequent contributor to ICTMN.
