Scott Brown Staffers Mock Elizabeth Warren’s ‘Native Identity’ With ‘Tomahawk Chops’ on Video

On Tuesday the issue of Elizabeth Warren’s Native identity turned ugly. A Boston CBS station, WCVB, reported that staffers for Brown chanted "war whoops" and made "tomahawk chops" to show their distaste for Warren's background. When asked about it by that station. Brown said he didn't condone it, but said "the real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure." The ugly side of this issue – racist imagery – has been with the campaign for months, just under the surface. This spring headlines included "Sitting Bull***" to "Pinocchio-hontas." The Native American Journalists Association issued a statement that said: "NAJA is disappointed that coverage of U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's claimed Native heritage has resulted in a series of disrespectful headlines and puns that show disregard for Native Americans and our history."
