Just a little fact to continue shedding light on the claim by Elizabeth Warren to be Cherokee.

Want to know how easily the claim to be Cherokee was thrown around?

While it’s been noted that Warren’s husband, Bruce Mann, submitted recipes to the Pow Wow Chow cookbook, no one has focused on the fact that Mann claimed to be Cherokee in the book:

I’ve been unable to find any indication that Mann asserts actual Cherokee ancestry.

How insulting to the Cherokees that their heritage was used and abused by pretenders so cavalierly.

Update:  Warren herself was accused of plagiarizing her own recipes.  Per commenter Boss Jim, it looks like Mann’s recipe appeared previously — word for word — in the Oswego (NY) Palladium Times on January 24, 1983, the year before Pow Wow Chow was published.  Presumably the recipe circulated in other newspapers and magazines as well.
