Cruel irony in Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee saga

Cruel irony in Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee saga

Throughout her career and political campaign, Elizabeth Warren has found victims everywhere she looked, including when she looked in the mirror and saw an alleged descendant of one of the most historically victimized groups, Native Americans.

In what may be the ultimate and cruelest irony, not only is it unlikely that Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was Cherokee, it turns out that Warren’s great-great-great grandfather was a member of a militia unit which participated in the round-up of the Cherokees in the prelude to the Trail of Tears.

The evidence resulted from a tip provided by a Legal Insurrection reader to a genealogical compilation of militia members who allegedly participated in the removal of the Cherokees from Georgia.  The list included the name Jonathan Crawford, who was the husband of O.C. Sarah Smith, the person the Warren campaign has identified as Warren’s great-great-great grandmother and allegedly Cherokee.

Since confirming this genealogical information was outside my comfort zone, I forwarded the information to author and genealogist Michael Patrick Leahy, who already had written about and investigated Warren’s genealogy.

Leahy reaches the conclusion, based on a variety of sources, that Jonathan Crawford was indeed a member of the militia which rounded up Cherokees in the prelude to the Trail of Tears.

Leahy lays out the evidence supporting his conclusion in a post at Breitbart.com, Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees for Trail of Tears:

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

Why is this the ultimate and cruelest irony?

Who Warren’s great-great-great grandparents were or what they did should be irrelevant, except that Warren has incorporated “lore” about those victimized ancestors into her own personal, professional and, now, political narratives.

Recall the background.

In the mid-1980’s through the mid-1990’s Elizabeth Warren filled out biographical forms for the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) identifying herself as Native American.

That self-designation was based solely on Warren’s family “lore” not genealogical research, and resulted in Warren being included on a list of “Minority Law Professors” in the AALS annual directory.  That listing would have put Warren in a position to benefit from the desire of law schools to diversify their faculties.

Warren apparently did nothing else to follow up on her alleged heritage, such as seeking tribal membership or publicly identifying herself as Native American, even though she says her alleged Native American heritage was a frequent topic of family conversation.

When The Boston Herald discovered that Harvard Law School in 1996 was promoting Warren as Native American, Warren pleaded ignorance, and denied ever identifying as Native American in any professional capacity.

When law professor David Bernstein discovered the AALS annual directories, Warren then asserted that she listed herself that way in order to meet other Native Americans.  That explanation made no sense since the AALS annual directories only list the category “minority,” not which minority.  Warren also never has explained why she stopped listing herself as Native American in the AALS annual directory after joining Harvard Law.

Shortly after the controversy broke, the Warren campaign asserted that Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, may have been Cherokee based on an electronic index of a marriage license filled out by O.C. Sarah Smith’s son.  That would make Warren 1/32 Cherokee, a notion which has formed the basis for Warren’s defense of her AALS listing, even though Warren was not aware of the 1/32 Cherokee connection until recently.

But further scrutiny caused that 1/32 connection to be called into question, since none of the source documents confirmed that O.C. Sarah Smith was Cherokee.  According to Leahy, there is no credible evidence that O.C. Sarah Smith was Cherokee, and the best evidence is that O.C. Smith was at least partially of Swedish descent.

The entire episode has led to claims that Warren tried to game the system, to take flimsy family “lore” and spin it into minority status to help Warren in climbing the law school ladder all the way to Harvard Law School, which touted Warren’s Native American status at a time when it was under intense pressure to hire more minority law professors.  To this day Harvard Law says it has a single Native American law professor, although it will not identify if Warren is that person.

Where are we as of this writing?

Warren’s Native American self-narrative has not held up to scrutiny, so far.  Worse still, that narrative has revealed a cruel irony in the form of Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, who was a member of the militia which rounded up the Cherokees in the prelude to the Trail of Tears.

Some family lores are better than others, I suppose.

“When law professor David Bernstein discovered the AALS annual directories, Warren then asserted that she listed herself that way in order to meet other Native Americans.”

I can’t remember where I read it, but a Native American group at Harvard has come out and said that Warren has never once contacted them or attended any of their events.

So, I guess she lost interest in meeting people just like her.

    Like so many Collectivists, there is NOTHING about this Warren women that indicates she even LIKES other people.

    Senatorial wannabe Elizabeth Warren, aka Fauxcahontas, said she listed herself as a minority in law school directories because she was hoping to meet others with Native American roots. So isn’t it a shame that Liz took a pass on last weekend’s 17th annual Harvard Powwow????

    The Harvard Law School prof was campaigning on the North Shore last Saturday while Harvard’s Native American Program filled Radcliffe Yard with Native American singers, dancers and drummers.

    “The Harvard Powwow … is a great way to bring local tribes into the Harvard community, acknowledging the ancestral homelands, and show our heritage,” Cesar Alvarez ’13, the incoming president of Native Americans at Harvard College, told the Harvard Gazette.

Given the variegates of the law and of other aspects of life, is it possible that since her GGG Grandfather did in fact persecute her GGG Grandmother’s people before those two ancestors married, and that she’s in fact the product of an abusive relationship going back many years, which is only now being completely understood?

Or, does Ms Warren in fact owe an apology for all the mean and disgusting acts performed by her GGG Grandfather and his minions, to all non-majority peoples everywhere.

Is there anyone here who can reasonably explain the meaning of Ms. Warren’s ancestry such that she is, or is not, absolved of all further blame for anything and everything else.

    janitor in reply to Doug Wright. | May 8, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    I had a similar wondering… if the ggg-granddad was involved with Cherokees, that did he marry one… just idle curiosity.

    I am enjoying LI’s investigative journalism in this ongoing story. What a stand-up job!

Princess Dances Alone. The tears are for the Cherokees oppressed.

Warren’s great-great-great grandpapa was just being a good Jacksonian Democrat 😉

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to iambasic. | May 8, 2012 at 7:48 pm

    In 1813 800 Cherokee reluctantly helped Jackson fight off Tecumsah & his Shaunee who had sided with the British . (The Shaunee had asked for them to join an alliance against The americans ).

    Then they helped him beat their historical enemies The Creek at The Battle of Horseshoe Bend by sneaking up behind the Creek lines by canoe.

    So having sided with the Democrat Jackson it was all downhill from there.

    Of course it is more complicated than that but it is a good barb to attack Democrat friends with at dinner parties.

    Also The Cherokee are no angels but that is a secret.

    (My information is from The Civil War In The Smokies” Neil Fisher 2005. published by The Great smokey Mountans Assoc.. Neil is an ex Ohio histoian ho lives in Charlotte NC . Recommend his books.

She’s a perfect leftist with a great career ahead of her. In fact, she can strengthen the democratic ticket this fall by replacing Joe Biden for veep.

Hokumhantus’ press spokesman stated, “Family lore says that great-great-great grandpa was really a Cherokee who joined the militia so he could go out and meet others like himself.”

[…] By claiming to have Native American blood, Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren has opened up a can of worms that may be her undoing.  Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has been writing about this bizarre Indian saga, and it looks like Lizzie got caught in a lie.  […]

This calls for a song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwGLQRYzVF4&feature=related

Whispering-down-the-lane family history transformed from “being a Native American” to the truth; “taking part in oppressing Native Americans.” Nice job there Warren. Any normal person would be mortified. I agree with ‘MTED’, this will probably win her a place in Whatshisname’s administration.

Group guilt where the sins of the father are handed down to the son or where one tribe is held guilty of the actions of all of its members is a thing only practiced in primitive cultures by barbarians… such as we have become. Warren illustrates perfectly what you get into when you try to do anything but hold the individual responsible for his own actions. Does she get the free pass handed to the oppressed Indians or does she suffer the discrimination now meted out to the white oppressor when her ancestors consist of both?

As an aside I have to disagree that there is no proof Smith was an Indian. She has “OC” right in her name “Original Cherokee” just like “OG” is original gangster.

southcentralpa | May 8, 2012 at 2:50 pm

I disagree. The cruelist part, at least for Professor Warren, is that she is not the actual Donk nominee yet. I have no doubt the party bosses are trying to figure out a) which of the other candidates who withdrew should UNwithdraw and b) when the best time to unwithdraw is.

As things stand now, any other candidate who can get enough support (a mere 15%) in next month’s State Convention to get on the Dem primary ballot can pretty much be assured of a victory in September’s primary.

After the Fauxcahantas business, can that person beat Brown? Unlikely…

So has Harvard School of Lore terminated the Gottlieb Professor of Lore, Crockajawea Warren? Why hasn´t she been disbarred or will she follow the example of her bossman, the Mulatto in Mom jeans who voluntarily (¿¿?) gave up his license.LOL

    Milhouse in reply to beloved2. | May 8, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Um, why would they terminate her? Does this incident somehow make her less of an expert on bankruptcy law? And why would she be disbarred? It’s embarrassing, but what rule of professional conduct does it violate?

      How about falsifying her application?

        iconotastic in reply to Towson Lawyer. | May 8, 2012 at 9:04 pm

        That presumes that she put this lie on the application itself. Of course, now that Harvard has publicly stated that being an Indian (pretindian?) didn’t factor into the hiring decision it will be more than a little embarrassing to fire her for not being an Indian.

        Of course, being an assumed indian may not have factored into the hiring decision–it just may have factored into the interviewing decisions.

Doesn’t Warren now owe reparations(ah the sweet irony)? Not only for her ancestor’s role in the trail of tears, but for displacing a true minority from a Harvard position. Completely contemptable.

    Milhouse in reply to doubletap. | May 8, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Displacing a “true minority”? What “true minority” do you think would have been hired? Nobody is alleging that she was hired for her minority status.

      doubletap in reply to Milhouse. | May 9, 2012 at 12:54 am

      Never heard of racial quotas? Warren was counted in the diversity calculus and as a result, a deserving true minority applicant was displaced.

theduchessofkitty | May 8, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Meanwhile, Senator Scott Brown is popping open a cold one, sitting on his most comfy recliner and enjoying the show – and passing the popcorn, to boot! 🙂

    I wish he had that much sense. Instead:

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown demanded that Elizabeth Warren release her law school applications and personnel files today, saying questions about Warren’s Native American heritage mean she must answer, “whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a professor.”

    Bad idea.

    The proper tactic is to mock Warren and imply, without ever saying so outright, that Warren is as little qualified, and as underhanded, wrt the Senate as she was wrt Harvard. The mockery should be done by surrogates while Brown talks about what a good Senator he is.

    Mock the Left and they’re tongue-tied. Attack them and they play the victim. They have lots of practice. They’re good at it. So far Warren’s efforts to play the victim have not gained traction, but IMO Brown’s frontal attack will help her.

    I keep cautioning that a campaign against an incumbent President can afford very few unforced errors. Ditto for Republicans, including RINOs, running in a blue state like MA.

Pale face speak with forked tongue.

Well this should put to rest the idea that Democrats were and are anti-military. Elizabeth Warren descends from a long line of distinguished military/militia citizens who proudly wore the uniform.

Romney, on the other hand, never served in the military and his questioning the decedents of those who took up the call smacks of hipocracy and again shows the Republicans deep seated hate and fear of successful women.

    Mary Sue in reply to Anchovy. | May 8, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Smacks of hypocrisy eh? That’s rich. Republicans have a deep-seated contempt for privileged women who prey on the decency of middle America. Selling policies to lift true victims of prejudice tugs on the old heartstrings and prods a bit of guilt in those who never took a handout doesn’t it? Naturally, the true beneficiaries of these programs are hypocrites like Warren who would elbow the nearest Native American out of her way to claim some bullshit birthright.

Your name was mentioned here relating to this story.

“…there is no credible evidence that O.C. Sarah Smith was Cherokee, and the best evidence is that O.C. Smith was at least partially of Swedish descent.”

As proof, the Warren campaign reported that O.C. is short for Obviously Cherokee.

So how is Princess Spreading Bull going to spin this?

That’s not irony, that’s just desserts. Or as Rev. Wright would say “Her Cherokees were coming home to roost.”

I think it’s time to end this racial scorecard keeping and just admit were all in this same leaky boat together and if it founders and sinks it won’t matter much what the color of your skin or the church you go to for the effects to hurt you and your family. And that’s who were really in this game for anyway.

Congratulations to you, and your readers/source, for staying on top of this from the beginning and doing the work to put this out in the open.

Really nice work. I don’t where this will all end up, I’m not qualified to comment on the genealogy work, but where there is smoke, there is fire. Each inconsistency adds up to evidence of bad intent. As they say, its not the initial action but the cover-up that kills. And if you are used to the media covering for you, well, what a surprise when you run into the conservative blogosphere.

I read a number of blogs, but in terms of tone, the ability to get ahead of or spot a trend early, and grab onto it like a bulldog on a bone, Professor, you run one of the best. From the national scene to individual stories like this, the Widener law professor, etc. you do our cause, and our nation, proud. Really, really fun to see this stuff in action.

Still a lot of work to be done between now and the general election, but I would say you earned a nice cold beer tonight.

(FYI, I contributed to Mourdock, that’s looking like another win too. Credit yourself for your influence helping there too … and on that note, one more time, I’d like to ask to put Cruz up on the board as a Senate race to target where I think we can have an impact.)
