Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 White House hopeful, on Monday acknowledged the controversy over her claim of Native American heritage, saying she has made “mistakes.”
“Like anyone who’s been honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes,” Warren told attendees at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum in Sioux City, Iowa.
“I am sorry for harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations we have had together,” she added.
Warren faced backlash late last year when she released results of a test that demonstrated she was between 1/64 and 1/1028 Native American. She has since apologized repeatedly for the confusion caused when she identified herself as a Native American.
