Tribal leaders say 2020 should be about 'life or death' issues, not Warren's DNA


September 3, 2019

(WASHINGTON) — Tribal leaders say it’s a grave disappointment that the political focus on Native Americans these days can seem limited to their reaction to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test results or President Donald Trump calling her “Pocahontas” to disparage her fraught history of claiming Native American ancestry.

Attention, instead, should be paid to issues such as health care and suicide that for years have plagued Native Americans living both on and off reservations, tribal leaders and Native Americans from around the country told ABC News in a series of interviews.
