The popular video news site 'Now This news,' known for its short videos on a myriad of pertinent topics across the social media landscape, and has millions of followers on social media, has recently released a video titled “Native Leaders Unhappy About Sen. Warren's Public DNA Test,” which features the comments for Indian Country Today associate editor Vincent Schilling.
The video, produced by Mike Madden at Now This delves into how the Native community has responded to Senator Warren’s DNA test, proclaiming she has Native American ancestry.
The video also includes quotes from the Cherokee Nation as well as from Kim Tallbear an author of a book about Native American DNA practices.
In the video Schilling says Warren bowed to the pressure that Native people feel every day, and that there is no escape hatch plan. He calls Warren’s test, ‘A colonial solution to a Native American problem.”
Here is the video on Facebook and on Twitter.
