Native Americans Outraged Over Trump 'Pocahontas' Comments

"Before we held the ceremony, we consulted with a number of other white experts, and we all agreed that Andrew Jackson was great", she said.

"Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time - longer than you".

"I just want to thank you because you're very, very special people", Trump said to the men who were recruited into the U.S. Marine Corps to transmit tactics and vital information in a language that was then incomprehensible to America's World War II enemies.

The president has repeatedly mocked the MA senator for claims she made about being part Native American.

Trump makes 'Pocahontas' slur at Native American ceremony

Native American leaders fired back at President Donald Trump's reference to Sen. John Norwood, general secretary of the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes, told NBC News that he really wishes the president would "stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents". "Pocahontas was a real person - her name was Matoaka", she said. "Pocahontas" - during a White House event to honor Navajo code talkers.

Navajo Nation Council delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty cited the event as the "latest example of systemic, deep-seated ignorance" about Native Americans.

"You were here long before any of us were here", Trump told three Navajo veterans on Monday.

"It's really hard to say that a DNA test would be able to identify how much Native American ancestry a person has", Garrison told the Washington Post.

The Navajo code talkers used their native language to outwit USA enemies and exchange classified military information throughout both World Wars.

"Every time that Donald Trump calls me "Pocahontas"-and the media goes insane over it-he's happy that people are not focused on how he's trying to cut taxes for billionaires and giant corporations", the senator added in the email". "What Trump displayed today was an embarrassment to our values and a disgraceful insult to the heroes of our history".

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye explained to CNN that the way the term was used would be characterized as an ethnic slur, and he said it "doesn't belong in the room when our war heroes are being honored".

"I think what most people find offensive is Sen". Warren's claim of having Native American heritage.
