Description“A Cherokee woman joined Jesse Watters to criticize Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for refusing to back down on her claim of Cherokee ancestry.

Watters said Warren was recognized by Harvard University as their first minority female faculty member after the 68-year-old applied to the job as a Native American.

"As a mixed Native woman, I get to relive the stereotypes that Warren perpetuates every day," Rebecca Nagle of Oklahoma told Watters.

"I'm not 'part-Cherokee', I am Cherokee," she said. "[We're] not bit fractions of imagined Indians that used to exist. [Warren should] take responsibility for her false claim."
