Kicking off her presidential campaign over the weekend, Massachusetts Sen.
Warren has faced criticism from some Native people for amplifying sensitive issues around tribal citizenship versus ancestry, though she never claimed citizenship in a tribe. The senator was introduced by New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland, one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress a year ago.
Warren would be contesting against incumbent President Trump, who on one occasion called her "Pocahontas" due to her alleged Native American ancestry.
"Whether it's building coalitions among allies or reaching across the aisle to bridge divides, Cheryl is masterful at persuading public policy makers to do what's right for Native communities".
Warren officially launched her presidential campaign on Saturday in her home state of MA at a mill site where largely immigrant and female factory workers went on strike in 1912 to call attention to the wealthy power brokers who "have been waging a class warfare against hardworking people for decades", Warren said in her speech.

Massachusetts Senator Warren officially launched her presidential bid on Saturday, inspiring Lowe to tweet that she "would bring a whole new meaning to Commander in 'Chief'". Warren's remark comes as Trump's legal woes mount and as Mueller's investigation on Russian election interference has closed in on several key members of the President's circle, reports The Washington Post.
Warren filled out the card in April 1986 using blue ink, making it the first document to show her make the claim using her own handwriting.
Warren lied about her racial status to gain attention and admittance to elite schools.
A spokeswoman for Haaland confirmed that the congresswoman introduced Warren at the luncheon. The National Congress of American Indians has condemned Trump's "Pocahontas" moniker.
Warren has chose to ignore what she called Trump's "every day efforts to divide and distract", a campaign spokesperson told CNN. "Even though it was held it the same location as the conference it was not an NCAI event".
CNN reported that she did not address her Native American heritage controversies. She downplayed talk of impeachment and stressed to reporters that she was focused on "structural" problems that "were broken long before Donald Trump got here". "I never used it to advance my career".
