Is falsely claiming Native American lineage an Elizabeth thing?
As Campus Reform reports, Elizabeth Hoover, an associate professor of environmental science, policy and management at the University of California Berkeley, recently admitted she has no tribal connections after decades of claiming otherwise.
Hoover is “one of 11 self-identified Native American/Alaska Native ladder-rank faculty members at Berkeley,” according to the Berkeley News.
According to Campus Reform, Hoover released an official statement on the issue last month titled “Statement about Identity.” In it, she discussed the results of her investigation into whether she truly had Native American roots.
“Now, without any official documentation verifying the identity I was raised with, I do not think it is right for me to continue to claim to be a scholar of Mohawk/Mi’kmaq descent,” Hoover wrote.
Because of the “new revelations”, she will stop identifying as of Mohawk/Mi’kmag descent.
Hoover has been making the false claim about her heritage since a teenager. In 1996, she told newspaper that “Being of Native American descent I am annoyed at mascots such as ‘Indians’ or ‘Chiefs’” and that “for a school with all white students it is ludacris to have a mascot of a race that is not represented there.”
Phony claims of Indian lineage just seem to be an Elizabeth thing.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren for years falsely claimed connections with a Native American tribe. She did so to further her academic and political career. The shyster had to apologize to the Cherokee Nation after the results of her DNA test came back positive for liar.
The painfully woke seem to have one identity crisis after another.
