Democratic presidential hopeful and firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren apologized to the Cherokee Nation this week; admitting she was wrong to publicly release her DNA test results to prove she had Native American ancestry.

“We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to an end,” Hubbard added.
