The Boston Globe had to retract the percentages of DNA that line with Native American heritage from being 1/32 Native American.
The Boston Globe first error retraction,
“Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 6th to 10th generation relative. The generational range based on the ancestor that the report identified suggests she’s between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.”
The second correction the Boston Globe will need to make is the fact that the results were not for Native American. The results that she received were she may be 1/64th and 1/1024th Mexican, Colombian, or Peruvian.
The Cherokee Nation responded to Senator Warren’s DNA test.
The most embarassing aspect for Elizabeth Warren is she may have less Native American DNA than the average European-American,, which has 0.18% Native American DNA.
