Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday apologized for previously identifying as Native American.
Warren, who apologized recently to the Cherokee Nation for taking a DNA test to show that she had Native American ancestry, told The Washington Post that the apology was meant to include identifying herself as Native American while at a professor at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania.
