What's behind Trump's 'Pocahontas' attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren?

What's behind Trump's 'Pocahontas' attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren? | Indigenous Sovereignty | Scoop.it
The tone of Trump's retorts to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claims Native American heritage, has grown increasingly personal and racially charged.
Jacqueline Keeler's insight:
Mary Kathryn Nagle, a playwright, attorney and citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, believes that Trump is the last person who should be casting stones at Warren. “Trump’s inability to discern the difference between Sen. Warren and Pocahontas is no accident. Instead, his attack on her native identity reflects a dominant American culture that has made every effort to diminish native women to nothing other than a fantastical, oversexualized, Disney character,” she told MSNBC on Monday. “Today, native women are more likely to be murdered, raped, and abused than any other American population.” 

 “Until individuals like Trump are held accountable for their trivialization of native women’s identity and bodies, we will continue to be murdered and abused at rates that originated at the time of colonization,” Nagle added. “That is not, in my view, ‘making America great.’”
