It almost as if we’ve heard this story somewhere before, but we can’t quite place it. According to the New York Times Magazine, Andrea Smith, a prominent academic, was found to have faked her Cherokee ancestry even after calling out white feminists for co-opting her Native culture. She’s been exposed, but still, her career in academia continues to thrive — how is that possible?
Andrea Smith, a prominent academic, was once called “an icon of Native American feminism.” She called out white feminists for co-opting Native identities. She has since been exposed for faking her Cherokee ancestry. Why has her career continued to thrive?https://t.co/PxImCpXxBK

And after all the work you’ve done to promote the careers of real native Americans like Elizabeth Warren

This woman has done a lot of damage to real native american feminists such as Liz Warren

Everyone trying to compare this woman to Liz Warren clearly didn't read the article. Andrea Smith had her family researched in the 90's and knew since then she wasn't Cherokee, but kept saying she was anyway. Way, way, way worse.

Lol Warren did the exact same shit.
— Meretricious Profligacy (@MeretriciousPro) May 26, 2021
Warren took a victory lap in the media after a DNA test found she had as much Native American ancestry as any American plucked off the street at random.
Is this your way of endorsing Andrea Smith 2024?
