Direct claims of native ancestry in the 17-minute speech came down to the following: "My mother's family was part Native-American".
Her mother was born in Oklahoma in 1912 and married her father in 1932, Warren said.
Yet for Warren, ever since the 2012 election that elevated her to the United States Senate, the topic of her ancestry has been scrutinized and labeled by political opponents as a fable itself - a made-up claim she used to further her own career.
There have been many rumors swirling about the possibility of Warren running for president in 2020, but none have been confirmed.

Warren vowed to fight for infrastructure improvements and investments in tribal lands and to battle "discrimination and neglect" against the Native American community, decrying a USA government that "robbed you of your land, suppressed your languages, put your children in boarding schools and gave your babies away for adoption". I will use my national platform to advance the rights of Native Americans and I commit to building real relationships in Indian Country as an ally and supporter.
At Wednesday's speech, Warren acknowledged that she isn't enrolled in a tribe and that her family isn't included in tribe rolls.
"We have a president who can't make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without reducing Native history, Native culture, Native people to the butt of a joke", Warren said.
Warren told the Native American group that Trump's taunts had led her to a decision: "Every time someone brings up my family's story, I'm going to use it to lift up the story of your families and your communities".
With all due respect Warren should shut the hell up until she provides actual documentation to substantiate her claim of having Native American blood. And I want to make something clear. However, Warren did mention her heritage in a directory for the Association of American Law Schools, according to the CNN.
Nokia 6 4GB RAM variant launched in India: Price, specs and more
In terms of specifications, the new Nokia 6 variant is nearly the same as that of the previous model (except the RAM and storage). The smartphone is backed by a non-removable 3,000mAh battery which can last for a day on a single charge with moderate usage.
The questions snowballed after that, when other outlets reported that Warren had been listed as a "minority" in other colleges and universities where she had taught. Despite conservative claims that she exploited race-based affirmative action to be hired at Harvard Law School, the evidence is clear that Warren never gained any professional advantage from her claimed heritage. The real fun happened when she argued that, by calling her "Pocahontas", Trump was insulting all Native Americans.
Jefferson Keel, president of the tribal congress, said his group was "deeply honored by the courage" Warren showed in addressing a topic that has vexed her for almost six years. She said she "never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead".
"In the fairy tale, Pocahontas and John Smith meet and fall in love", Warren said.
"For far too long, your story has been pushed aside, to be trotted out only in cartoons and commercials", she told the audience.
