President Trump resurrected the controversy over his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when he referred to her as “Pocahontas” during a Navajo Code Talker ceremony.

Tucker Carlson spoke to Neesu Wushuwunoag, or “Two Hawks”, about the controversy and his own quest to reclaim land now owned by Brown University.

Two Hawks, of the Aboriginal Nations of America, said the Rhode Island school stole the land from his ancestors.

But, he said that a previous interview with Carlson got the school’s attention – yet not enough to get his tribe their land back.

Carlson said Warren claimed to be Native American to land a six-figure job at Harvard University, but has not been able to prove such ancestry.

The mainstream media accused Trump of using a “racial slur” when calling Warren “Pocahontas” – the name of a 17th Century Powhatan woman who later was reported to have married pioneer John Rolfe.

Two Hawks said he often struggles with people stereotyping what Natives of the eastern woodlands are “supposed to look like” and found it “insulting” that Warren used the ethnicity for her own gain.

Carlson noted Warren has to-date refused to take an ancestry test.

V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai, a Republican-turned-Independent vying for Warren’s senate seat in 2018, said he sent her a DNA test for her birthday this past Summer.
