Scott Brown Staffers Caught on Camera Making Indian 'War Whoops' to Mock Elizabeth Warren, Brown Disavows Action

News

Campaign staffers for Sen. Scott Brown were caught on camera chanting Indian "war whoops" and making "tomahawk chops" during a rally in Boston earlier this week, seemingly mocking Elizabeth Warren's Cherokee heritage claims.

The YouTube video shows a number of Brown's staffers holding campaign signs and making the war whoops and tomahawk chops, representing two very common indian stereotypes, directly across from Warren supporters.

According to WCVB in Boston, "Brown's Deputy Chief of Staff Greg Casey and Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard, State Director Jerry McDermott, special assistant Jennifer Franks and GOP operative Brad Garrett" are all present in the video.

Brown condemned the display but also criticized Warren for "checking the box" and claiming she is Native American when she applied at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania.

"It is certainly something that I don't condone," Brown said. "The real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure."
