It's the box you check on the EEO-1 form to identify your Indian ethnicity to prospective employers and the federal government. It's the one that gets you preferences in hiring and promotions and special protections if you screw up and get fired. It's the box you'll find halfway down page two of the form at this link:

The box in question is the one with this description next to it:

American Indian/Alaska Native A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North America and South America (including Central America), and who maintains tribal affiliation or community attachment.

That box.
?
Elizabeth Warren dare not show the box she checked

http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/10/elizabeth-warren-dare-n...

...the standard EEOC definition of Native American which requires both Native American ancestry and either tribal affiliation or community recognition. Warren cannot meet either test. She cannot point to an ancestor who was Native American, and she never had tribal affiliation or recognition by any Native American community... At the time she checked the box she would have known that she did not meet the definition.

If this is the box Warren checked, and it likely was, then she knowingly claimed an ethnic identity she knew she was not entitled to claim based on a definition which was spelled out for her.

That is why Warren will not release her employment records... Equally important, the checking of that box might have legal implications depending upon whether the document was signed under oath or penalty of perjury. Even if not under penalty of perjury, the box was checked for Harvard's federal filing purposes, which creates its own set of problems for Warren.

Something Warren and Obama have in common, besides hating freedom: Neither will release records that would shed more light on who they really are.
