Pocahontas and her father, Chief Powhatan, have many notable descendants, including Edith Bolling Galt Wilson (Woodrow Wilson’s wife), American Western actor Glenn Strange, astronomer and mathematician Percival Lowell!
One of them is Debbie “White Dove” Porreco!
She was recently in a Palm Beach, Fla. restaurant where someone referred to her as “Pocahontas,” and told Carlson she was not offended by the remark or reference to her ancestor.
Porreco said she wanted to challenge Warren, who Tucker Carlson said may run for president in 2020, to take a DNA test to certify the Native American ancestry she often claims to hold.
“I respect Senator Warren as a U.S. senator… but I just wish she’d take the DNA test,” Porreco said, adding that such a move would “end a lot of this controversy” over whether Warren is indeed part Cherokee.
Also back in Septemeber un an interview with Sky News, Debbie “White Dove” Porreco said that Trump once asked her if it offended her that he used the name “Pocahontas” to refer to the Democratic senator.
“I know that he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco explained. “He said, ‘well does that offend you when I use that?’ And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me.”
“If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco said. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”
Porreco, who was the model for Disney’s Pocahontas character, was recently profiled in an article in Palm Beach Daily News. The piece explained that Porreco grew up poor on a reservation before attending college and working as a flight attendant.
“Sometimes when I’m dining at Mar-a-Lago, I think to myself, ‘You’ve come a long way from that Indian reservation you started in,” she said. “Pocahontas had dreams and went to England. My dreams brought me to Palm Beach.”
So now at least we know on which side the real Pocahontas is!
Do you think that Senator Warren should take the DNA test?
