“If Warren did have testing and it found Native American ancestry, we could be confident” she had a tribal ancestor, said 23andMe’s Bryc. But if it weren’t found, it could be because DNA from a single Native American ancestor happened not to survive five generations of DNA scrambling. “Just because DNA [associated with Native Americans or any other population group] isn’t there doesn’t mean you should give up your family stories,” said AncestryDNA’s Byrnes. www.statnews.com...

Ok thats nice. But... Again you assumed my decendancy was .. white? black? It's like black people calling each other N--- you know that word right. So why is ok for them but no one else? You don't know what my bloodline is, and you're trying to school me in what is 'right' and 'wrong'.
People are people. Names shouldn't matter. If you get upset over a simple name then how can you handle anything else, cry about it? Yell? SFlakes revenge because of a name? Remember that song in preschool it goes like this. Sticks and Stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me. Names only hurt you if you let them. Is this planet Earth or Planet tattle tale you called me a name I dont like wahhh? I'm not saying this to offend I'm saying it to show you how stupid it looks when people whine and complain about stuff non stop. Agree or Disagree doesnt matter.
It's like complaining about the word Ahole being used, there's always someone who's offended by something. It's called Life.
No hard feelings.

She labeled herself as Native American for gain in her profession
No she didnt. where did you hear that? Where did you read that?
Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said on Wednesday that she listed herself as a minority in directories of law professors in the hopes of networking with other “people like me” — meaning those with Native American roots.
Last week, Warren said she had no idea that Harvard was touting her as a minority in the 1990s. But two days later, she acknowledged that for years before she joined the faculty at Harvard, she had been classifying herself as a minority professor in a directory of the Association of American Law Schools.
That directory included Warren on a list of minority professors from 1986 through 1995.

Why should she have to prove it to anyone?

Low samplings has nothing to do with it. If you have enough Native American DNA to be detected, it will be.
You are incorrect.
Feel free to argue with the linked article.
The Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has passed a new enrollment ordinance that requires DNA testing for new applicants to the tribe’s rolls. The DNA testing will be used to verify the applicant’s parental lineage.
The new enrollment ordinance also creates a process for disenrolling those who don’t qualify as Cherokee.
