The Massachusetts Republican Party is greeting Elizabeth Warren's speech at the Democratic National Convention with a video featuring North Carolina Cherokee tribe members slamming Warren for identifying herself as Native American. The flap over this issue has proved to be tough for the Warren campaign to put to bed.

The video is set in Cherokee, N.C., on a Cherokee reservation three hours away from Charlotte. Sample quote: "Yeah, Elizabeth Warren should be ashamed of herself. It’s slapping Native Americans in the face."
