Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Saturday that her “connection” to her “indigenous heritage” had recently been awakened by the “Lakota Sioux.”
“One of the things that first started awakening and connecting me in a deep to my indigenous heritage was connecting with the Lakota Sioux at Standing Rock,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a video posted on social media.
“I was surrounded by native people, Lakota Sioux, Cherokee… I looked around, and it just clicked. Like, this is us!” she explained.
