What does a Native American look like?
In his debates with Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown claimed that he could look at Warren and tell that she isn't Native American. My friend Anj Petto at the National Center for Science Education worked up a little exercise to test this hypothesis. I have modified his work slightly and present my version here.
Test your ability to determine, by sight alone, who has Native American ancestry. The answers are below the fold.
