The big kerfuffle here in Massachusetts is did she use her 1/32nd Native American heritage to qualify for special consideration as a minority and if she did was she entitled to do so. It's an interesting issue from my perspective.
Well apparently Harvard Law School has listed her as a Minority-Native American Professor. What is getting everyone's attention here in MA is that she may have used the minority status to qualify for set asides. Therefore, is she a Native American?

Well... 1/32nd also means that she is 96.875% non-Native American.
I think she just fell prey to basic legal reasoning which goes something like this; it doesn't matter if it is right or wrong. It only matters if it defensible vs indefensible.
