Watson's Pocahontas claim incredible


Has anyone who knows and understands the descendants of Pocahontas challenged the claim by Rep. Diane Watson to be a direct descendant? I would like to have seen the full context of the claim because, normally, politicians do not leave themselves open to such scrutiny without some sort of escape clause. It just seems incredible that Rep. Watson would pick an Indian princess to stake her high ground on, so she can run roughshod over the Cherokee Nation.
