On December 8, 2017, Kaya Jones, a Canadian-American pop singer and alleged former member of the Pussycat Dolls; made a Twitter announcement that left Indian Country in complete shock.
According to Kaya Jones Tweet; Jones was very excited to announce that she was placed on the National Diversity Coalition for Trump as the Native American Ambassador.
Further, Jones stated she was proud to ‘represent’ her heritage in helping with outreach.
Just recently though, Jones tweeted an image using a choker stating: “Proud half Apache Native American. #Geronimo for God and Country.”
Many citizens of different tribal nations started questioning Jones identity and was demanded to provide information on her “Native identity” claims. Jones response was that she did not know the name of the reservation her father lived on, and was still researching and looking for answers.
Now Indian Country questions what is the purpose of the Trump administration and the “Native American Ambassador.”
Here’s what was tweet on Kaya Jones:
Even Jones Wikipedia page was edited to reflect her “identity claims:”
After extensive talk on social media, assistance was offered to verify Jones claims. Including apologies if Jones provided documentation from the Bureau of Indian Affairs:
Long after Jones identity claims, there’s been no documents or information showed to the public to substantiate her claims, but in fact, goes around the question and continues to ask for an opportunity to share her story.
