Claiming one has some distant Native American ancestor in order to sound more exotic or interesting when in fact no such Native American ancestor exists.

This practice is also relatively common by some American celebrities and personalities.
Larry: "And my great-great grandmother was part Choctaw and Apache."

Bob: "Larry, that's BS, your paternal grandparents where German immigrants and your maternal grandparents were Irish immigrants. You sound like you have a case of Cherokee Grandmother Syndrome."

James: "Hey did you hear Elizabeth Warren is 1/32nd Cherokee?"

Dustin: "Pff, yeah sure man"
