The whoops escalate as Brown criticizes Democrat Elizabeth Warren's claims of Native American heritage.

Brown doesn't react in the brief clip, posted by the Democrat-leaning Blue Mass Group.

On Tuesday the group posted another video showing staff members for Brown and the state Republican Party shouting war whoops and performing tomahawk chops.

Brown said he doesn't condone the actions.

The principal chief of the 310,000-member Cherokee Nation Bill John Baker, a Democrat, called the video "offensive and downright racist."

The National Congress of American Indians called the video "extremely disturbing," but also faulted Warren for allowing the public discourse about Native American identity to become misrepresented.

Warren has been unable to document her heritage.
