Shailene Woodley Debunks Thanksgiving: ‘Our Children Are Taught False Narratives’

Shailene Woodley – who was among 27 people arrested on October 10 for protesting the Dakota Access pipeline – joined hundreds more pipeline opponents who gathered to continue protesting on Thanksgiving Day (November 24) at a campsite in North Dakota.

“Today is a day that many call Thanksgiving, and it’s a day where kids in elementary school in America are taught false narratives about our native brothers and sisters,” Shailene said in a video posted on Facebook📹https://goo.gl/ZRVMee

“From the time we’re little kids, we cut out in cardboard paper pictures of pilgrims and feasts and turkeys, and yet none of our children know the truth about not only what happened to Native Americans when Westerners decided to colonize this country, but what is still happening to Native Americans.”
