Over the weekend, actresses Shailene Woodley, Rosario Dawson and Riley Keough joined a group of over 30 Native American youth to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline in front of the White House and in Union Square in NYC.

“We have taken Native American’s land and not honored the treaties that were established,” said Riley Keough. “The living conditions on the reservations are already unacceptable and we cannot allow a pipeline to run directly through the water supply. It would be disgraceful.”

“It is our responsibility to learn the narrative in which Native Americans recall their own history and are walking their own history, and this is a beautiful opportunity for that,” added Shailene Woodley. “Because not only are we saying enough is enough to the fossil-fuel industry but we’re saying enough is enough to silence. That’s why this fight is so profound to me.”
