Academy Award Winner Jane Fonda To Serve A Thanksgiving Meal To Standing Rock Protesters

Jane Fonda will be joining a group of 50 delegates this week to serve a Thanksgiving feast to Standing Rock activists.

A long-time advocate of American Indigenous peoples’ rights, the two-time Academy Award winner will accompany a group of 50 chefs, activists and volunteers from across the United States to feed a total of 500 people protesting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Oceti Sakowin camp near Cannon Ball, North Dakota.

In addition to serving the Wopila Feast as a way to say thank you to the water protectors fighting for the land of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe under a reported 1851 treaty, the 78-year-old actress will also offer five butchered Bison and four Mongolian yurts to the camp, reports Native News Online.

Similarly, actress Shailene Woodley has been vocal about her protest of the DAPL. After getting arrested back in October during a peaceful protest, the 25-year-old “Divergent” actress was brought to tears speaking about the cause at the 26th annual Environmental Media Association Awards.
