VIDEO: Shailene Woodley Breaks Down While Discussing Thanksgiving: 'I'm Sick of It'

While most of us chowed down on Thanksgiving feasts this year without thinking about how the holiday got started, Shailene Woodley is here to remind us!

On Thursday (November 24), the Divergent actress – who was arrested last month for protesting the Dakota Access pipeline – joined tons more pipeline opponents at a campsite in North Dakota to continue her efforts.

Shailene even live-streamed events from the day and helped serve Thanksgiving dinner to protesters later that night.

“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. “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.”

Watch the emotional video below to hear the rest of what Shailene had to say.
