Obama’s daughter Malia joins rally against DAPL, stands with Standing Rock Sioux

The former First Daughter was spotted at a Standing Rock solidarity and anti-DAPL event on festival grounds, and Shailene Woodley was there too.

“It was amazing to see Malia, ” Woodley told Democracy Now on Wednesday. “I saw her last night when we did the event with Chairman Dave Archambault. And it was incredible to see her there.”

Woodley commended the 18-year-old for finding her own identity and supporting the cause. “To witness a human being and a woman coming into her own outside of her family and outside of the attachments that this country has on her, but someone who’s willing to participate in democracy because she chooses to, because she recognizes, regardless of her last name, that if she doesn’t participate in democracy, there will be no world for her future children.”

Malia Obama attended a protest at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday in response to President Trump’s plans to revive the Dakota Access pipeline

She was one of approximately 100 people who stood in the heavy snow to show their solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

Later that day, Malia also attended a private event where she met with Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault

Her attendance at the events was revealed by Shailene Woodley, a longtime opponent to the pipeline who said seeing the former first daughter was ‘amazing’

Malia flew into Sundance on Sunday, three days after her family left the White House, and next month begins an internship with producer Harvey Weinstein
