Jane Fonda Serves Thanksgiving Dinner at Standing Rock

I wish everyone a thoughtful and brave Thanksgiving dinner.


Long-time activist Jane Fonda, and friends, are serving Thanksgiving dinner to Standing Rock water protectors in North Dakota today.

Jane Fonda Is Going to Standing Rock, & It’s a Huge Statement | Romper

“In addition to providing support to the protesters… it’s another way to raise awareness about the protest… but it will also make an important statement about the significance of Thanksgiving… While the myth of a harmonious Thanksgiving between native people and settlers dinner still lingers… the reality is that Thanksgiving is really a reminder that Native Americans have been exploited for centuries…” ~ Alana Romain
