Actress Shailene Woodley saw her at the event, which was organized in solidarity with the people of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.

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

As previously reported, Malia Obama has  an internship with Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, but it’s unclear whether she attended Sundance as part of her job.
