By Washington Post editors

The 20-year-old woman who chained herself to the fence in front of the White House on Tuesday is actress Q'orianka Kilcher, NBC 4 reports.

Kilcher, who starred as Pocahontas in the 2005 movie "The New World," was charged with disorderly conduct. Her mother, who poured a black liquid on her in the protest, was charged with defacing government property.

Secret Service spokesman Max Milien said the women were protesting what they said was the Peruvian government’s sale of land to oil companies. President Obama was meeting in the White House at the time with Alan Garcia, the president of Peru.

She and her mother sound like real nut jobs. Hopefully, her acting career is over.

Yes, I too hope her career is over due to her speaking her mind. How dare she stand up in a nonviolent manner and voice her opinion!

I'm glad. This lady goes to Peru just to protest against the government and threat to make bad propaganda.
Koriana: 1) you are not above the law.
2) Why don't you start fixing your problems at home? (your dad!!) then go and pretend that you have interests with indigenous people of other countries.
