Q'orianka Kilcher Arrested at White House

Actress Q’orianka Kilcher, who played Pocahontas in 2005′s The New World, was arrested Tuesday (June 1) during a political protest in Washington, D.C.

According to the Boston Globe, the 20-year-old latched herself to a fence at the White House while her mother Saskia poured a thick black substance over her.

The mother-daughter duo were protesting a visit by Peru’s president, Alan Garcia. (Q’orianka‘s father is a Peruvian Indian). According to The Globe, Q’orianka “was in Lima last week in support of Peruvian indigenous leader Alberto Pizango, who has been accused of fueling protests against foreign investment in which more than 30 people died.”

If anyone has ever been to DC there are protesters and protests almost daily. Its common for protesters to chain themselves to white house fences. No biggie.

She’s in a new movie called PRINCESS KAIUILANI. It just came out here in Hawaii. Look it up. She’s great!!!! She plays the real life Princess Kaiuilani of Hawaii who died in 1899. She’s really good!!!!!!!!!!!! The movie is set around the time when Hawaii was being annexed….

Much much better than being arrested for DUIs, drugs or assault charges like too many other young celebs.
