WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Park Police have identified a woman arrested for tying herself to a White House fence as actress Q’orianka Kilcher.
Authorities say the 20-year-old Kilcher tied herself to the fence Tuesday and her 41-year-old mother, Saskia, poured a black substance over her.
They told officials they were protesting Tuesday’s visit by Peru’s president, Alan Garcia. Q’orianka Kilcher’s father is a Peruvian Indian.
Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser identified the mother, who is charged with defacing U.S. government property, and daughter, who is charged with disorderly conduct. Schlosser says they were expected to appear in District of Columbia Superior Court.
A call to Kilcher’s publicist was not immediately returned. She played the American Indian Pocahontas in the 2005 film, “The New World.”
