(Newser) – The actress who starred as Pocahontas in the 2005 film The New World faces charges after tying herself to a fence outside the White House. Q'orianka Kilcher's mother then poured a black substance over her that looked like crude oil, part of a protest over the visit of the Peruvian president, reports AP. Kilcher, 20, whose father is a Peruvian Indian, was charged with disorderly conduct and her mother with defacing government property.
