Q’orianka Kilcher, 20, chained herself to the White House perimeter fence on Tuesday (01Jun10) to protest a state visit by Peru’s President Alan Garcia, who has announced plans to sell large areas of indigenous land to oil companies and other foreign investors.

Kilcher’s father is a Peruvian Indian.

Reports suggest the actress’ mother was also involved in the protest; she covered her daughter in black paint.
