Q’orianka Kilcher first interview after leaving jail on video

'The indigenous movement in Peru is very strong'

Q'orianka Kilcher, Hollywood actor who played Pocahontas in the 2005 film The New World. She is also an outspoken activist on environmental and indigenous issues. This is her first interview after leaving jail, where she and her mum were imprisoned for taking direct action to defend the Amazon

Please please let people know about this.

The indigenous in Peru fight to win!

Q'orianka is an indigenous heroine not just in film but in real life.

And President Obama is a zero for embracing a racist who sees indigenous people as second class citizens and is actively tring to steal their land.
