Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim

Agnes Baker Pilgrim (Federated Tribes of Siletz) is the oldest living member of her tribe. Grandmother Agnes has been honored as a treasure of her people. She brought back the traditional Salmon Ceremony along with other traditions that were soon forgotten. She is the oldest on the Council at age 94 and the spokesperson for them. She has been an outspoken “voice for the voiceless”, speaking out for animals, trees, the water and all beings. They just named a mountain after her in Oregon to honor her work in the world.
