Grandma Aggie had recently returned from Dharamsala, India, where the grandmothers met with the Dalai Lama. Using a satellite link, they simultaneously addressed some 3,000 environmentalists gathered for the annual Bioneers Conference in Marin County, California, where Spencer Beebe was outlining Salmon Nation. If one person represents the heart of Salmon Nation, it is Grandma Aggie, keeper of the Takelma Sacred Salmon Ceremony…

Media Coverage from the Grandmothers’ Visit to the Vatican and to Assisi (07/08).

(1) Indigenous grandmas nearly kicked out of Vatican. ROME – They went to pray. They went to see Pope Benedict XVI on his home turf. They went to ask that he rescind historic church doctrine that played a role in the genocidal onslaught of millions of indigenous people worldwide. For 13 indigenous grandmothers, accomplishing only one of their three goals wouldn’t have been so bad – had they also not been harassed by several Vatican policemen who claimed the women were conducting ”anti-Catholic” demonstrations.

(2) Chief grandma tells it how it is. GRANTS PASS, Oregon – When Agnes Baker Pilgrim, who turns 84 in September, wakes up each day, she said she’s usually grinning. “People would think I’m nuts if they saw me early in the morning,” said Agnes Baker Pilgrim, who’s believed to be the oldest living member of the Takelma Indian Tribe. ”I wake up with a big smile … because I got another day. I give so many thanks because the Creator gave me another day!”
