Dear Relatives, Community and Friends of the Four Directions,
We are saddened to share the news that our eldest beautiful beloved sister, Grandmother Agnes Taowhywee (Morning Star) Baker Pilgrim made her journey home to the Spirit World on November 27, 2019 at 8:49 am, she was 95 years old. Her family was at her bedside, as she smiled and took her last breath.
On September 11, 1924 she was born in Logsden, Oregon on a tribal allotment at the headwaters of the Siletz River. She came from the bloodline of Chief George Harney of the Siletz Tribe and her parents were Eveline Lydia Harney Baker and George Wentworth Baker. Her mother’s tribal lineage is Takelma of the Siletz Confederated Tribe and her father is Coos Tribe, both are Oregon coastal tribes.
Grandmother Aggie, was a dedicated warrior grandmother, for many causes. She was a “voice for the voiceless” – animals, plants, and the water. She had many major accomplishments in the efforts and causes she pursued. To name a few, she led the successful removal and clean up of all the dams on the Rogue River by 2012 and in 1994 she revived the Siletz tribal sacred Salmon Ceremony. Her community work included serving as an advisor to a medical doctor’s association and creating opportunities for the young tribal members to learn about their culture.
We the Grandmothers and all who have had the honor of sharing a moment in the life walk of Grandmother Agnes cherish, honor and hold high respect for her life and now offer prayers of gratitude and for her good journey to her place in the Spirit World.
Blessings and prayers to Nadine Martin, her daughter and faithful assistant throughout the years of her travels with the Grandmothers as well as her five generations of grandchildren that she loved so dearly.
Please offer prayers with us for her good journey.
Love and Light,
"As women ...it is imperative that we do not allow ourselves to go a moment without realizing that we are part of the sacred elements." Grootmoeder Flordemayo
