Yesterday, I spoke on the phone with Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim, 87 years old, the oldest living member of the Takelma Tribe from Southern Oregon and chairperson of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. She is a lifelong activist for environmental causes. Her main cause is water rights and water ecology. She travels constantly and has successfully battled cancer and won. She sends us her support.

Her message:

Keep Strong, Keep Focused, don't deal with anger, don't let people upset you. Your behavior is being watched by people all over the world. Set a good example, walk the path of non-violence and stick to that path. We need to fight for the bees, the animal kingdom, the water, the air. It is not adults who own the world but it is the children, we need to preserve it for the 7 generations to follow us. Be diligent. All races need to come together. I am praying to the creator to give you courage to continue on in the days and weeks ahead.
