Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim
I have a post at Trickster Northwest on Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim's visit to Eugene yesterday. Grandmother Aggie is a member of the Grandmothers Council; a group of indigenous women who visit the world to share their stories and encourage women in their work with children and . . . the world.
(I feel I should say something here about this post and it appearing on a blog about "esoterica." There should not be the understanding that Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim, Native American, or indigenous peoples are "esoteric," or are to be thought of as quaint or in a trivializing or exploitive way.)
