At a time when Native Americans no longer rule the landscape, Agnes Baker Pilgrim is a towering presence.
Agnes, who also goes by Taowhywee, is the oldest surviving Takelma, at age 91.
She was already highly in demand before an Ashland publisher put out Grandma Says: "Wake Up, World!" The Wisdom, Wit, Advice and Stories of Grandma Aggie, in both printed and audio forms.
Agnes visits The Exchange for the first time in several years to talk about her life and dreams.
