Agnes Baker Pilgrim, the eldest member and the public face of southern Oregon’s Takelma tribe, has died in Grants Pass at the age 95.

She recently was awarded a presidential medal from Southern Oregon University.

The university says Pilgrim died as doctors tried to repair a brain aneurysm.

Pilgrim, known as “Grandma Aggie,” was a vocal lifelong advocate for tribal and women’s rights and environmental causes. Her likeness is featured in a statue in downtown Ashland.
