Join author, Kay Johnston, and the family and friends of the late Mazie Baker for the book launch of "The Amazing Mazie Baker: The Squamish Nation's Warrior Elder".
Galvanized by the injustices Mazie Baker saw committed against and within her community—especially against indigenous women, who were denied status and property rights—she began a long career of advocacy. She fought for housing for families in need; she pushed for transparency in local government; she defended ancestral lands; she shone a bright light into the darkest political corners. Her family called her ch’sken: Golden Eagle.
