From Donna Loring:
On December 20th 2011 we did a show with a group called the Portagers. The Portagers were members of Senior College who were lead and taught by Christina Looper Baker. Christina passed away on Jan18th 2013 from complications of a stroke. At that time she was advocating for Wabanaki people. She wanted the historic truth to be taught in our schools and Native voices to be heard. The Portagers have continued on and are still meeting and addressing issues in support of Wabanaki People.
We are re-airing that show today in her memory as a tribute to her tireless advocacy for truth and justice for the Wabanaki people.
This program is dedicated to the memory of my friend and fellow advocate
Christina Looper Baker. I know She would want me to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays !
