REMEMBERING DENNIS

Second Annual Dennis Hopper Day Celebration Rolls Out In Style

Bikers galore filled the Ranchos De Taos Plaza

 

Taos NewsDHD Taos News: How would have Dennis Hopper celebrated his 79th birthday? It’s difficult to tell but most likely an Easy Rider Ride would have appealed to him. Over 150 riders and a large crowd of fans participated in the second annual Dennis Hopper Day…

“We wanted to commemorate Dennis and his many contributions to Taos,” said Robby Romero. “We had a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine, which made for a wonderful ride. I believe that the spirit of Dennis Hopper was with us and having a great time. ”

2015 Academy Award Winner Patricia Arquette was among the events special guests. “I got to make two movies with Dennis,” she said. “He made the first truly independent film that was very successful, “Easy Rider” which changed the possibilities for independent cinema. He was an incredible person and I am happy to be here to honor him, in this town, his home, a place that he loved so much.”

The first thing on actor and blues musician Gary Farmer’s mind was getting a drink of water. Farmer and dozens of motorcyclists had just arrived in Ranchos De Taos from a rally in Santa Fe where the first event in Sunday’s (May 17) “Easy Rider Ride” took place.

A screening of “Easy Rider” and costume contest took place at Old Martina’s Hall as part of the commemoration celebration, which also featured music by Robby Romero and Robert Mirabal of Iron Horse. “At any given moment our iconic historical figures are present with us, from Mable Dodge Lujan to Dennis Hopper,” said Mirabal. “It’s good to celebrate the blessings they bestowed on us. They represent the intensity of the Wild West and the freedom of who we are.”

#SummerOfTheRedWillow #ChangeTheName

Iron Horse

Over two decades ago, Robby Romero created several public service announcements for MTV’s Free Your Mind Campaign. These video clips helped to dispel long-held misconceptions about Native Peoples in Popular Culture.

In the Summer of 2014, Robby approached Robert Mirabal to join him in his effort to convince the Town of Taos to change the name of Kit Carson Park, to Red Willow Park in honor of the Tiwa/Red Willow People who have lived at Taos Pueblo for over 2000 years. Robby and Robert envisioned a musical collaboration that would bring the multi-cultural community of Taos together, culminating with a concert (in the park, of course) and Iron Horse was born.

In January of 1994, Free Your Mind won the Industry’s prestigious CableAce Award.

In January of 2015, 21 years later, the campaign continues but this time, it’s here at home, in Taos.

ROBERT MIRABAL’S PUEBLO ROOTS

Robert Mirabal El Cortez

“I grew up pretty hard core,” says Robert, when asked about his early years at Taos Pueblo, “I never expected to do what I have done.”

Robert grew up mainly with his grandparents in the Village at Taos Pueblo and attended school there until he was 12, almost 13. His early years were uneventful and followed the seasonal and daily rounds at the Pueblo. His grandparents were “low key, traditional people,” he says. From them he learned his people’s ways; the language and culture, how to farm the land to grow food, to hunt and perform ancient ceremonies and to provide for the extended family.

“I think Robby and I both had to do our own thing first,” he says, ” sow our wild oats and such, before we were able to make this music we’re making together as Iron Horse.”

ROBBY ROMERO’S MUSICAL ROOTS

TAOS, NM – Robby Romero’s musical roots run deep. He was born with them. You couldn’t make up this story, a life so charmed and filled with a cast of characters most only get to dream about…

I was cast in a passion play, a crazed symphony of poets and players who would later play an important role in the music i was destined to create.” – Robby Romero

His inherited talent goes back to his grandfather, a gifted musician and singer. Both of his parents were musically inclined and left the Apache and Pueblo Territories of New Mexico as soon as they finished High School and were married. They had their sights set on Hollywood. His mother Rita Rogers danced her way into Show Business, appearing in over a dozen Elvis Presley Motion Pictures when Robby was still a child.
