THE CAPTIVATING RITA ROGERS

(January 10, 1937 – June 11, 2012)

Born Ida May Aragon January 10, 1937 in The Land Of Enchantment, Rita Rogers was an exotic and talented dark-eyed beauty. Her courageous spirit, love and positive energy inspired all who came in contact with her.

On June 11, 2012, Rita passed peacefully in the home of her son, Robby Romero encircled with family and prayer.

“My mother began her transition to the Spirit World in ceremony that ended with her journey song; like a mystical shooting star she gracefully left this world right on cue.”   – Robby Romero

Dennis Banks, a co-founder of the American Indian Movement, will be leading The Longest Walk 5 beginning February 13 at La Jolla Shores in San Diego, California. Banks has declared this walk to be a war on drugs. The first Longest Walk was organized in 1978 to bring attention to 11 bills pending in the U.S. Congress. The Native Americans Equal Opportunity Act would have eliminated all treaties between the U.S. government and tribal nations. This bill did not pass largely due to the attention brought by the walk from California to Washington D.C.
