The struggle has been real the last several months. In what felt like an instant, our community shifted as if on a tectonic plate. Schools, shops, restaurants and galleries were shuttered along roadways devoid of traffic, tourists or any signs typical of our bustling community. more
Our senior care facilities here in Taos have had to make lightning-fast adjustments over the past three or four months. They had established a routine of caring for the physical and emotional needs of their residents, providing entertainment, social and cultural enrichment and more. Then suddenly they were thrust into the role of protecting the residents, calming fears and taking every possible precaution against infection. more
A continuous line of cars snakes through the parking lot to the parish hall doors of St. James Episcopal Church, on Camino de Santiago. It's Thursday, distribution day for the church's food pantry. Inside the hall, one group of volunteers fills boxes with peanut butter, bananas, beans, soup, a can of tomato paste and a dessert item. Then another group takes the boxes outside where two final items, onions and eggs, are added before they're handed off to their recipients. more
Jiāyóu! That was the shout from the windows of high-rise apartment buildings in Wuhan, China, during the lockdown that started them all. Literally, it means "add oil." In other words, "Gas it up!" Usually it's translated as "Keep up the fight!" more
For millennia, Taos Pueblo has faced its enemies with the kind of respect worthy of Camelot's Round Table. From the age of discovery to the Spanish flu, Taos Pueblo has endured. We've battled the Catholic Church for a right to believe in ourselves; we've fought back against a cunning conqueror, who would see our mountainous cathedral mowed down to grazing lands, and won. more
As the COVID-19 pandemic swept through our lives there were, indeed, those who became the heroes of our strange new world: our health care workers and first responders. more

"I was sitting in a prison, looking at the civil rights and the anti-war movement passing us by. I wanted to get out so bad to be a part of this movement. It was a new feeling out there, of a different kind of patriotism. Patriotism to human rights, to life instead of death. I wanted to be part of it. Just going to the police department en masse, there was like 200 of us. Just two weeks before that, we were scared to go by ourselves. We found strength in 200 of us, all Indian people, who had been beaten, mugged, arrested. Now here we were, we were going back to that same police department that arrested us and we were demanding action. It felt good to finally sense that there was power in unity, power in numbers." - Dennis Banks, American Indian Movement co-founder more

“The United States was founded on the murder, dislocation and genocide of the indigenous people of this land. These violent colonizers then became internationally wealthy on the abduction, enslavement, lynching and torture of African people. For the last 400 years, the U.S. has continued to imprison, oppress, abuse and murder black and brown people daily. more

On Wednesday (June 3) just after 2 p.m. hundreds of protestors lay down in the street and stopped traffic for nearly nine minutes at the intersection of U.S. Highway 64 and State Road 68. The demonstration was the second of the week, protesting for the Black Lives Matter cause and against the brutal police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. Both protests were spearheaded by local Taoseña Salman Lee. more
Having spent a great part of my youth in protests and demonstrations, from Cape Town, South Africa, to Tompkins Square in New York City, I am, sadly, only too familiar with the dynamic that plays out on angry streets during hot, summer days. When the oppressed rise up, things can get dangerous. Especially when bureaucracy and police are involved. A bruised and dislocated shoulder that still acts up 40 some years later reminds me of the brute force with which I was literally manhandled as a teenager protesting outside St. George's Cathedral, in Cape Town. more

It was a strange end to a very strange school year, with kids missing out on all the usual in-person festivities like graduations, field trips, field days and yearbook signings. We applaud all the creative efforts of schools to re-create these opportunities for students - from ice-cream Zoom parties to balloon-decorated drive-bys. Taos High did a great job of commemorating the class of 2020 and every school made sure students got to celebrate and say goodbye to classmates before heading off into a summer of unknowns. more
