Arroyos passed away a month ago; may he rest in peace.

“Ramon Arroyos, a longtime Chicano activist whose work helped improve the presence of Mexican-Americans in the media in West Texas, died Sunday after a long fight with cancer, friends said. He was 62.

Arroyos was prominent during the Chicano Movement in El Paso in the 1970s, and in later years became a spiritual leader of Teokalli Tlauizkalpantekutli Ketzal-koatl, a back-to-roots church seeking to connect with Aztec culture.

“The whole civil-rights movement was an awakening for us. People began to realize they could do something and bring about change,” Arroyos told the El Paso Times in 2010. Information on funeral services is pending.”
