La Voz De M.A.Y.O. #2 Cover by Eva Cabrera *Not Final Cover

Last year I Kickstarted a comic book biography about great-grandfather, Ramon Jaurigue, and his work with the organization he co-founded: Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others. He and M.A.Y.O. helped the Yaquis and the community around them stop the City of Tucson from displacing the native people from their land, and help establish their tribal recognition with the help of Congressman Morris K. Udall. I worked with J. Gonzo, Claire Napier, and Bernardo Brice to help make this possible. I couldn't have done it without them.

The support was overwhelming. We received help from all over the world. It was a gratifying experience and the question on everyone's minds after reading the last page was "what happens next?" We're back to publish the second chapter of La Voz De M.A.Y.O. This will be a full color, 32-page comic book. 

The official story

 La Voz De M.A.Y.O. is the true story of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the local Pascua Yaqui tribe. Largely due to Ramon’s activism, both in M.A.Y.O. in and with Model Cities Program, Yaqui were successfully integrated into the expanding metropolis of Tucson: families bought property, roads and sidewalks were built, and sewage systems installed. Ramon and his colleagues even founded a night school to help adults learn English and established the region’s first low-cost clinic to offer birth control. 

Utilizing newspaper clippings, interviews with surviving MAYO members, and Ramon’s authored articles, La Voz De M.A.Y.O. dramatizes the remarkable life and achievements of my great-grandfather—and in so doing, tells the story not just of a single man, but of a family, a tribe, a nation.

Risks and challenges

La Voz De MAYO is not only about my family's history, but, this is the history of a tribe of people and my hometown: Tucson, AZ. My graphic memoir is about people of color; specifically, Native Americans and Mexican Americans that are finally getting documented in the history books. It's important to me to publish something that will inform and empower people that look like to look like me.
