    Pat Vegas of Redbone: Legendary Yaqui, Shoshone and Aztec Musician

    in Religion

    "In a time machine I would like to go back to the 70’s when music was real music."


    Pat Vegas: Redbone Movement


    Redbone is a Native American/Mexican American rock group that was most active in the 1970s. Originally from Coalinga, California, brothers Patrick (bass and vocals) and Candido "Lolly" Vasquez (guitar and vocals) moved to Los Angeles in 1969 to form the group Redbone. The name Redbone itself is a joking reference to a Cajun term for a mixed-race person ("half-breed"), the band's members being of mixed blood ancestry. The band referenced Cajun and New Orleans culture many times in their lyrics and performing style.


    Pat and Lolly, who were a mixture of Yaqui, Shoshone and Mexican heritage, had previously performed and recorded under the stage surname Vegas, in part to downplay the Latin American association of their birth surname, Vasquez. According to Pat Vegas, it was Jimi Hendrix - himself part Native American - who talked the musicians into forming an all-Native American rock group, and they signed as the band "Redbone" to Epic Records in 1969. The band then consisted of Pat Vegas, Lolly Vegas, Peter DePoe and Robert Anthony Avila, a Yaqui-Chicano, better known by his stage name Tony Bellamy. Their debut album Redbone was released in 1970.


    Redbone played primarily rock music with R&B, Cajun, Jazz, tribal, and Latin roots. Their first commercial success came with the single "Maggie" and two other hit singles followed - "The Witch Queen of New Orleans" and "Come and Get Your Love". In 1973, Redbone released the politically oriented "We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee", recalling the massacre of Lakota Sioux Indians by the Seventh Cavalry in 1890.

    My Road to the Sundance: The Late Manny Twofeathers--Aztec/Yaqui

    in Religion

    The Late Manny Twofeathers, Aztec and Yaqui, was born in Arizona. He was largely influenced by the southwest legends and native spirituality born of his ancestry. He has authored 2 hugely successful books: "My Road to the Sundance" (published by Hyperion and 2002 edition by Wo-Pila Publishing) and "Stone People Medicine" (published by Wo-Pila Publishing and New World Library) - both lean toward native spirituality, and have been published in foreign languages. Twofeathers is a spiritual elder and counselor. He travels extensively performing spiritual ceremonies, giving lectures and workshops throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.


    A native of South Central Arizona of Aztec descent, and being reared in the old ways, Manny has many gifts - both spiritual and creative. As a Sundancer and counselor, his reputation and popularity is growing to such a degree that demands are being made for him to appear all over the world giving lectures and workshops.


    As an author Manny has written several books. His newest release, and first fiction story, "Kokopelli's Dream…the Emergence of a Legend" is being published in May, 2004. His own story, "My Road To The Sundance", enjoyed publishing success. In January 1995, he self published this book, and 5 months later, Disney's Hyperion Publishing purchased the rights to re-release it in hardcover for July, 1996.


    The Sundance book has been translated into German and Italian editions, and a third REVISED edition is now available. In 1997, he released another self-published book, called "Stone People Medicine," it has sold 11,000 copies. It has been released in Italian, and is now re-released by New World Library, as a book boxed set with Stone Cards included. The common thread with all of Manny's written material, is the Native American spiritual theme.
