“Dennis Hopper Day Descends On Taos New Mexico”

New York Times Magazine

Dennis Hopper Day was first proclaimed by the 30th Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson on May 17th in 2010. In 2014 Taos Pueblo recognized May 17th as Dennis Hopper Day annually. A proclamation of the people of Taos County and of the Town of Taos proclaimed May 17th to be hereto annually known as, Dennis Hopper Day and designated a street after the counter-culture icon.

“It is fitting and an honor that the State of New Mexico extends appropriate recognition and deep appreciation to Dennis Hopper, a cultural icon and friend to many, for his artistic and cultural contributions to our State and to the entire world.”


“We the Red Willow People of the Taos Valley recognize May 17th 2014 as Dennis Hopper Day.  Our forefathers let Dennis shoot his film, Easy Rider, in 1968 and he became friends with our Elders and People of the Pueblo. On May 17th, we will recognize Dennis Hopper Day Annually.”

Taos Pueblo Governor, Clyde M. Romero

“Taos has a rich history of attracting accomplished artisans of all talents, and Dennis Hopper is one of the most exceptional.  Our Town is proud to host this important and timely recognition of such a distinguished award-winning artist, actor, director, writer, philanthropist, and art collector who called Taos ‘home.’”

Taos Mayor, Dan Barrone.

“The 1st Annual Dennis Hopper Day was celebrated on Saturday, May 17, 2014 with events throughout the day at locations from Ranchos de Taos to the Gorge Bridge and the Taos Pueblo, concluding at the Historic Taos Plaza.  Taos Pueblo and State and local dignitaries, event producer Robby Romero, Dean Stockwell and Hopper family members, friends and special guests were in attendance.”
