Bill “El Mosco” Ramos, whose spirituality has given him the wisdom and knowledge of his Native American and Chicano ancestry to serve the needs of San Jose’s Chicano youth during the turbulent 60’s through today from his spiritual compound in Ripon Calif, just outside of Modesto.
Driving his yellow school bus, The Mosquitos East Side Action Club transported at-risk youth on field trips and outings while building their self-esteem through long-distance
His work with Dennis Banks, the Lakota activist and leader of AIM, The American
Indian Movement, resulted in Bill becoming the leader of the annual 500 mile spiritual run, beginning in 1980 to this day.
