Henry Barajas



Sean Edgar

Henry Barajas is a Latinx author from Tucson. He is best known for his graphic memoir about his great-grandfather Ramon Jaurigue, titled "La Voz De M.A.Y.O. Tata Rambo." He has contributed to anthologies such as "Where We Live" and "The Good Fight" that benefit mass shooting Route 91 victims and the Southern Poverty Law Center. He writes comic books and does stand-up comedy. Currently, Barajas is the director of operations at Top Cow Production, an American comics publisher, a partner studio of Image Comics.

"La Voz De M.A.Y.O: Tata Rambo" is based on the oral history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and World War II 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 Pascua Yaqui tribe. Thanks to this period of activism, the Yaquis were federally recognized as one of the remaining Native American tribes.
