Director Biography - Robby Romero

“Robby Romero is an articulate artist and advocate for the causes and concerns behind a cultural resistance that is older than this country.” – Danny Schechter, Media Channel

Robby Romero rose to prominence with the global broadcast of his first music video campaign, Is It Too Late and designation as a United Nations Ambassador Of Youth For The Environment. Over the past two decades Robby has used the international languages of music and film to help shift the paradigm and bridge the gap between Indigenous Peoples, human rights and the environment through his non-profit organization, Native Children’s Survival. Robby has spoken and performed and his work has premiered at grass-roots Indigenous gatherings and world events across the globe.

As a musician, Robby’s groundbreaking Native Rock music has taken him from the heart of Indian Country to the main street of the world. His music videos broadcast on MTV and VH1 introduced Native Rock music to the music television generation. Robby has performed with multi-platinum musical artists, including Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana, and Cat Stevens. His journey has included concerts and events with such dignitaries as Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Onondaga Clan Mother Audrey Shenandoah, (1926-2012), His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Former Presidents Nelson Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013), Mikhail Gorbachev, and Shimon Peres, and Onondaga Faith Keeper Chief Oren Lyons.

As a filmmaker, Robby’s innovative music pictures, stereotype-breaking public service announcements, and politicized rockumentary films have catapulted him into an arena of his own making. His directorial film debut Makoce Wakan: Sacred Earth first aired on VH1 in 1993. “Feedback has been more than positive: Congratulations on a very successful show that has generated more viewer calls than any other show to date.” – MTV Networks

Robby’s work has premiered on national and international networks from Sundance Channel to SABC Africa. Robby’s experience in the industry began in his teens. Along the way he has consulted with entertainment and eco-friendly companies on culture, music, product development and marketing, including Sony/BMG Entertainment, Phoenix Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Missy’s Organics, Under The Canopy, Jurlique, and the Aveda Corporation where he created and developed the successful and prosperous “Indigenous” give-back product line, and “Pueblo” southwest jewelry line. Robby’s work has received multiple awards and cultural acknowledgments, from The National Congress Of American Indians and The United Nations to the prestigious Cable Ace-Award and Gold and Platinum Records.

Robby is the founder of Eagle Thunder Enterprises (ETE), an artist-owned and operated independent Indigenous company consisting of four divisions: 1) Film, 2) Music, 3) Publishing, and 4) Production. ETE has reached millions of listeners, viewers and customers from all walks of life through global releases, television broadcasts and live concerts, musical tours and events.

Robby’s rare performances outside of Indian Country have spanned such notable venues as the historic National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., the renowned Komische Opera in Berlin, and the House of Artists in Moscow. Robby has used his voice and presence to stand up internationally for the preservation of the earth and the celebration of all of her children. His efforts, dedication and passion have led Robby to be honored and supported around the world by an array of people, including Indigenous leaders and politicians, fellow artists and activists, celebrities, friends and fans of all walks of life. Robby offers a profound voice of appreciation and action, weaving the timeless wisdom of Indigenous peoples into the unfolding fabric of the future.

“Red Thunder, formed by Romero in 1989, continues to be one of the most popular musical groups known in “Indian Country” and around the world.” – News From Indian Country
