  • Robideau, Robert: Passes on in Barcelona art studio

    Barcelona, Spain

    News From Indian Country has received word via email from various friends and the widow of Robert Eugene Robideau, Pilar Campo Robideau of his passing on the evening of February 16th.

    According to the information in the emails and Myspace, Robideau suffered a seizure while working in his painting studio at the American Indian Movement Museum he helped create with his wife in Barcelona.

    Robideau was a long time member of the Autonomous Chapters of the American Indian Movement, and was one of two people acquitted at trial in 1977 of shooting to death two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation on June 26th, 1975.

    Re: Passing of Robert Robideau

    Good Day Everyone,

    It has come to my attention of a couple of changes to the account set up for donations; the correct information is located below. Arrangements have been made to bring Robert back to the United States and plans are in the works in regard to services, we should know a definite date early next week, if not sooner. Friends and family of Bob are all welcome to attend the services, we will have TWO (2) services; the initial services are planned to take place in Portland, Oregon, some time within the next couple of weeks. Exact date and location will be announced soon. For those who cannot make it to Portland, there are plans for services to take place after Portland, in New Mexico, just outside of Albuquerque in Edgewood.

    As with the passing of a loved one, an account has been set up to assist the family with the financial responsibilities of laying Bob to rest. If you would like to help, please send donations to:

    In the benefit of Robert Robideau
    US Bank

    *You can send it to any US Bank in the United States, via mail or transfer, or walk-in.

    I truly apologize for any confusion, and of course your positive thoughts, prayers and assistance are greatly appreciated during this time.

    On behalf of The Robideau Family, Thank you!
