Dulce Base Conference Ends With More Questions Than Answers
DULCE, NEW MEXICO – Close to 120 people showed up for the first “underground base” conference ever to be held in Dulce, New Mexico on Sunday, March 29.
The event made a rather tumultuous start at the Best Western Jicarilla Inn at 10 a.m.
By that time the entire bar lounge area began to be filled beyond capacity.
And by the time the first speaker (former Dulce ranch owner, Edmund Gomez) began his presentation, many people had to stand and wait in the adjacent restaurant area.
It was then that the Fire Department issued a warning saying that the conference must immediately be moved elsewhere.
Halfway through the speaker’s fascinating presentation, the Fire Department issued a stern second warning saying that the number of people inside the conference room far exceeded its capacity.
Panic then began to be felt by the event’s organizer, Norio Hayakawa of Rio Rancho.
Hotel employees frantically made phone calls to find out if there were any other locations available for the conference to go on.
It was then that Hoyt Velarde, former Dulce police officer and head of Public Safety Department, suggested to Hayakawa that the conference be moved to a civic hall inside a small shopping center across the street from the hotel.
With Velarde’s swift assistance in making the arrangement, and after a short intermission, the entire Dulce Base: Fact or Fiction? conference and public forum finally resumed and continued the rest of the day at the new location.
As an interesting side note, on Sunday morning when it was still dark outside, many guests at the Best Western Jicarilla Inn were awakened shortly before 6 a.m. by a thunderous roar of blades of helicopters above. Local residents nearby reported that there was a rare low flight of two military helicopters above Dulce.
In the afternoon session of the conference, two local residents also testified that they witnessed the military helicopters circling above Dulce and that they passed slowly above the hotel. They told Hayakawa that there are occasional appearances of military helicopters over the town but the flights were never as low as what they saw early Sunday morning.
As organizer and moderator of this conference, Hayakawa several times alluded to an allegation that the government, beginning in the early 1970s and lasting till the early 1980s, may have conducted clandestine operations in the area involving experiments with bovine diseases, anthrax and other substances as part of biological warfare research.
He also alluded to another allegation that there may also have been some illegal dumping or storage of toxic chemicals and other bio-hazardous materials in the nearby areas.
Hayakawa stated that he tends to support a theory that the government may have purposefully created some ‘convenient’ cover stories (underground alien base concept) to conceal those clandestine activities and may even have staged a series of fake ‘UFO-type’ incidents in the area, utilizing high tech equipment such as holographic projection devices.
However he also stated that he cannot deny any possibility that there may indeed be some unknown interdimensional phenomenon in the area which happens to be filled with fascinating cultural and spiritual beliefs of the Jicarilla Apache nation.
The speakers at the conference and their main points expressed were as follows:
Edmund Gomez, spokesman for the entire Gomez family who owned a large ranch in Dulce said that their ranch lost more than 17 cows during the height of cattle mutilations incidents and experienced substantial financial loss over the years. Gomez stated that gas masks were found near the mutilation sites and that specific cows were each tracked with phosphorescent markings a few days before the mutilations actually took place. He is convinced that this was done by the government and that no aliens were involved. He asserted that the government was conducting some type of germ warfare experiments. He concluded by stating that there is definitely a governmental underground facility there.
Hoyt Velarde, former Dulce police officer and head of Public Safety Department asserted that he has not located the base yet but it is an undeniable fact that there have been (and still are) many UFO sightings in the area. Velarde even suggested that he is willing to organize an escorted group expedition soon for the public to the top of the Archuleta Mesa if such a request is made in earnest. He surprised the attendees also by saying that another conference on this topic could even be held next time in the conference hall of the Police Department there. Hayakawa said that he may consider this offer.
Gabe Valdez, former New Mexico state patrol officer in charge of the Dulce area stated that he investigated numerous cattle mutilation cases in the Dulce area from the mid 1970s to the early 1980s. He declared that this has nothing to do with aliens but that there is something there that is too sensitive for discussion and refused to further divulge what that was.
Christopher O’ Brien, researcher of paranormal activities in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado asserted that Dulce may be a diversion for what is more importantly taking place in the San Luis Valley just north of northern New Mexico.
Dr.. Michael E. Salla, initiator of “exopolitics” and author of a book entitled EXPOSING U.S. GOVERNMENT POLICIES ON EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE expressed his belief that there is a joint US/alien underground bio-lab beneath the Archuleta Mesa and that this must be addressed as a serious human rights abuse issue.
Greg Bishop, author of PROJECT BETA, a book in which he describes in detail his investigations of the claims of an Albuquerque scientist by the name of Paul Bennewitz, said that Bennewitz was the initial source behind the rumors of the underground base in Dulce. Bishop asserted that Bennewitz was side tracked by an unofficial disinformation campaign to get him to look away from evidence of sensitive military projects going on in 1979 inside Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque. However, Bishop surprised everyone when he said at the end that he is now beginning to doubt his initial doubt about Dulce and concluded that there could indeed be something there.
Gabe Julian, former Dulce police officer who worked under the late Raleigh Tafoya, former Dulce Police Chief described his encounters with three metallic, oval-shaped object hovering at a tree-top level at a ranch in Dulce. He described how he was dispatched to the ranch house of a woman who claimed that small people with strange boxes emitting light were harassing her. Initially skeptical of what his radio dispatcher told him, he drove over to the area and was shaken up when he witnessed those hovering objects there.
Dennis Balthaser, a well-known UFO researcher from Roswell, New Mexico expressed his conviction that there is a US/alien joint biological laboratory and base under the Archuleta Mesa.
Keith Ealy, a researcher with a fascinating interpretation of Dulce as being a space time portal for interdimensionals amazed the audience with his close-up satellite imagery of Dulce Elementary School building. He told the audience that the contours of the parking lot resemble an ancient stone scupture in Bolivia. He concluded that the Dulce area is filled with interdimentional phenomenon, a topic similarly shared by world famous researchers, Dr. Jacques Vallee and John Keel.
Here is an excellent report about the Dulce Base conference and its conclusion:
Also, the Albuquerque Journal had a front page story today (March 30) about the conference. The headline which appeared at the bottom of the front page was “UFO Hunters Debate Underground Base”. And on page 3 the headline for the continuing story was: “Secret Alien Base in N.M.?”
I watched the Dulce Base episode of UFO Hunters earlier.
People out there can believe there is a base under Archuleta Mesa or not, but it can’t be denied that some really weird stuff goes on around Dulce and in the 4 corners area in general.
UFO sightings, cattle mutilations, skinwalkers and other fortean occurrences seem to happen far more often than in other areas. I don’t think it is coincidence that Mesa Verde and many other ancient ruins are also in that area. Right in the town of Aztec, where a UFO crash is said to have taken place, are ancient native American ruins that are at least 800 years old. Really there is a huge concentration of ancient ruins in that area.
I am not going to pretend to know why the fortean and ancient ruins are connected, but I am sure that they are.
My previously mentioned experiment using night mode and IR lens during the day has been sadly disappointing.
My videos picked up nothing strange.
Now, I know that there are often strange objects flying around in chemtrails because I have seen them with my naked eyes, but at this point it has become obvious to me that they are not always there. When they are there, I think it is likely that they are just as easy to see with your eyes as they are with using the IR/nightmode method.
Of course, I haven’t totally given up on this experiment and I will continue on when I am able because it is possible that these objects, even when visible, may film better using this mode. I have had a rather hard time filming them in the past.
I was flipping through Sunset Magazine and came across a new alien tourism ad! I haven’t seen one of these in a while and didn’t know if they were still using the alien as the tourism mascot, but they are! I guess with vacation season coming up they will be rolling out more new ones and I will be keeping my eye out for them. BTW, the alien is hanging out at Ojo Caliente natural hot springs, which happens to be one of my favorite places.
I have updated the Dulce conference page with the latest from Norio. Just a little over a week away now. Sadly, I won’t be there. Not that sad because my 6 year old niece Mina will be visiting from Chicago and I haven’t seen her in near 2 years, so I am really looking forward to that!
RIO RANCHO, NEW MEXICO – Norio Hayakawa is a resident of Rio Rancho who believes that wild rumors may not always bring a bad name to a community or hurt it. Sometimes they bring curiosity seekers, and even tourism may flourish. Take, for example, the city of Roswell. And when it comes to the subject of UFOs, Hayakawa believes that there is a much more interesting area in New Mexico than Roswell.
According to Hayakawa, Dulce, New Mexico, a sleepy little town of less than 4000 (inhabited by the Jicarilla Apache nation), has attracted quite a number of UFO and conspiracy buffs ever since rumors surfaced in the mid-80s that a U.S./alien joint biological laboratory and base exists a mile under the town’s Archuleta Mesa. “This rumor has become so well known among UFO buffs around the world that anyone doing a Yahoo or Google search on Dulce, New Mexico would find the bulk of over 300,000 search results related to the alleged underground base,” Hayakawa said.

A firefighter who was with the Roswell Fire Department in 1947 has confirmed that the mysterious crash in the New Mexico desert that Summer was in fact of an unearthly craft!
The firefighter, now age 90, related stunning information to this author in a lengthy interview conducted recently. Respected Roswell author Kevin Randle also talked with the involved fireman to confirm the details of his story.
Some time ago I located the son of Rue Chrisman. Rue was the Fire Chief for the Roswell Fire Department in 1947, passing in 1981 at age 98. Chrisman’s son explained to me that he knew that the town’s Fire Department was somehow involved in the crash event. But the son was sparse in his conversation, not really wishing to elaborate. When pressed, the son said, “It did happen. There was a big coverup. The crash was real.” I asked him how he knew of this, he paused and said, “I knew too many who knew.”
I then asked him if any Roswell Firemen from 1947 are still alive. He replied that there was still “one left.” He only mentioned the surviving fireman’s surname as “Smith” and that one of his family members attends the same church as the involved fireman. Working with Kevin Randle, we identified and located the elderly gentleman and sought his testimony.

WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M. (AP) – NASA engineers have completed work on a 92-acre launch complex that will serve as the test site for abort flight tests of the Orion crew exploration vehicle.
That is the spacecraft that is planned to take astronauts back to the moon.
The complex at White Sands Missile Range will allow NASA to test the system that will pull the vehicle’s crew to safety if there’s an emergency on the launch pad or during the opening minutes of flight.
Personnel from the missile range will provide support services, including logistics, infrastructure, data collection, operations and management during each simulated launch. The site includes a launch pad, ground support equipment and an assembly building.
