Highly devoted to his Choctaw heritage, Lorenzo competed in different competitions in Oklahoma City for the Choctaw language. After moving to Stigler, Oklahoma, Lorenzo got more actively involved in his tribe after joining a Youth Advisory Board group within the Choctaw Nation. He devoted much of his time to giving back to his community and tribe and served as President over the youth group for 5 years. After graduating high school, Lorenzo got the opportunity to sit with President Obama at a round-table discussion on the President’s trip to Oklahoma in July 2015. Discussing his views with the President on how to create tribal unity and revitalizing tribes, as well as making tribal resources more available outside of tribal districts, Lorenzo felt empowered to do more and make a difference, not only within his tribe, but other tribes across Oklahoma and the United States as well. Presented with a position at ikanatech, Lorenzo hopes to fulfill his goal and help other tribal members achieve their goals as well and show others that tribes make a difference and make an impact.
