Nocona is a Comanche Indian from Lawton Oklahoma. He is the great-great grandson of Chief Quanah Parker and his father is the former chief of the Comanche tribe. He has traveled throughout his life and was given the opportunity to see and experience much of the country and all the different kinds of people. He has always been around art as he comes from a family of artists of many types. He felt he had no choice but to pursue art. It was in his blood.

He decided to move to New Mexico, where he attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe. He continues to reside in Santa Fe today.
