When Lonewolf's father, Black Turtle, died, he was adopted by his uncle, Chief Lone Wolf II, also an adoptee.

At a Bureau of Indian Affairs boarding school he became a famous football fullback and was an active Methodist. He interpreted for Lone Wolf II in Washington, DC, in treaty negotiations with the government. In 1923 he became one of the first Kiowas to be licensed as a preacher for the Methodist church.
