Comanche Nation has talent and this girl proves it. Olivia Komahcheet is a member of the Center for Native American Youth – Youth Ambassador program and is a leader with I Am a Native Drug Free Nation (IAMNDN), a group that promotes healthy living and discourages substance abuse. She recently attended the United National Indian Tribal Youth (UNITY) 39th annual conference in Washington D.C. UNITY is the nation’s oldest and largest Native American and Alaska Native youth organization.

At the conference, attendees were invited to participate in a talent show. Watch as Olivia covers rock band Tool's “Right in Two” song.

Wow, playing all the instruments too! Way to go Olivia. Sounds like everyone in the room enjoyed it!

A little bit more about Olivia from her bio: Starting at the age of 5, Olivia began playing the home piano, learning songs she liked by ear, but it wasn’t until the 3rd grade when she began playing her first instrument, the viola, on a regular basis. Playing consistently for 7 years, she then started picking up other instruments such as cello, violin, acoustic guitar, drums, and Native American flute, and learning them with ease. Having experience performing with her father over the years, Olivia has recently been given the opportunities to perform in front of much larger audiences such as Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada this past March. She sees this as just the beginning of her journey to making her long awaited dream finally come true.

Definitely keep this girl on your radar as I know we'll be hearing more from her in the future!
