Hello, my name is Shandiin Biiliilitso. I am from the Navajo Nation, my family comes from Blue
steel mountain, Wide ruins Arizona. My parents are Susie Jensen and Jorge Lechuga. My maternal
grandparents are the late Thurston Jensen and Nona Yellowhorse. My paternal grandparents are the
late Mary Parra and George Lechuga. I am the great granddaughter of Joe Yellowhorse.

I was raised in the Los Angeles area and grew up in the Native Community in Los Angeles. My family
powwow dances and sings, and I’m grateful for the opportunities this has given me throughout the
years. One of my passions is cultural preservation, and passing along teachings to my children,
nieces, nephews, and new generation.

Giving back to the community has been a great joy and opportunity. I am pleased to serve as the
Community Health Worker Supervisor, and address community needs.
