He was noted as one of few Apache actors working in the motion picture industry by contemporaneous reporters, though according to census records, it appears he was of mestizo or indigenous Mexican ancestry.
Lalo was born in Pima, Arizona. His parents were named Jesus Encinas and Jacinta Bustamante; both hailed from Mexico. Eventually he went to Hollywood and began working as an actor. He was noted for his tall stature, as he reportedly was six feet, four inches tall, and weighted 280 pounds.
