Gordon was born in Berlin, Germany, where his father, Thomas Gordon, was working.

Gordon is partly of Hualapai Native American descent, and is a member of the Hualapai tribe of Northern Arizona. His family moved back to the U.S. when he was two, and he grew up in Arizona, where he attended Cactus Shadows High School in Cave Creek, Arizona. He attended the LDS church for a while, in the same ward as Twilight author Stephenie Meyer. Aside from acting, Kiowa is also a vocalist, and used to be a member of a progressive metal band called Touché, leaving it to focus on acting and his fans.
In 2009, Gordon played shapeshifter Embry Call in New Moon, based on Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name. Kiowa has said that he was approached one day at church by Stephenie Meyer as she thought he would be perfect for the wolf pack. He then attended an open casting call where he landed the role of Jacob Black’s best friend. He has now finished Eclipse, reprising his role as Embry. Gordon replaced Krys Hyatt (who played Embry in Twilight) in New Moon, Eclipse,and “Breaking Dawn”.When he first started he got famous easily with screaming fans and he got lots of interviews.Gordon also play Brad in “Into The Darkness” with different cast members from different shows.
Gordon has recently relocated from Cave Creek to Los Angeles.

In the DUI incident, he was allegedly found in possession of alcohol while underage and in possession of drug paraphernalia. The arrest warrant was issued for Gordon after he failed to appear following a February 2010 guilty plea in Scottsdale Municipal Court.
