Marshall was born on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. His first language is Lakota. He can craft a Lakota bow in the traditional style, has helped found a hospital and a university, and makes his home on the Northern Plains with his wife. Also, he helped in the cause to put wolves back into Yellowstone National Park.


Joseph Marshall III has several notable television connections and appearances. He appeared in several episodes of The Real West as well as the mini-series Return to Lonesome Dove. His most recent role was playing the eldest Loved by the Buffalo in the Turner Network Television mini-series Into the West.


Marshall writes mainly historical fiction about events in Lakota history. His work has been criticized as lacking literary complexity and relying too heavily on oral tradition, but it is also praised for its intimate presentation of Lakota culture.

In 2008, his book, The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn won the PEN/Beyond Margins Arts.
