In his career, Marshall has been a teacher at the high school and college levels, an educational and health programs administrator for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, a craftsman of primitive Lakota bows and arrows, a historian and a writer.

He helped form a non-profit advocacy group for Native American students and parents, develop and implement Native American studies curriculum and spearhead the planning and design phase for a hospital. In addition to all of these activities, Marshall was a founding and charter board member of Sinte Gleska University.

However, as a writer, he is professionally doing what he enjoys the most.

Marshall has published ten books and has been a contributing writer to four other publications. All of his work has won critical acclaim.

His fifth book, The Lakota Way: Stories and Lessons for Living, was a finalist in the spiritual category for the prestigious “Books for a Better Life Award” from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of New York. It was also a finalist in the creative non-fiction category for the “Pen Center USA” award. The Lakota Way received excellent reviews from “Publishers Weekly,” “Kirkus Reviews” and The Library Journal.

Writing has also led Marshall into the realm of public speaking. He has spoken to a variety of audiences across this country and has also lectured in France, Sweden and Siberia. In addition, he teaches management seminars as well as a presents workshops and seminars based on his books.

Marshall has also written several screenplays. One was selected by the Sundance Institute for its Native Screenwriters Workshop at UCLA in the summer of 2000.

He also has several notable television connections and appearances. He appeared in several episodes of The Real West, a syndicated program on the “The History Channel” as well as an on-screen role in the television 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 is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. He and his wife Connie have a blended family of nine.
