Meet Marshal… After four years of extensive training, at the age of 16, Marshal was accepted under Cherokee Tribal status as a Holy Man.
In the book, Marshal states, “Being incarcerated changed my life. Eventually, I realized what I had been missing. Family and friends had been there for me, but I did not see them. I had taken everything and everyone for granted, until I lost them.”
Falsely accused, he is serving his 25th year in prison on a 50 year sentence. Since 2002, he has been a member and spiritual leader in the prison’s Native American Circle.
