Marine celebrates Native American culture by dancing in Powwow


Marines come from all walks of life. Watch this US Marine dance in a Powwow at the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma’s Powwow and honors both his heritage and the Marine culture.

US Marine Lance Corporal Marland Trey Kent was honored and respected for his participation in the Iowa Powwow, to include carrying out the American flag in the Grand Entry.

According to the YouTube description, it addresses LCpl Kent’s participation in the event:

When a question arose about his participation in the dance contest as a symbolic honor to a fellow dancer and veteran, traditional dancers and veterans confirmed his participation. A lot of hard work went into the Iowa Powwow to make it good for all involved, and a lot of fine people enjoyed themselves at the dances this year.

  1. Since World War II in the South Pacific, Native Americans have always answered the CALL, So this young Marine was Honored and most likely asked to participate in this event. I have also had to privilege and honor to carry my nation’s colors at the PAWNEE HOMECOMING IN 1972.
