Marlon has declared in various interviews to Brazilian magazines that he is of Portuguese, Japanese and Native Brazilian descent. Some English sources, however, state that Marlon is of Portuguese, Japanese and "Indian" descent. Because of the ambiguous meaning of the word Indian in English, this has led to confusion, with people affirming that one or more of his ancestors came from India. In Portuguese such confusion is nonexistent due to a clear difference for both ethnicities being linguistically stabilished since colonial times: índio for an American Indian (or Amerindian, including Native Brazilians); indiano for people and things related to India.
