Beadwork is widely practiced at Grand Portage, where for generation after generation it has enlivened the lives of Ojibwe people. Many of Marcie's relatives have been beadworkers, and Marcie learned by watching her mother. Today she is a traditional artist specializing in floral-based Ojibwe beadwork, operating her own gallery, Ningii-Ozhitoomin Ojibwe Art Gallery, in Grand Portage. Marcie has been commissioned for exhibitions and instruction and teaches as far away as Arizona and Florida, and as close to home as Ontario and throughout Minnesota.
