Marcia Fountain-Blacklidge’s womanhood and Native American roots have guided and inspired her throughout her life’s journey. She is an artist, storyteller, and teacher who understands “Her Story” has long been under told. From being accepted into a juried Eiteljorg Museum Native American Market, to being a juror for the Michigan Arts Council, to co-authoring an
award-winning book, to being a professional counselor, to teaching communication at a University, and to taking a variety of art and writing classes; she has walked a life long learning path. Early in her life she read the stories of Holocaust survivors. They have always held a special place in her heart—especially the Women of Ravensbrück Concentration Camp. Her art and storytelling express her version of traditional Native skills.
