About the Artist

A Ellie Mitchell (Eagle Clan) is an enrolled member of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan. One of her earliest memories is of her mother selling dreamcatchers and beaded earrings at a powwow in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ellie began learning beadwork from her mother at the age of seven. By nine, she was selling Christmas-themed art to her classmates and teachers. Like many other Anishinaabeg, Ellie’s family has adopted European holidays and are especially fond of Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Christmas. Why? Those holidays involve giving away food, dressing up, and feasting. Like many other aspects of daily life, from cars, to computers, to iron kettles, non-native holidays have been indigenized to fit into the cultures of Anishinaabewaki.

Ellie attended the Saginaw Chippewa Academy for elementary and middle school, where she received instruction from numerous Anishinaabe artists. She has a Bachelor of Arts in linguistics from Michigan State University and is working on a Master of Arts in the humanities from Central Michigan University. Ellie is the owner of Bead & Powwow Supply.
