Marcia Stier lines up for University of Alaska Southeast graduation ceremonies Sunday at Centennial Hall. Stier was awarded her certificate of completion in Northwest Coast art. She was wearing a Raven's Tail robe called "Hands Across Time,"
which she helped weave and which is in the Alaska State Museum collection.
