Alice Williams Seeks to Bring Healing to Women Through QuiltingAlice Olsen Williams was born in Trout Lake, on her Anishinaabe grandparents’ winter grounds, 150 miles north of Kenora, the Homeland of her mother's people from time before memory. She received her teaching certificate from Lakehead Teacher’s College, which is now the Faculty of Education at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, ON. Having taught in Thunder Bay and at Pic Mobert First Nation, Alice and her husband, Doug, moved to Curve Lake First Nation, where he was born and raised. While looking after their four children and their home, Alice completed her B.A. from Trent University as well as developing her skills in beadwork and sewing. In 1980 she discovered quilting, mastering the techniques which allow her to create the meticulous hand-quilting in her bed coverings and wall hangings. Gradually Alice formed the concepts which would be the basis for her distinctive style and work. She is also Chair of the Kawartha Truth and Reconciliation Group that meets in Peterborough.
