The Voice of Maisie Hurley


Maisie Hurley (1887-1964) was one of BC’s most well-known native activists in the 1940s through to the 1960s. Strong-willed and complicated, she left her mark on the province’s history.

I profile this unconventional woman who had stories to tell and battles to win, in the summer 2012 issue of BC History journal (45.2).

The Voice of Maisie Hurley” has been awarded the Anne and Philip Yandle Best Article Award for 2013. Many thanks to the British Colombia Historical Federation for this honor.
