The Voice of Maisie Hurley

June 1, 2012


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).
