Maisie Shiell, Canada
1998 in Salzburg
In English it sounds like the well-chosen title of a comedy: "Nobody likes to mess with Maisie". This is how Priscilla Settee, a Cree, from the "Indigenous Women's Network" described the effect of what is probably the strongest single woman army in Canada. Born in England, she was and still is the terror of all Canadian prospectors and uranium mine operators. She received the NFFA for her life's work.
