South Dakota Humanities Council

The South Dakota Council created a series of programs designed to increase public understanding of the electoral-engagement barriers faced by people historically absent or excluded from civic activities, particularly women and Native Americans. Through their Speakers Bureau and Festival of Books they invited such prominent writers as Gloria Steinem, who discussed the ways in which the women’s movement of the 1960s/70s built on indigenous examples and the suffragists’ work, and Louise Erdrich who addressed the ways fiction can both reflect and influence civic involvement.
