With the last day of Women’s History Month upon us, all are welcome to check out Women Win the Vote, the Centennial Gazette publication produced by the National Women’s History Alliance.

Native American women, who endured a long fight for voting rights in the United States, are covered on pages 7, 22 and 30. The full edition is available to read for free HERE. While non-Native American women won the right to vote in 1920, via the 19th Amendment, both Native women and men were not granted the right to vote in all 50 states until 1962—even after Native Americans had won U.S. citizenship in 1924, following The Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, also known as the Snyder Act. For further Women’s History Month reading, earlier this month, Biography published a nice breakdown of amazing women, check it out here: 5 Powerful and Influential Native American Women.

Voting differently than their House leaders, including Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA), 105 Republicans joined 206 Democrats in voting to expel George Santos (R-NY) from the House of Representatives on Friday. In the end, the vote was 311 to 114 on Friday morning. The vote is historic, as Santos is only the sixth member of Congress ever to be expelled from Congress. Three of the four Native Americans serving in Congress voted yes. {loadmoduleid 698} Those voting yes were Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK-4th District), Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS-3rd District), and Rep. Mary Sattler Peltola (D-AK-At-Large). Cole, the longest-serving Native American in Congress, chairs the House Rules Committee. The only other Native American in Congress, Rep. Josh Brecheen (R-OK-2nd District) voted no on the measure. Prosecutors accuse Santos of a number of financial misdeeds, including reimbursing himself for loans to his congressional campaign that he appears to have never actually made — in essence, stealing money from campaign donors.
