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.

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW), the attacks on tribal sovereignty at the Supreme Court and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.  Please consider a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10 to help fund us throughout the year. Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
