South Dakota Humanities Council

The South Dakota Humanities Council (SDHC), founded in 1972 in response to an act of Congress, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the only cultural organization in the state whose sole mission is to deliver humanities programming to the people of South Dakota. Our vision is to "lead statewide advocacy for the humanities, working with other partners to foster literary and civic engagement." This programming vision forms the core mission:

The South Dakota Humanities Council celebrates literature, promotes civil conversation, and tells the stories that define our state.

If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.
