The South Dakota Humanities Council kicks off its first statewide "Voting: Why It Matters" virtual program on Tuesday, Dec. 15, as part of a $50,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to educate South Dakotans on the importance of civic participation. The event features a screening and discussion of the short film "Without a Whisper/Konnon:Kwe" - the untold story of the proud influence of Indigenous women on the beginning of the women's rights movement in the United States. Featured guests are Professor Sally Roesch Wagner and Mohawk Bear Clan Mother Louise Herne (both featured in the film), along with filmmaker Katsitsionni Fox.

The event will take place Tuesday, Dec. 15, from 7-8:30 p.m. CST via Zoom. It is the first of a series of programs that will include guests such as Gloria Steinem, Louise Erdrich, Thomas E. Patterson and Robert V. Burns, as well as additional regional experts on voting access and engagement, particularly among Native Americans. The event is free, but registration is required.
