The first bill ever passed by the Alaska Territorial Legislature granted voting rights to women, but only in 1924 did Alaska Native women become eligible voters, when the federal government granted U.S. citizenship to Native Americans. Museum Services Curator Anjuli Grantham will share some of the stories behind the exhibit on the Alaska State Library and Historical Collections.
