Abstract:

South Dakota's first thirty years of statehood brimmed with activity. National and state suffragists led seven vigorous campaigns, and millions of acres of reservation land opened for settlement. Woman suffrage and homesteading intertwined from the start. This is evident in the small town of Faulkton that was settled by homesteaders and became the early epicenter of woman suffrage in South Dakota. Faulkton's first white residents established an ethos of female independence through their belief in equality and their work for a woman's right to vote. Historians have given much attention to both homesteading and woman suffrage in the United States. Although less exists about South Dakota, Dorinda Riessen Reed wrote a history of the state's suffrage work, and historian Glenda Riley uncovered numerous stories of its women homesteaders while editing South Dakota History. Separate research exists on both topics, but this work will connect the coinciding events using available primary sources. Most important is the Pickler Family Papers, a large collection of letters, legal papers, and photos that belonged to a prominent Faulkton family. Others include South Dakota's "Pioneer Daughters" collection, numerous state and local newspapers, and autobiographical memoirs of homesteading women. South Dakota's founding generation of European settlers instilled a spirit of equality and independence in the second generation of women. As these women reached adulthood, the state's homesteading peaked and the suffrage fight entered its final push. South Dakota provides a unique perspective on the interconnections between homesteading and woman suffrage.
