A group of several dozen Alaska Native people, predominantly women, stand with a hillside behind them.

It is unlikely that the women in this photo, members of the Alaska Native Sisterhood, were eligible to vote. Alaska Native women could only vote if their husbands were American citizens or if they completed a complicated process proving they had severed tribal customs and relationships. As a result, very few Alaska Native women could legally vote until 1924. Jimmie Fox, seated in front, is the only person identified in this photo.
