Kansas’ name comes from the Kansa Native American tribe, which means "People of the South Wind."

During the settlement of Kansas, the U.S. government allowed residents to vote whether Kansas would be a free state or a slave state.

Early Kansans were concerned with women’s equality, and granted them the right to vote in school district elections as early as 1861. By 1887, women were participating in municipal elections, and by 1912 Kansas had finally extended them equal voting rights—a full eight years before the 19th amendment was ratified.
