1912: Territory of Alaska gains congressional delegate
The Organic Act of 1912 renames the District of Alaska the Territory of Alaska. This status gives Alaska representation in the federal government through a congressional delegate. It also establishes a territorial legislature, but restricts it from management of land, fishing, and hunting. Alaska Natives do not have the vote, and cannot participate in elections.
