Our Leaders

The objective of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the state of South Dakota is to perpetuate to a remote posterity the memory of our Pilgrim Fathers.  To maintain and defend the principle of civil and religious liberty as set forth in the Compact of the Mayflower, “For the glorie of God and the advancement of the Christian faith, and the honor of our country.”

The South Dakota Society of Mayflower Descendants welcomes inquiries and appreciates interest in our activities. Our members all have demonstrated direct descent from the Pilgrims or their companions who bravely crossed the Atlantic in the Mayflower in 1620. We have organized as a society to commemorate the spirit of these brave people who had such strength in times of adversity. Beginning with the signing of The Mayflower Compact, our ancestors created a self-governing community founded upon democratic principles.

Below is a list of our current Officers:


Governor:   Randy Olivier
