In 2003, Governor Rounds combined the Department of Tourism and the Governor's Office of Economic Development to form the Department of Tourism and State Development (DTSD). Administration of the Division of Cultural Affairs, which included the South Dakota State Historical Society and the Arts Council, was transferred from the Department of Education and Cultural Affairs to the new department. The Office of Tribal Government Relations also became part of the DTSD.
The DTSD operated from 2003 until 2011, when the newly elected Governor Daugaard dismantled it. The Department of Tourism and Governor's Office of Economic Development were reinstated, with Tourism maintaining responsibility for the Office of History and the Arts Council. Tribal Relations became its own department in an effort to illustrate the importance of tribal government relations to the new administration.
