City Books acknowledges that our small business operates on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Seneca Nation, and the Lenape people, who have stewarded these lands for generations.
We pay our respects to their elders, past, and present. We recognize their enduring presence and honor the connection to this land that remains vital to their cultural heritage. We also support the ongoing work of Indigenous communities and organizations in Pittsburgh to protect and promote Indigenous rights, cultural preservation, and well-being.
We commit to fostering an environment of respect, awareness, and inclusivity, standing in solidarity with the Indigenous peoples who valued this watershed and concede that, as readers and writers, we owe a debt of gratitude to the Nations who came before us — without whom a literature of the Americas would not exist.
