City Books respectfully acknowledges that we are on the traditional, ancestral lands of the Osage Nation. The process of knowing and acknowledging the land we stand on is a way of honoring and expressing gratitude for the ancestral Osage people who were on this land before us and that as readers and writers we owe a debt of gratitude to the indigenous peoples who came before us — without whom a literature of the Americas would not exist.
