CLA Land Acknowledgement

The Community Library Association acknowledges that our libraries and the communities we serve occupy the ancestral land of the Onodawaga people, who are popularly known as the Seneca Nation, a people who are one of the six nations of the great Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Iroquois. We also recognize that the Seneca generously welcomed Lenapi Nation (Delaware) refugees from eastern Pennsylvania where their territory was invaded by European settlers.

The Lenapi settled here in the Pittsburgh area in the region of Lawrenceville and north in Kittaning. Shawnee Nation communities were also welcomed into this region and settled here. We not only honor these original inhabitants, including well-known regional historical figures such as Seneca Chief Guyasuta who resided in the area now occupied by the town of Sharpsburg and Seneca Clan Mother Alliquippa, but acknowledge the history of colonialism that led to our presence here.

While we cannot change the past, we acknowledge that Indigenous people are integral to our history and our present. We are dedicated to being stewards of this land and the Allegheny River flowing through our communities. Through the sharing of stories, information, and care for the land and people of our community we will ensure that all are welcome and respected.
