Land Acknowledgement

City Theatre would like to acknowledge that our buildings reside on the unceded, ancestral lands of the Adena, the Hopewell, the Monongahela, and the Osage, who were followed by the Shawnee, the Mingo, the Lenape (or The Delaware) and others. Later members of the Haudenosaunee (hoe-dee-no-SHOW-nee) Confederacy, particularly the Seneca took refuge in the areas surrounding Pittsburgh. We are mindful that our work here is possible because the land and lives of people native to this place were stolen. Generation upon generation (past, present, and future) of indigenous people here and all over the world are respectful stewards of the earth and its resources. Through this acknowledgement, we invite you to join us in paying respect to the elders both past and present.
