Welcome to our Bookstore!

Tia Chucha's independent bookstore is a social venture which recognizes that books and knowledge must be accessible to communities that reflects their culture, histories, stories and values.  We specialize in providing great books on Xicanx and Latinx history and literature, indigenous knowledge, bilingual children’s books, contemporary and social commentary issues, as well as Spanish-language, queer/LGBTQIA, art, poetry, antiracism, social change, and much more!
