WELCOME TO FOKANA

FOKANA is an umbrella organization of Malayalee associations in North America and Canada. Since its inception in 1983, FOKANA has earned its reputation and received global recognition.It seeks to preserve the North American Malayalee integrity and promotes the Kerala Cultural identity

The first recorded arrival of an Indian visitor to America (Salem, Massachusetts) was on December 29, 1790. Ever since, people from India have settled in United States. The immigration Act of 1960 gave an impetus to this. According to the latest census, there are 13 million Indian Americans in the U.S of which around 300,000 are Keralites.

Several of these sons and daughters of Kerala have been recognized in American public life for their outstanding professional excellence.

As a manifestation of the nostalgic but creative Malayali mind, these organizations very soon became the golden chariots for the unique values of Kerala culture and heritage. Read More
