Naga Convention in USA
The Naga American Foundation (NAF) will be holding the 2014 NAF Convention in Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A., from July 18-July 19. Dr. Sanyo and Marsha Konyak are our gracious hosts.
Started in the 1980s by a group of visionary Nagas in America, the Naga American Foundation is a social and cultural organization whose objectives are:
• Advancement of Naga people in the USA.
• Promotion of their common interests and provision of charitable, educational and cultural support.
The NAF has attained tax exempt status under Section 501 (c) (03) of the Internal Revenue Code, and as such, is not and cannot be affiliated with any political group in the U.S. or abroad.
Funded entirely on donations and membership fees from our members and supporters, we are currently able to offer two $500 scholarships to one undergraduate and one graduate Naga student every year.
The 2014 NAF Convention theme is “Nagas in America: Our Beginnings & Journey Forward.” We want to acknowledge the foresight and vision of our elders while also deliberating the direction the organization can take in the years ahead.
We encourage all Nagas in the United States to connect with us so we can form a collective bond and support each other. We invite prayers for a rich and productive event in July and for continued growth of the organization. To learn more about the NAF, please visit our website at http://www.nafconnect.net/home.html.
