Welcome to the website of Kerala Association of Washington (KAW), a non-profit, non-political, non-religious cultural organization working towards the betterment of the social lifestyle of Keralites in the Pacific Northwest. We, Malayalees, come from the southernmost state of India, Kerala. Also known as "God's own country", Kerala is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our native language is "Malayalam" and so the name "Malayalees". KAW strives to maintain and promote the golden heritage of Kerala through our highly acclaimed cultural events, stage shows featuring celebrities from Kerala, sports tournaments, literary and educational activities, and charity initiatives. KAW also serves as a forum of friendship to exchange of ideas and information for the Keralites. We exhort all Malayalees of Washington state to actively participate in the various programs organized by KAW. For a brief history of KAW, click here.
