Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America FeTNA is an umbrella organization of Tamil Sangams that function within the North American Continent. It is a registered, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. FeTNA was founded in 1987 by five Tamil Sangams: Tamil Association of Delaware Valley, Tamil Sangam of Washington & Baltimore, New York Tamil Sangam, Ilankai Tamil Sangam and Harrisburg Tamil

Sangam. An assembly of over 400 Tamils near Philadelphia celebrated the inauguration in the spring of 1988. Since then the Federation (FeTNA for abbreviation) has organized an annual convention each of the subsequent years. FeTNA’s primary objective is the preservation and growth of Tamil Language, Culture, and Community.


FeTNA Accomplishments FeTNA has been principally responsible for bringing together 45 + Tamil Sangams to celebrate annually a festival in which the individuals and groups from member Sangams have presented artistic programs or interacted in one of many activities organized during the convention weekend. People who have attended the past twenty six conventions have almost all had been complimentary in describing their experience. It has been tremendously heartening to note that the annual convention is an event to be at with the family. The youth have especially complimentary.

The second accomplishment has been FeTNA’s sponsorship of many Tamil Scholars in the past twenty four years to visit the US and the various members Tamil Sangams. FeTNA is committed to sponsor at least two Tamil Scholars each year. The other accomplishments of FeTNA include the support of Tamil chair projects. Publishing Aruvi Magazine every three months.
