The main project and event is the Annual Sedona Lunar New Year Cultural Festival in Feb.

Promoting Volunteerism

Focused on enhancing the quality of life in the communities where we live and work, KAANA is actively involved with community organizations.

Sponsoring the Cultural Bridge awards and scholarship for students

The Cultural Bridge Awards recognize students that bridge the gap among different cultures and their diverse ways of communicating in Great Sedona area.  Students may be selected for an award by recommendation by schools or groups. The scholarships recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the Sedona community through their efforts to bridge cultures.

It is the goal of KAANA to provide opportunities and to encourage students to become active in their community through their cultural service. The scholarships have been established to acknowledge and reward that service.
