Celebrating and Preserving Ethiopian Heritage

At the Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA), our core mission is to celebrate and promote Ethiopian culture through literature, music, and the arts. We focus on enriching the cultural experience of Ethiopians and Ethiopian-Americans by offering educational programs that highlight our rich heritage and by fostering cross-cultural understanding to enhance North America's cultural diversity.


Key Activities and Tasks

 The Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA) undertakes various tasks and activities, including:

  • Promotion of Ethiopian Culture
  • HSNA is dedicated to showcasing Ethiopian culture through various mediums such as literature, music, and the arts. This involves organizing cultural events, exhibitions, and possibly cultural exchange programs.
  • Community Enrichment
  • The organization aims to enrich the lives of Ethiopians and Ethiopian Americans in North America. This could involve community-building activities, social events, educational programs, and providing a platform for networking and support among community members.
  • Cross-Cultural Understanding
  • EHSNA works to promote understanding and appreciation of Ethiopian culture within the broader North American cultural mosaic. This likely includes participation in multicultural events, collaboration with other cultural organizations, and educational outreach to non-Ethiopian communities.
