Soirika is a Matrimonial service to connect Konkani brides and grooms to find suitable life partners. Please respect privacy of the listings here.

NAKA provides a discussion section and communication forum for our Konkani seniors. We aim to connect our Mhalgades with their friends all across North America and globally.

E-Khabbar is everything and anything that is konkani from a konkani point of view, is the only North American Quarterly Newsletter catering to the social and cultural needs




North American Konkani Association (NAKA) was formed in 1998 when Nina Padukone, Damodhar Baliga, Vasanth Bhat and (Late) M. Vasudev Nayak, saw the need for an all-encompassing national organization to help unite the North American Konkani community, with the goal of preserving our language (our means of communication), showcasing our culture, introducing our children to konkani and nurturing our customs and traditions. With this vision, NAKA strives everyday to serve as a helpful resource when needed and create a presence for the Konkani community in the US and Canada.
