Welcome to Oriya Association Of Arizona (OAA) official Home Page. OAA is a non-profit organization devoted to furthering Oriya culture in Arizona, USA. It is a collective endeavor and venture to establish a communication nerve center for the huge conglomeration of the Oriyas in and around the fringes of Arizona.. a medium for exchanging news, views and rich cultural hues under one common umbrella . We seek to promote and co-ordinate Oriya cultural, educational and community activities. AOA has been serving the Oriya speaking community of Phoenix and surrounding areas for more than 5 years. Our goal is to promote the understanding of our Oriya language and cultural values of Orissa.
A mouthpiece ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’ of wonderful Oriya community to ‘express themselves and be expressed’, a forum to strengthen socio-cultural ties, a place in the Valley, where a few mouse-clicks can make one get a feel of ‘home away from home, rich heritage of Orissa’
