It was a great drive and dream of the Malayalees in Detroit and neighboring suburbs to have an association whose main objective is that of preserving and maintaining the culture and heritage of Kerala amongst Detroit Malayalees. This craving led to the inception of Detroit Malayalee Association (DMA) about 30 years ago.Every year, DMA conducts numerous programs and activities for our community’s well-being and its progress. We try to preserve the Malayalee tradition and culture through the activities and events we conduct.
The Association provides opportunities and encourages its members to participate. It also provides a forum for the Malayalees residing in Detroit and neighboring areas to meet and exchange views and also to foster their friendship, goodwill, moral, social, educational, literary, artistic and cultural heritage.
