Background: Actual formation of this educational association (with emphasis on culture, history, current events and genealogy) occured at the 3rd FEEFHS Convention in Minneapolis (11 June 1996) during and after the presentation by Adeline Copa/Sopa on Kaszuby and the Kaszubians.

Geographic Location of Kaszuby: The geographical area of Kaszuby is essentially a trianglular shaped area in northern Poland directly south of the Baltic Sea and between the Odra (Oder) and the Wisla (Vistula) Rivers. Included are the present day Polish provinces of Bydgoszcz, Gdansk and Slupsk. It is the homeland of the ancient Slavic tribe known as the Kaszubes.

Publication: Przyjaciel ludu Kaszubskiego ("Friend of the Kashubian People"). It is quarterly in the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. This newsletter is in English. KANA always welcomes submissions of articles or suggestions for topics. Please contact the editor, Renata Stachowicz.
