Founded in 1970

To promote and to nurture the unique values of Kerala heritage and culture, a group of visionary leaders sowed the seed for an organization for New England Malayalees (a region in the northeastern corner of the United States consisting of the six states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut).

KANE is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious cultural organization working towards the betterment of the social lifestyle of the Malayalee in the New England area. KANE provides a forum for its members to meet and exchange views and to foster friendship, goodwill, and understanding among its members and provides opportunities for cultural, and entertainment activities of its members.
