COVID-19 UPDATE: Please check with individual organizations and venues for specific requirements regarding health precautions.
Founded in 1994, the National Tongan American Society (NTAS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is one of the longest running non-profit organizations to advocate for and empower all Tongan Americans and other Pacific Islanders.
For 25 years, the NTAS has created programs and referrals for the Tongan-American community that promote civic engagement, optimal health, youth development, education, the arts, and festivals that perpetuate Tongan culture and values.
Our mission is to strengthen the Pacific Islander family by promoting health, education, cultural preservation and civic engagement.
Our vision is that Pacific Islanders are healthy, self-reliant, culturally aware, and civically engaged.
We have partnered with the Salt Lake County Health Department along with other organizations, to help and host vaccinations clinics throughout the Salt Lake County. We believe that everyone has the right to their own opinions, but we still assist with those who would like to keep their family and friends safe. We have limited masks and COVID-19 home test kits that we distribute at our events.
