About Us

Originally founded in 1952 as an association of Indonesian Embassy employees, the organization later evolved into IKI (Ikatan Keluarga Indonesia). Initially focused on organizing social events for embassy families, IKI expanded its scope as the community grew, aiding in family settlement, job placement, and social event coordination. With time, IKI became independent from the Indonesian Embassy, establishing its own organizational structure. Recognizing the increasing community needs, formalizing IKI as a registered organization became imperative. Hence, IKI transitioned to the Indonesian American Association (IAA) and officially registered as a non-profit charitable organization in the District of Columbia in 2014.
