NACHS was founded in 1997. The Northern Arizona Celtic Heritage Society is dedicated to presenting, promoting, and preserving Celtic culture. Our goal is to educate the public about the heritage, language, traditions, art, and history of the Celtic people both ancient and modern.

Dissemination of information and financial assistance to support Celtic-related events and opportunities is also a prime purpose of NACHS.

We are a non-profit, 501 (C)3 Corporation.
