Our goal is to help, encourage, and inspire Lithuanians and their descendants worldwide!
The National Lithuanian American Hall of Fame (NLAHF) was established by Jon Platakis to acquaint the American public with Lithuania, its epic history, its people and their culture.
Many individuals, having Lithuanian roots, reached the pinnacle of their professions and achieved world-wide fame and fortune. However, as an ethnic group, Lithuanians live in relative obscurity among their neighbors.. 200 years of foreign occupiers and their attempts to suppress and malign Lithuania and her history, denied her voice on the world stage of nations. Lithuania has again emerged as a free nation, and is able to share its epic history and culture with the rest of the world.
What better way to acquaint Americans with Lithuania, its history and culture than through its people! By honoring those with a Lithuanian heritage, who have contributed mightily to America, the NLAHF has the unique opportunity to introduce our American friends with a newly independent nation, its history, and its people.
Our Board of Directors, a diverse group of professionals, develops and guides our programming in educational and cultural activities which are open to everyone, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.
The National Lithuanian American Hall of Fame asks you to become a member and join us in helping, encouraging, and inspiring Lithuanians world-wide.
