What Is The Meaning of KIVA?

Kiva is an underground sacred ceremonial chamber where knowledge of our culture, traditions and oral history are practiced and perpetuated throughout generations; and where prayers are made for the goodness of all mankind. It is in this context that we selected KIVA as the name for our company, so that we may share our knowledge and experience for your benefit. are Natives helping Natives.
