Delta Kappa Delta (ΔΚΔ) is a United States based sorority for young women who have dedicated their hearts and souls to service and sisterhood. B.E.T.I.S. ("Behind Every True Indian Sister") was created as the grass roots service organization in which the National Founding Mothers realized the need to unite, serve, and educate the community. On October 1, 1999, these 13 young women began to spread their ideals to others under the name of Delta Kappa Delta. In addition to serving the community with enthusiasm, the National Founding Mothers emphasized excellence in education, citizenship, culture, and Sisterhood. Today, the women of Delta Kappa Delta continue to exemplify the innovative concept of “Service through Sisterhood, Sisterhood through Service”.



Delta Kappa Delta Sorority commits itself to the fostering of a united sisterhood, the development of the spirit, the betterment of the community through humanitarian services, and the education of ourselves and others about the Indian sub-continental culture.


I slept and dreamt that life was joy,
I awoke and saw that life was service,
I acted, and behold, service was joy.

- Rabindranath Tagore
