The Serama Council of North America is a non-profit organization founded in 2003, by Jerry Schexnayder of Louisiana, two years after he imported the Serama from Malaysia. It is the the original, and the largest Serama Breed Club in North America. The Serama is quickly becoming the most popular bantam in the United States, and SCNA members have organized shows and events in nearly every region.
