Numerous Ohioans are descended from Lithuanian ancestors. Today, Lithuanian Ohioans continue to enhance Ohio's cultural and social landscape. One way that they do this is through the weekly publication of a Lithuanian newspaper, Dirva.

Dirva began publication in August 1916, in Cleveland, Ohio. Published in the Lithuanian language, this newspaper served as a means to deliver the news to Cleveland's growing Lithuanian population. During the 1960s, Dirva was published three times per week, but it currently is only published once per week. It continues to be published in Cleveland, and it is only one of eight major Lithuanian publications in the United States of America at the start of the twenty-first century.
