Kuna is part of the Boise–Nampa, Idaho Metropolitan Area. The population was 15,210 at the 2010 census. It is one of the fastest-growing areas in Idaho, having nearly tripled in population between 2000 and 2010. A small seasonal creek, Indian Creek, runs through the city. It is now used as an irrigation canal, filled by the New York Canal from the Boise River Diversion Dam. One of the few small floatable waterways in the region, Indian Creek is a favorite swimming spot for local residents.
Kuna originated as a railroad stop with coach transport to Boise. It is popularly believed, as cited by the Kuna Chamber of Commerce, that the translation of the name “Kuna” means “the end of the trail”, but Charles S. Walgamott cites the origin of the name as a Shoshone Indian word meaning “green leaf, good to smoke”. The Western Heritage Historic Byway, designated as a national as well as a state scenic byway, travels around a number of historic sites in the area. South of Kuna is located the Kuna Caves, an underground lava flow cave.
