I want Shield Block reaction for a Kobold Barbarian. If the feat works for more builds, it is even better.

Is it possible to get Shield Block through a class or ancestry feat?

I found Viking Weapon Familiarity, but it requires Viking Dedication. 2 feats are a steep price, is there anything simpler?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Which is your adopted ancestry? You can get it with your 5th level Ancestry Feat if you pick human... although I'm guessing that Feat is earmarked for something else from your Adoptive heritage \$\endgroup\$

No

There is (currently) no way for a Kobold to gain Shield Block without spending a General Feat on it, except for Viking Weapon Familiarity, as you've noted.

As always, it's hard to prove a negative. But I have searched both Shield Block and General Feat through all the class and other Archetypes and Ancestries, as well as for options that would allow a Kobold to dip into a second Ancestry, like Halflings can.
