Papa Ola Lōkahi was honored to partner with Pashyn Santos, local filmmakers, and Hawaii news outlets for ʻOur Kuleana, Made with Pashynʻ – a project meant to open the door for conversations about COVID-19, its impact on our community, and the controversy surrounding vaccination.

Pashyn has always leveraged humor and entertainment to bring light to important social conversations, and it is our hope that this special does exactly that. This fast-paced, fact-filled, half-hour program will bring joy to everyone, regardless of their stance on vaccination. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Papa Ola Lōkahi has tried to engage community through different mediums – in-person events, social media campaigns, and PSAs. Education and awareness are the key components in building a healthy, happier, and safer Hawai'i for everyone

Papa Ola Lōkahi, in partnership with ‘Ahahui o nā Kauka, Association of Native Hawaiian Physicians, has embarked on an campaign to raise awareness of issues around Hawaiian involvement in genetic and genomic research for medical purposes. We have begun by introducing a series of presentations on Hawaiian Genomics in the fall of 2020, and we are providing a reading list below.  Eventually, we will be reaching out to Hawaiian communities for guidance.  Meanwhile, check back here regularly to catch up on the resources so that you and yours are able to make informed recommendations.

A KaonohiAlexander Friedenburg Ka‘ōhiai Ka‘ōnohi, 1905-1960, was a naturopathic physician, pharmacist and botanist descended from a long line of Hawaiian healers.  He was a pioneer in integrating western and traditional practices into his daily healing work.

Alexander was born April 24, 1905 to James Ka‘ōhiai Ka‘ōnohi and Minnie ‘Awa‘awa Friedenburg. His grandfathers and great-grandfathers were herbal medicine practitioners

His obituary claims he was the only licensed Hawaiian drugless physician in Hawai‘i when he opened up his new clinic, Ka‘ōnohi Naturopathic Clinic, on the corner of Castle and Kapāhulu streets in Honolulu.  He specialized in Hawaiian herb treatments, drugless medicine and bloodless surgery.  He had branches on Maui and Hawai‘i Island, where he saw patients and mentored younger medical and lā‘au lapa‘au practitioners.

Dr. Ka‘ōnohi graduated from the Standard and National College of Drugless Naturopathic Physicians in Chicago with doctorate degrees in naturopathy and drugless medicine, and a masters in natural medicine.  He was also certified in pharmacy.

Dr. Ka‘ōnohi has been an inspiration to the Hawaiian health community for his holistic approach to healing and his commitment to mentoring others striving to serve the greater good.

Thus, Papa Ola Lōkahi has presented the Ka‘ōnohi Award to 64 individuals for their significant contributions to the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and their families.

Learn more about Dr. Ka‘ōnohi in this 2011 video.

Hau‘oli Lā Hānau, Dr. Ka‘ōnohi!

20180822 HURLaneBPapa Ola Lōkahi executive director Sheri-Ann Daniels and the directors of the five Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems are monitoring Hurricane Lane.  We are all taking precautions to assure our clients, patients, and employees are safe, and facilities are secured.

The cone generated by the projected path of Lane indicates all islands will be impacted from Thursday though Saturday.  Expect to experience intense showers and thunderstorms, flooding and high surf.  There is a high likelihood that we will all see winds of 40 MPH or higher.

A HURRICANE WARNING is currently in effect for the Island of Hawai‘i and Maui County, which includes Molokai, Lāna‘i and Kaho‘olawe. 

A HURRICANE WATCH is in effect for O‘ahu and Kaua‘i.

By Thursday, Papa Ola Lōkahi will be closed.  Hawai‘i Island has already cancelled its classes around the island, and the other NHHCSs are expected to announce adjusted hours for the rest of the week.  Please check their respective websites for updates.

Other resources

Your county office of civil defense will have a list of the emergency shelters on each island.

Be safe, stay informed, kōkua one another.
