Each Monday, executive director Sheri Daniels introduces a member of the Papa Ola Lōkahi hale.
Babette Lilinoe Galang, Traditional Healing & Complementary Health Director of Papa Ola Lōkahi, is one of six children born and raised in Kalihi where she still resides. She enjoys working at POL, where she has been since 1997.
She also enjoys talking to people young and old, but especially with kūpuna, traditional and cultural practitioners, other native groups, and children. Babette keeps busy reading, working in the yard, shopping, eating desserts, and travelling, especially to Las Vegas where she can be found on the slots or at a Black Jack Table and eating her favorite Lappert’s Kona Coffee ice cream from the California Casino. She enjoys eating local food as long as she doesn’t have to prepare and cook it.
Babette loves what she does and is more of an early bird than night owl; thus, you can find her in her office by 6:30am.
Most of all, Babette hates talking about herself. Amene.
