Meet-Up Mondays - executive director Sheri Daniels celebrates someone special in the Papa Ola Lōkahi ‘ohana each Monday.

 

Emily Keononaonapua Makahi has been a part of the Papa Ola Lōkahi ʻohana as the Grants and Data Coordinator since 2016. 

She received her Masters in Social Work (2010) and is pursing a doctorate degree in Public Health at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Emily has worked with various programs to promote Native Hawaiian health.  Her research focuses on the accessibility and acceptability of Hawaiian practices in achieving overall health and wellness. 

In addition, she is a student of traditional teachings from two traditional Hawaiian schools/practices, including hoʻoponopono--Kumu Anakala Likeke Paglinawan and Anakē Lynette Paglinawan--and hula--Kumu Hula Kaʻilihiwa Vaughan-Darval of Hālau Hula Ka Lehua Tuahine.  Emily feels truly blessed and humbled by her ability to learn from such knowledgeable kumu to continue to give life to our traditional practices and honor our ancestors through practice.     

Her passion includes empowering well-being through our traditional healing methods and living pono.
