Hawaii State Capital

The close of the 2018 Hawaiʻi legislative session wrapped up many bills that sought to impact the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and communities throughout Hawai‘i.  Some were successful, some were not.

The need for a unified voice for our lāhui is greater now than ever as we face growing challenges of houselessness, substance use and addiction, rising number of suicides and other behavioral health needs, access to ‘āina to grow our traditional foods, and the on-going efforts to protect, preserve and perpetuate Hawaiian traditional practices.

With the political primary election season in full swing, Papa Ola Lōkahi is committed to uphold our mandate be a voice for change, support and growth, and to create and promote venues for our communities to participate and learn. Take an active role in finding your voice for Native Hawaiians.

E Ola!
