Ka ʻIkena—the vision adopted by Papa Ola Lōkahi—is a thriving Native community composed of healthy individuals and families informed about their rich heritage and culture, living in a state of lōkahi (unity), and making informed choices and responsible decisions in a safe island society that is pono (in proper order).

Among our guiding principles is mālama: a Hawaiian cultural value that guides our work to nurture, care for, and steward. As the Board of Directors for a Native Hawaiian-serving organization, we recognize that our edict of mālama encompasses people, the environment, and our living culture.

As Kānaka Maoli making up the Native Hawaiian Health Board, we know that wahi kapu, sacred places, are essential to Hawaiian identity, health and well-being.

Papa Ola Lōkahi supports the protection and preservation of all sacred places in the interest of perpetuating traditional and customary rights of Native Hawaiians.

E ola mau a mau.

Ratified by Papa Ola Lōkahi board, July 16, 2019 [PDF]
