Papa Ola Lōkahi is proud to present No Ka Māhūi.

No Ka Māhūi, meaning "for the māhū community", is an homage to the common rallying expression, 'no ka lāhui' and is emblematic of the community building this toolkit is striving to create between queer Native Hawaiians and the lāhui at large.

This toolkit provides educational materials discussing the history of māhū in pre-contact Hawai’i, the effects colonization has had on our collective sense of self, and outline the specific gaps in health care that impact kānaka who exist beyond the gender and sexuality binary.

Health care professionals and kānaka who are either struggling with their identity or finding it difficult to access empathetic and culturally conscious care will find No Ka Māhūi especially useful. Papa Ola Lōkahi convened an advisory council with diverse professional and personal backgrounds who provided historical knowledge, cultural insight, systemic context, and vital lived experience.

COVID-19 has further illuminated the gaps in health care that exist for queer Kānaka. No Ka Māhūi hopes to bridge that gap. We strongly encourage healthcare professionals who work with or wish to work with this community to review and share these materials with their networks.

Mahalo nui loa to our advisory council for your ʻike and manaʻo. Use the link below to download our toolkit.

kala hands dementiaWhat are the systems in place to address the impact of Alzheimer's and other dementias on Hawaiian families and communities?

Papa Ola Lokahi is facilitating the development of a Healthy Brain Road Map to support discussions and increased understanding about dementia and caregiving with Hawaiian communities and to encourage a public health approach within a larger holistic response.  Such a road map will help communities understand.

It is hoped that the findings will prepare our communities to act quickly and strategically by stimulating changes in policies, systems, and environments easily and efficiently.
