for the opio

Welcome to Pua Mohala

Through workshops, retreats, and cultural activities, we empower our ʻōpio by prioritizing wellness and aloha ʻāina. Established by two indigenous women in the moku of Koʻolaupoko, Oʻahu, our goal is to cultivate a safe space for youth and young adults across the globe to flourish and thrive in, so that they will become culturally conscious and successful adults.

WHY WE DO IT

O kēia ʻuʻuku e nui ana -

This smallness will be big later

Our vision is to create a healthier lāhui through the healing and advocacy of our indigenous youth.

 

We recognize the weight intergenerational trauma places on our shoulders. We feel compelled to guide our youth to unpack these burdens through self empowerment.

HOW WE DO IT

He lei poina ʻole ke keiki -

A lei never forgotten is the beloved child

We create safe spaces for youth to explore relevant themes and find self empowerment through workshops, retreats, and wellness services. 

 

We look to cultural practices, ancestral diets, and the knowledge of our elders to help guide our work, curriculum, and focus. Through collaboration with other indigenous organizations, we seek to create a platform where youth feel represented.
