Some of our most important, cherished possessions are the lessons handed down to us by our ancestors in the form of tradition. Without tradition, we as a people and as individuals would feel lost. This is why HMONO pays special reverence in restoring, perpetuating, and preserving the traditions that have managed to survive to today. We are ever grateful for both those who have carried on our heritages, and for the opportunity to promote, spread, and educate others about this legacy.

Hui Mālama Ola Nā ʻŌiwi’s Traditional Health workshops are making headway throughout Hawaiʻi Island. Poʻokela Ikaika Dombrigues and the Traditional Health Team will present the next Traditional Healing Presentation on June 24, 2017 at Kohala Village Hub.

The workshop will feature Poʻokela Ikaika Dombrigues and his insight into the healing wisdom of Hoʻoponopono, La‘au Lapa‘au, and Lomilomi Ha Ha. Poʻokela understands how today’s current demands can affect the health of our island’s people. His workshop will provide rich cultural knowledge and a way to help others care for themselves and their ohana. Dombrigues promotes health by sharing the healing wisdom of his Kupuna and his ancestors in their use of La‘au Lapa‘au, Hawaiian values, and Hawaiian spiritual beliefs.
