Hui Mālama Ola Nā ʻŌiwi kicked off its island-wide series of “Ola Pono Ola Loa” Traditional Hawaiian Healing Workshops on March 11, 2017 at Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale in Hilo.  Over 100 attendees took in the valuable cultural information presented by Poʻokela Ikaika Dombrigues, Laʻau Lapaʻau Master for Hawaiʻi Island.  Laʻau Lapaʻau (medicinal plants) were on display for close-up viewing.  Attendees were treated to stories of health and healing passed on to Poʻokela Ikaika by his Kupuna, and they also engaged in the application of Lomi Lomi techniques, and rich stories about Hoʻoponopono and Laʻau Kahea.

Poʻokela will present his next workshop on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the Waimea Community Center from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
