Nā ‘Ōiwi ‘Ōlino – People Seeking Wisdom seeks to further OHA’s mission of bettering the conditions of Native Hawaiians through outreach and communication with the Native Hawaiian community and the public at-large. Programing will include interviews with key state leaders in the Native Hawaiian community and the State of Hawai‘i; provide information on current events and hot issues such as the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act as it nears passage; and feature interesting and informative topics that align with OHA’s six strategic priorities: economic self-sufficiency, land and water, education, governance, culture and health as well as programs that fulfill the critical needs of our Native Hawaiian community.

Mahalo for remaining a loyal and dedicated listener as we work to innovate and provide an improved source of information of Hawaiian issues and interest as people seeking wisdom.
