OHA has come a long way in the development of Papakilo and the engaging of various Partners to get to this point, however we acknowledge the fact that now our kuleana has increased.  OHA pledges to continue to seek out partners and data collections within the community for the purpose of ensuring that these collections are preserved and hopefully made available to the public. 

If there are data collections that you think we should know about, or would like to see included in Papakilo, please let us know so that we can add them to our growing list.



Aloha Admin,

My line of work entails creating data in a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment.  I'm uncertain as to who I should contact to initiate communication about our efforts in perhaps providing or sharing this concept of data collection. 

If you know of someone within your organization that would be interested in learning more about our efforts and would like to know more details about it, please let me know by replying to this posting or sending me a message to my email.  Our goal is to make this information available to the public via GIS mapping.

Mahalo nui loa!

I am associated through the Samoan v'aa, Gaualofa, with 'Te Mana o Te Moana', an initiative to spread the knowledge of our collective Pasifikan ancestors and highlight ocean degradation through pollution. The details of which are on this site

The short story is, that we are 7 traditionally Pasifikan styled and crewed va'a/vaka/waka/boats sailing from New Zealand, up and back across the Pacific ocean over the next 18 months.

We will be part of a conference in Hawaii over June, the 'Kava Bowl Ocean Summit' to present some findings.

What i am seeking though, is a Hawaiian translation of a prayer i wrote that encapsulates who and what i espouse personally with my involvement in this journey. It can be found here.

If anybody could point me in the right direction to fulfill my wish, i would be most indebted.

I posted a reply here 2 weeks ago and I didn't hear from the Admin via posting reply or by email.  Does anyone get any response to their postings here?



Aloha Kilipaki,
Kala Mai, we've been very busy planning out the next phases of Papakilo.  Regarding your contact request for OHA's GIS specialist, that would be Kamoa Quitevis and he can be reached at

Once again, i apologize for the delayed response.  Feel free to post back if you have further questions.


Aloha Robbie,
Thank you for your message.  A great resource for Hawaiian translation that can be found here at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs is Kama Hopkins.  His contact information is

Mahalo for your inquiry and please let us know if you have further questions.
