Sisterhood Ohana is building Optimistic Vibe Basecamp!

Zero Waste! Using free wooden pallets and salvage material

Next step is our proposal presentation for Sisterhood Ohana’s weekly television show ‘Alternative Homes Hawai’i’. To show HGTV our stuff we are hosting a free workshop to the public in a live demonstration of dismantling wooden pallets without tolls and free how-to construct lessons in building a scaled model of ‘Wétū’ the Optimistic Vibe Basecamp on a trailer pulled by our adorable VW Camper, HOKU.

Other workshops we are including in our series range from hearing from local Alternative Home professional, alternative living enthusiasts, and following each week the design and building videos and blogs.

Sisterhood Ohana will quickly become the Alternative Home lifestyle experts on HGTV! Stay tuned as we produce our first episode of ‘Alternative Homes Hawai’i’.

Our purpose is our Cultural Gift to Hawai'i

We are One Love, One World, One Native

We care, ‘Pono Imua’, our voice being heard directly for the people, environment, and community.

We are gathering your voices by hosting Alternative Homes Community Conversations regarding much needed Housing Options in Hawai’i.

‘We are a group of organized women, strong and confident. We are building homes of self-reliance on state-owned land as an experimental model of Social Architecture to benefit our children for the next seven generations. We are gathering public input from people at our public events at five libraries and four cultural centers, plus input from community leaders and civic leaders, and with federally-funded University of Hawai’i Small Development Office, we are gathering very important input from Educators. Then it’s off to the Governor for signature.’
— Lani Obina

With the University nearby to help...

At the Alternative Homes Community Conversations we host we are gathering input from the people’s voices, and input from Civic Leader’s voices. We are presenting our findings to our friend, elected-officials Cindy Evans and Jen Ruggles, for review and comment.

Our mission is to deliver a voice of sound reasoning for leasing 20 acres of state-owned land for a group of single mothers with child in need of home with a proven model of self-reliance. We are honorably delivering our message to Hawai’i County Council Member Tim Richards.
