Why you will love the meaning of 'HOKU'

Sisterhood Ohana


We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.

Our story

Sisterhood Ohana is a re-defined workplace, based on Ancient Elders Seven Teachings of love, honesty, respect,, truth, courage, humility, and wisdom. We are a social movement of Awakening. We are taking our stories, and your story, to the people where we (the women) will be documenting our work in building sustainable, affordable homes. Yes, you, the woman; AND  your children, will take on a major role in designing, getting approved, and moving forward to build your home, all while re-defining what it is to be a woman, a mother, during this time of Awakening.

Your Success Story

You need to be yourself. You come with the skills you already have, that are inside you, that are inside your children. You have the opportunity to build on these skills, through workshops, through the building of our place of like-minded community here on the Big Island. You don’t need a resume, you don’t need an accredited degree. You need to be passionate about our divine birthright to incept, create, and self-realize.

You will be supported by ‘Pono Imua’, a new social framework that has been carefully engineered to meet the growing needs of those that are Awakening, meaning that it is cultivated to provide physical, financial support for mothers and their children in need of (a home) and a way to bring your passion to the forefront for yourself and your children.

More about our story

We are conducting workshops and seminars for awakened living throughout the island of Hawaii.

You will have the chance to take part in these workshops, bringing your skills and areas of expertise, all the while building home after home, dream after dream, because the new home is the “easily built home.”

‘Designed by Heart. Built with Confidence’

Who We Are

All of us here at Sisterhood Ohana are mothers, healers... we have been drawn together by our like minded passions and purpose. To build our own homes, sustainably, off the grid, incepting the fair trade principles that were the original foundation of a healthy society.

We have the principles, we have the solutions.

We believe that the way to remain optimistic, visionary, and inclusive, is to practice these principles in action, in the NOW.

We are in that Now, as a collective, we, are inviting you, mother, seeker, visionary, genius, to come forward and continue to walk your walk with the commitment that our ancestors had, that we want for our children.

We are providing a strong foundation for mothers and their families to secure their commitment through participating and joining us.
