More information: This very special virtual town hall discussion* will cover ways traditional medicine and Native Hawaiian healing can help us emerge from the COVID-19 crisis stronger, better and more aware than ever, harnessing the best of both worlds for the good of all.

Lt. Gov. Green has been on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, fighting to “flatten the curve.” In addition to being the Lt. Gov. of the State of Hawaii, he is a practicing emergency room physician on Hawai‘i Island.

Kalani Souza is a Native Hawaiian elder and wisdom keeper, and the founder and director of Olohana Foundation, a non-profit that focuses on building community capacity, cohesiveness, resilience and emergency preparedness around food, energy, water and knowledge systems.

They represent two approaches to healing and hope for the future of Hawai‘i.
