MORE ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH ‘ŌLELO COMMUNITY MEDIA
The Ka‘ōnohi Awards 2011 evening event was captured on film as a result of a partnership among Papa Ola Lōkahi, ‘Ōlelo CommunityMedia and the Women’s Community Correctional Center on O‘ahu.
Over the past four years, Windward ‘Ōlelo
has been training female offenders on the fundamentals of producing, camera handling and other techniques, as well as editing video. This training allows the women to learn employable skills, as well as encourages their own inner creativity. The women have used their skills in assisting Papa Ola Lōkahi in the video production and editing of Healing Our Spirit Worldwide – The Sixth Gathering
, held on O‘ahu in September 2010.
- 43% of the WCCC population are Native Hawaiian
- 60% of incarcerated women are mothers to Hawaiian Children
A partnership such as this assists WCCC in its vision of transforming lives. Not just the lives of the female offenders, but of those whose lives they touch.
Papa Ola Lōkahi recognizes the importance of such healing and supports WCCC
in its mission to change the community’s attitude and behavior toward these women. Our sincere mahalo to Warden Mark Patterson and these women for their service in the filming and editing of this important event, and to them, our aloha as they work toward positive changes in their lives.
