News Campbell Pohai Nuuhiwa

Congratulations to Pōhai Nuʻuhiwa Campbell, an attorney in our Trusts & Estates Department, who has been awarded the Empowering ʻŌiwi Leadership Award (E OLA) by the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement. E OLA is given to Native Hawaiians who exemplify leadership qualities, and are engaged in their community. They are also given a monetary award to help elevate their work.

Pōhai has been recognized in the category of “Mālama ʻĀina – Environmental Sustainability” for establishing her small business,  Kaleimamo Hawaiʻi, which creates beautiful, reusable cloth diapers and accessories featuring designs inspired by indigenous Native Hawaiian culture and stories. Its mission is to help raise our keiki (children) more sustainably, perpetuate Hawaiian culture, and serve as a resource for the community and beyond.⁠

Pōhai was also recognized for the pro bono work she is doing with Cades Schutte for non-profit organizations that serve Hawaiʻi and the Native Hawaiian community.

Rhonda L. Griswold, Chair of Cades Schutte’s Trusts & Estates Department, comments, “Pōhai always shows the utmost dedication to her clients and legal work, and I am constantly amazed that she can commit so much time to her pro bono representations, outside interests, and family while still putting her client work first. She is an irreplaceable member of our team and there is no one more deserving of this award.”

“I am very honored to receive this award from the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement for my work with Kaleimamo Hawaiʻi and also my pro bono legal work,” Pōhai says. “Cades Schutte has been extremely supportive of my personal passions. I am grateful that Cades Schutte encourages a balanced lifestyle, and I look forward to growing my legal practice as well as my small business.”
