Pāhana I Mana - Native Hawaiian Youth Voting Advocacy

Sept. 20, 2022

Happy National Voter Registration Day!

For her senior legacy project, KS Hawaiʻi senior Cheyenne Sato has created Pāhana I Mana, a voting advocacy campaign to encourage her peers and other Native Hawaiian youth to use their voice through registering and voting in our elections.

Watch the introduction video for her project below, or on her Instagram account for the campaign (@pahanaimana):

She has a series of videos and other content planned to support these efforts and educate other youth to not only register, but participate as informed citizens in the electoral process. 

Outside of social media efforts, she’ll also be meeting with age-eligible seniors about registering and voting, and present to the rest of the senior and junior classes to encourage their participation as many are at least 16 and can register now for the 2024 election.

You can follow along with her journey and get more information via her Instagram at
