Ohwa is a village on the mid-eastern shore of the Micronesian Island of Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia. Ohwa was derived by combining two Pohnpeian words, “Ohn” meaning vine of a large local yam and “wa” bearing large amounts of fruit. When combined the word Ohwa is descriptive of an ancient legend describing a place where many vines produce a lot of fruit. Long ago the area now called Ohwa was barren with many rocks and no plants. The male ghost Enimwahn came and decided to shift the land upside down so that the soil was on top and the rocks were below. This movement of the earth allowed Enimwahn to plant vegetation. There grew many different types of food and plants
Childhood memories of living at Ohwa inspires the writer in me.
