What is Kalaupapa Ohana?

Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa was established in August 2003 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the value and dignity of every individual who was exiled to the Kalaupapa peninsula beginning in 1866.

‘Ohana supporters include the patients of Kalaupapa who were sent here many years ago, family members, friends, state officials, interested citizens and others who have had a longtime interest in the future of Kalaupapa and her residents.

As the population of Kalaupapa decreases and learns about similar facilities around the world being closed, it was deemed of vital importance to bring together people who would support and help do what is necessary to ensure that the remaining patients will be able to live out their lives in this, their home, and have the assurance that their history will be preserved and passed down for the education and inspiration of present and future generations.

Ka 'Ohana O Kalaupapa is providing "A Source of Light, Constant and Never-Fading" as an educational program for the public about the accurate history of Kalaupapa.  The Library and the Hālau ‘Ike O Pu‘uloa of Leeward Community College are honored to co-host the exhibit during the summer of 2013.
