Mahalo Valerie Monson for sharing your manaʻo on Kalaupapa

Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa, an ohana of Kalaupapa patients,  their family members and friends, is dedicated to promoting the value and dignity of every individual exiled to Kalaupapa, Molokai since 1866. This organization serves as a resource to help shape the community’s future, assist with the interpretation of history, educate the public and make certain that the legacy of Kalaupapa will remain a living inspiration and testament for generations to come.

When:  Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2017 
 Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapū.
Speaker: Valerie Monson,
award-winning journalist who has been interviewing and writing about the people of Kalaupapa, Molokai since 1989 and has published more than 150 articles.

Catered Dinner Buffet: Kalei’s Lunch Box 

A very well attended event, Valerie used a video and slides to bring alive not just the history but individual faces and stories of some of the people sent to Kalaupapa.  She shared the extensive preservation efforts that Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa is in the midst of conducting; documenting and digitizing the history.  As a new resource, they have already helped over 700 families reconnect with their ancestors and learn their stories. She also informed us of the efforts and fundraising for the Kalaupapa Memorial, sharing a conceptual drawing and the significance of the design.
