In August of 2003, our wonderful friend Valerie Monson, who helped us to make my mother’s “Footprint Girl” wish come true, started Ka ‘Ohana O’Kalaupapa. A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the value and dignity of every individual who was exiled to the Kalaupapa peninsula beginning in 1866, they have helped hundreds of people find the ancestors who were previously lost to them. If you had an ancestor who was exiled to Kalaupapa, the ‘Ohana want to hear from you.
CONTACT THEM at http://www.kalaupapaohana.org/contact-us.html. Your ‘Ohana, or “family”, are not lost…they are waiting for you to find them.

The ‘Ohana needs your support. The ‘Ohana is in the midst of a campaign to bring together those family members, friends and others who want to support the Kalaupapa community. One of our biggest projects is to establish The Kalaupapa Memorial. Please join us today and become part of the ‘Ohana. http://www.kalaupapaohana.org/support.html
