About Jacob Keanu-o-Hawaii Waiwaiole

Some people who are trying to learn about their family history will come to find out they had relatives at Kalaupapa. If they feel at all the same way that I do, they will be proud that their family was part of the 'aina, part of the soul of this land.

The greatest tragedy for people personally challenged by leprosy was, and still is, the separation of families. In Hawaii, one of the earliest names given to leprosy was "Ma'i Ho'oka'awale 'ohana" - "The Disease That Tears Families Apart".

The most important thing for us is to remember our ohana (family) who have passed on. We're the last of the legacy.

We need to let people know They existed.
