"The Restoration of Family Ties" project has helped hundreds of families in Hawai`i learn more about ancestors or loved ones who were sent to Kalaupapa because of government policies regarding leprosy (now also called Hansen's disease). Ka 'Ohana O Kalaupapa uses a growing collection of information they have compiled from various archives and other sources to bring the people of Kalaupapa back into the history that they helped to create and help families remember these ancestors with love and pride. Join us and learn about these inspiring family stories.
