Ka Ohana O Kalaupapa to Host Educational Workshops, 2012.

I neglected to post this related information about workshops being held by Ka Ohana o Kalaupapa in conjunction with the exhibits at Iolani Palace and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. They say: “The workshops will provide a new perspective on the history of Kalaupapa and will encourage teachers to include the history in their curriculum.” This indeed sounds like a good thing! There in fact was one just yesterday evening. Did anyone get to attend? If yes, how did it go?

There is another one scheduled for the evening of the 2nd of October. For more information, check out the link below.

“The People of Kalaupapa as Active Participants in Their Own History,” 2012.

Tomorrow at noon, there is a Brown Bag Presentation put on by The Center for Biographical Research at University of Hawaii at Manoa. The topic is looking at the Leprosy Colony on Molokai through Hawaiian-Language Material. It sounds like an immense but priceless project! If you are interested, find the details in the link below!!
