We flew into Kalaupapa and were honored to stay overnight in the settlement. We stayed with Dr. Kalani Brady, who was there to care for the patients. He spends 2 days a week in Kalaupapa. We met and interviewed patients, took an “insider’s tour” of the peninsula and stayed in the Kauka’s (Doctor’s) cottage.
We were there to do an article in the next edition of Ka Wai Ola http://www.oha.org/kawaiola
