Lyman Museum to host special exhibit on Kalaupapa
Friday, Aug. 29, will be the opening date for a new special exhibit at the Lyman Museum — “A Source of Light, Constant and Never-Fading” — presented by Ka‘Ohana O Kalaupapa.
This exhibit focuses on the strong relationship between the people of Kalaupapa and the royal family of Hawaii, a chapter of history often overlooked. Recently presented with a Preservation Media Award by the Historic Hawaii Foundation, the exhibit features historical and contemporary photographs along with the words of the people in English and Hawaiian.
There also will be a presentation accompanying the special exhibit, “The Restoration of Family Ties” by Valerie Monson of Ka‘Ohana O Kalaupapa, about the work of the ohana in reconnecting the families to their Kalaupapa ancestors, followed by family members from the Hilo area discussing their memories and experiences.
This presentation is slated for 7-8:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 10, as part of the Lyman Museum’s Saigo Lecture Series in the museum classroom.
Ka‘Ohana O Kalaupapa is a nonprofit organization established in 2003. Membership includes Kalaupapa residents, family members, friends students and anyone interested in this important history.
