Alice Chang Kamaka at home, 1984.

Kamaka has the distinction of having lived in Kalaupapa longer than any other resident. Sent to the peninsula in 1919, at the age of 13, she would live there for 81 years, passing away in 2000. Wayne Levin says, “I photographed Alice on my first trip to Kalaupapa, in 1984, and it was really fortunate, because she was still living in her house. The next time I came, a couple months later, she was living in the hospital, where she lived the remainder of her life.”
