Photo Essay: Kalaupapa Memories, Molokai, Hawaii


(page 6 of 10)

Henry Nalaielua with his favorite dog, Sabu, Kalawao, 1985.

Pet ownership was very common among the residents. Levin says that since children were taken away from the patients, pets became very important. Most people had dogs, but one patient had, “like 100 cats,” Levin recalls. “The dog in that photograph, I remember him really well. It was Henry’s favorite dog, a half-pitbull, but a really nice dog. Henry would always drive me over to Kalawao or different spots, and the dog would always be happily running alongside the truck.”
