My Name is Makia: A Memoir of Kalaupapa
Makia Malo with Pamela Young
Softcover, 166 pp.
Diagnosed with Hansen's disease (leprosy) at the age of twelve and exiled to the remote settlement of Kalaupapa, Molokaʻi, Makia Malo lost his hands, his feet and his eyesight over the years—but never the vision or spirit that have made him a celebrated storyteller and poet.
In My Name Is Makia: A Memoir of Kalaupapa, this inspirational Hawaiian now tells his own story—of a child of Kalaupapa who grew up to carry his message of hope and love throughout the Islands and around the world.
