Documents include the correspondence from Eugene Van Reed, consul general for Hawaii to Japan; the passenger list of the Scioto; the labor contract; and the treaty between the kingdom of Hawaii and Japan. The exhibit, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Gannenmono in Honolulu Harbor on June 19, 1868, was presented in the Manoa Grand Ballroom of the Japanese Cultural Center.

Rediscovering the Forgotten Who Lived in Kalaupapa Exile
In an effort to put stories and faces to names, a database is being created by a nonprofit group in the hopes of educating people around the world about the hardships endured by people who were sent to Kalaupapa from the time it was established as a settlement for Hansen’s Disease patients in 1865. The database, which has about 5,000 names so far, is being assembled with Hawaii State Archives materials, including letters, settlement records and photos, and other resources. The names are also being gathered so they can be inscribed on a memorial to be erected in Kalaupapa.
