Miki‘ala Pescaia descends from a long line of Hawaiian storytellers, who captured the history of Molokai through chant, dance, and oratory. Fortunate to serve as the first interpretive ranger for Kalaupapa National Historical Park located on her home island, Miki‘ala embraces the responsibility to steward the history—eras of fertile lands, hard working residents, cunning chiefs, mythical beasts, powerful deities and in the last 150 years, a quarantine settlement for individuals afflicted with Hansen’s disease established by kingdom law. Miki‘ala strives to bring together multiple perspectives to broaden and strengthen our collective sense of place.
