The stealing was done by some people who urged 20 others. . Those two people [who urged the stealing] are Hao, male, and Muolo, male. . Therefore we want these two to be separated [from us and taken] to Honolulu to be held in jail. 20 Two months later, in December 1866, Muolo was reported to be a respected­ member of Siloama Church, along with Hao, who had been accused with him. That same month, the Reverend Anderson O. Forbes and his associate Reverend S. W. Nueku made their way to Kalawao to preside over the church’s official organizational meeting, held on December 23.

What they were unwilling to do was give up their families. While many religions and cultures throughout the world dictated that those with leprosy should live apart, this concept was completely foreign to the Hawaiian people. In later years, William Kawaipu‘aikawahaokahaku Malo would reflect on his family’s love and the cultural values that led to keeping those who were sick at home: “The Hawaiians were neighborly, loving each other and helping each other in times of need and suddenly a different kind of lifestyle was thrust on them—‘Me first’—it was just not the way they behaved.

Hokuwelowelo, one of those ill with leprosy residing at Kalaupapa, Molokai, calling for and questioning where is the doctor for those ill with leprosy living in Kalaupapa, Molokai? They heard that Dr. Hoffman said, before their being sent to Molokai that there was a doctor on Molokai who would minister to their sickness. But when they went to Molokai they did not see the least doctor for them. They are thinking of searching the mountains for said doctor and if they do not find him they are going to Kaluaaha with the thought of meeting with the doctor.
