Diagnosed with Hansen's disease at the age of 12 and exiled to the remote settlement of Kalaupapa, Makia Malo lost his hands, his feet and his eyesight over the years.

But, he never lost the vision or spirit that have made him a celebrated storyteller and poet.

In "My Name Is Makia: A Memoir of Kalaupapa," co-authored with KITV's Pamela Young, Malo 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.
