GUEST,mgarvey@pacifier.com Ballad of the Merry Ferry -songs of the Northwest (111* d) RE: Ballad of the Merry Ferry (Pacific NW) 02 Jan 02


speaking of Hawaians and the Northwest...there was quite a village in Vancouver WA at Ft. Vancouver....they had a deal with the king who sent "laborers", however defined..who worked probably for several years. Some returned, some stayed. And Hawaii was part of the Hudson's Bay territory of the Vancouver fort. Kalama is named after a Hawaian..as is Aloha OR. The fort had a nice Hawaian (am I spelling this right) Christmas re-enactment. Many of the H's were used as divers. Now, get this...near to where I live, at the mouth of the Columbia...there was a leper colony. I don't know what the connection is but I think my source told me it was related to Father Damian's colony in Hawaii. I'll have to learn more about it. mg
