Kalaupapa National Historical Park (NHP) may be filling one Museum Technician (General) position to assist with cultural resources work. Kalaupapa NHP established as a park unit in 1980, is located midway along the north coast of the island of Molokai, in the State of Hawaii. The park is situated entirely within Kalawao County, which is governed by the Director of the State Department of Health. The County includes the historic Hansen's disease isolation settlements of Kalawao and Kalaupapa. The park was established to commemorate and preserve the story of those afflicted with this dreaded disease and their forced exile from family and friends. Hansen's disease patients were physically isolated from society. For more information, please visit the park’s Facebook page.
The access to Kalaupapa is very restrictive, not only for tourists, but also for your friends and family. By State Law, friends and family may only visit the park 13 days each quarter of the year and they must wear a visitor ID tag throughout each visit.
The cost to travel by plane from Kalaupapa to Honolulu is approximately $160 round trip for residents and $320 round trip for non-residents, including your family members. The other transportation alternative to flying is to hike 3.5 miles up a very steep trail from the park to topside Molokai. Once you reach the top of the trail, you will still need to find transportation to get to the airport and/or the only large town on Molokai, which are both about 10 miles from the trail head.
This is a full-time TERM position. Appointment to this position will not convey permanent status in the Federal service and will be for a period not to exceed 13 months, with the possibility of incremental extensions up to a total of four years without further competition.
