This is a request from Brandon Midgett for a topic about the 1800’s outbreak of smallpox on the Hawaiian islands. There is not a lot of information on the Internet about this subject, so I used two great books as my main sources. Below are links to the books and the few websites I did use for information. Thanks for listening!
The Hawaiian word for smallpox is ma’i pu’upu’u li’ili’i (the sickness with many little pimples).*
