Tonga was the top dog in the pacific for hundreds of years. Even today other small countries in the Pacific consider Tonga a colonial power just like the US or the UK however Tonga was the ONLY pacific nation never colonised.
The Tongans call me a Palenque (white cloud) an affectionate term.
It has archaeology that I consider unique and its terraced tombs match measures similar to those of south america in their mare.
I wrote this for my local archaeology club here in Brisbane for interest.
The Tongan Haka however is fierce and rivals that of the New Zealand Haka and today this small country won at rugby. What a game what a leveller.
