Hi my name is Fine. I am 9 years old and I am fully Tongan. Tongan is known for it’s Friendly people. They love to dance, sing and cook tongan food. They love weave. They make ta’ovala and kahoa. They love to eat keikei vai, otai.
Today I have brought a picture of a tongan artefact from my culture to share with you. It is a ta’ovala. This ta’ovala is important to me because it belongs to my great,great grandmother. She is no longer with us. My mum wears it on special occasions.
When I dance it reminds me of the time how me and my nana made my very first tongan dress.
