You are very funny. Its a village with the best of both world. Two differnt types of oceans ready acces to well water and the best land for kava. Visit the place and tell me yourself.

Ifisakolo is Sitiveni and the matapule is Leka. Good fishing for kavakava as well as fua when in season.

Lots of lomu, kolukalu, loli and the oceans can easily finance evry family with upto $200 per day.

I love the place.

No wonder why it could be the new claim to "cradle of polynesia".

Of course Samoa, Fiji, and some intellects, like 'Okusitino Mahina are trying to say that the finding by the Canadians are insufficient proof to lay claim for Nukuleka to be the "cradle of polynesia". But I sure would like to see that these findings will be substantiated and to confirm that Nukuleka is indeed the oldest site of the Lapita people and claim to be the "cradle of polynesia".

Go Nukuleka Go.

What The is the original. He is from Nukuleka. The soon to be named site as the 'cradle of poly'.

I forgot to metion, kava drinkers take note. Every thursday they have kava and then give out sea food. Somenites it 'ota ( fua) or lomu etc.

They are good and fresh. Pilisona 'if you are still umisi you will find good clean lomu at the mangatolu, most from nukuleka the gradle of polynesia.

'Okusi by the way has every right to point our weaknesses and area that needs to be further researched but in my heart and mind nukuleka is my cradle till death. nukusmall all the way. Small town but big heart. Soni teu toki kumi atu ha nailoni he na'e kai 'ehe kavakava ia ho'o hina nailoni. lol.'oka fiema'u fakavavevave pea pooni atu e pasikala 'a Ikafoli. lol
pilisona I will be in Tonga agin first week of Feb and will visit the site and share. Cheers from the Vaikasila

I will make it a priority to get there and drink some kava and 'ota.

Last month, my demo friend invited me to their kava raise fund party. He said there will be lots of fish and all those delicacies. I missed out. I am still bummed up to now that I did not go.

Pilisoner Tonga is going to Nukuleka.

By the way, you need to get hold of a copy of the documentary done by Setita Millar's program in NZ, Le'o 'oe Famili, on allegations on the gold that was on Port au Prince. Faile 'Atamai.

sorry but though I cant stand it to excess I can hold my own, thank you.

I am a president of one kalapu and a patron of another that has branches in tonga and five othe countries.

Kava from nukuleka's tou'one soil is the the strongest taste with the cleanest appearance, almost milky.

The current youth mix it strong so bewrae.
cheers

President and Patron?

You would make a great Pro Democratic Leader. Too bad we are on two different sides of the fence.
