http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_VaeaThe Legend of Vaea and the King of Fiji (Tui Fiti)
Many years ago in the islands of Samoa there lived a handsome giant named Vaea. He was very strong but gentle. Stories about him were told all over the Pacific. When Tui Fiti, the king of Fiji, heard about Vaea, he became jealous and decided to travel to Samoa to destroy him. His warriors prepared three outrigger canoes and they sailed towards Samoa.
One evening while Vaea was up in the mountains he saw Tui Fiti and his men arrive. He waited until midnight when Tui Fiti and his men were sound asleep in their canoes. Then he came down the the harbor, picked up the canoes with the men still inside them and put them on top of the trees.
In the morning, Tui Fiti woke up, saw the ground far below him and became frightened. Soon Vaea appeared and then Tui Fiti saw how huge he was, he begged him to spare their lives. In return he said he would give Vaea anything he wanted. Vaea knew that Tui Fiti had a beautiful daughter named 'Apa'ula so he asked for her to be his wife. Three warriors went to Fiji to get 'Apa'ula. When they returned Vaea kept his word and put their canoes back in the water.
'Apa'ula lived with Vaea as his wife until one night when she heard her father preparing to return to Fiji. While Vaea slept, she slipped away and returned to Fiji with her father. Months passed and a baby boy was born to 'Apa'ula but her father was angry and killed the baby so that there would be no Samoan blood in Fiji.'Apa'ula was so sad that she ran away and went back to Samoa.
Vaea missed 'Apa'ula so much that by the time she returned his body had turned into a mountain. Before his head turned to stone he told her it was too late and she should return to Fiji and her people.'Apa'ula stood at the foot of the mountain and cried and cried. To this day there is a mountain near Apia called Mt. Vaea and at the foot of this mountain flows a river called Loimata o 'Apa'ula,'Tears of 'Apa'ula'.
