You have countless accounts on different forums and have obviously spend a tremendous amount of your time researching through Google, Wikipedia, books and mostly dissertations(phesis). Also have posted and started many discussion threads further expressing you passion of Ha'amoa's dominance and significance in the Pacific.
A colleague of mine mentioned to me about your forum popularity and how you have managed to provide hope for Ha'amoans in Pulotu to redeem themselves.
Here is the Truth:
Polynesian History that were before 1200 AD are all approximation and due to the lack written records. However, most of the written records of both Tongan and Samoan History are contradicting your claims.
Your Claims of the Tu'i Manu'a Empire having influence or dominance in Tonga is exactly the same as my claims of Ahoeitu (1st Tu'i Tonga) being buried in my backyard in Pelehake, Tongatapu.
Other claims, you refer to to signify the Tu'i Manu'a are the Ha'amoa man that provided the Land fishing Hook. Just like my claims of Ha'amoan tattoos originating from Fiji. It was taught by the daughters of the Tuifiti to Sau because of his hospitality.
If you analyse your cliams and mine, they're both unsubstantiated and no written records point to any of your claims, as they don't point to mine.
I hope this example can set the truth from the fable.
Now lets move on to the Basic truth. Around 1200 AD Ha'amoa was colonized by Tongans (note: not Tonga but Tongans. Many Tongans and Ha'amoans know this for a fact. It is also recorded in many books and journals of european voyagers.(Ella 1899, Fitisemanu and Wright 1970, Krämer 1994,
Stuebel 1995, Turner 1984)
Now what is the difference between what I just posted and what TOA posted?
I posted published records of events that happened in history. Toa posted information deduced from other forums.( note. Forums are unstantiated until you provide a link to published information. Also the internet is a fleeding medium containing fiction and non-fiction information. But that's totally a different topic and it requires its own thread.) Those forums/articles were probably created by him. Now Do you think that his information is legitimate? I didnt think so.
I concur with some of Toa's claims relating to the Tu'i Kanokupolu. But in the same light as the statement above, his exaggeration has provided more unsubstantiated information.
17th Century, Tu'i Ha'atakalua a line of ruling chiefs that splitted from the Tu'i Tonga about six generations earlier. This 6th generation Tu'i Ha'atakalaua married a Ha'amoa woman named Limapo from Safata on Upolu. She came over to Tonga with a fine mat called "Maneafaiga'a". They had a son called Ngata and with the support of the rebels (Tongans not Samoans) became a very powerful chief. Hence, created a new line of Kings (Tu'i) called Flesh of Upolu in honour of his mothers homeland. Even up to the investiture ceremony of the King Tupou 4 in 1967, he was presented with the same kind of Ha'amoan fine mat.(Kaeppler 1999).
Agian, how is my information different from Toa's claim, that thousands of Ha'amoans reinforcing Ngata to overthrow the Tu'i Tonga. The difference again is the source of information.
The many influences of Ha'amoa in Tonga:
Linguistic, Monarchy System, ways of life does not point to any suggestion of Ha'amoa occupying Tonga.
Of course there were influences from both sides. It was more of a mutual influence rather than a dominance of nations in this context. Once, Ha'amoa drove off the Tu'i Tonga they had trading connections with each other (including other islands too, like fiji) providing different kind of resources.
