The One Hundred Fathom Square launch

Associate Professor Malakai  Koloamatangi, Director Pasifika at Massey University  proudly invites all Tongan communities,  interested individuals and organizations to the launch of the  One Hundred Fathoms Square authored by Bruce Alexander and Larry Wordsworth.

Bruce and Larry were surveyors in Tonga in the mid-1950s having been invited by the Tongan Government of the time to formally survey landholding entitlements resulting in the legalisation of the allotment of the 8.25 acre to every Tongan male over the age of 16 years.

The book is the result of their experiences in Tonga, presented in both texts and coloured photographs.  It will be of interest to Tongans, researchers and general readers.

The Book is to be launched by Her Royal Highness Princess Mele siu’ilikutapu tomorrow Thursday 12th September 2013, 6:00pm at the Staff Lounge, Study Centre, Massey University,Albany Campus.

About The Author

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
