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.
