Pasifika: Tongan

The Prince of Tonga himself graced the occasion. My Tongan Student Ma'ata cnfirmed that  that the young man seated at the gazebo was her prince. His loyal subjects sat on the ground behind him.

The Tongan brass band played when I was there to see if I could see my student Ellinna performing.

They are wearing their mat lava lava (sarong) on top of their fabric lava lava. This is a very formal occasion.
