Mālō e lelei, Happy Tongan Language Week! Happy Uike Lea Faka-Tonga!
As part of the 'Writing the New World' commitment to profiling Indigenous Voices through early twentieth century Indigenous Language Texts, the 'Writing the New World' project had the pleasure of profiling the research work undertaken by the soon to be Dr Elisapesi Hepi Havea and Mele Latunipulu. It was also a crucial opportunity to talk about promoting and integrating our Indigenous Tongan language texts into children's education.
Here is the 'Writing the New World' Tongan Language BONUS EDITION. It is titled 'Elisapesi Hepi Havea and Mele Latunipulu: Connecting with Tongan Language Literature'.
