Ma'afu : the making of the Tui Lau
Ma'afu, born in Tonga about 1826, was a son of Aleamotu'a, Tu'i Kanokupolu and a cousin of Tupou I, king of Tonga. When aged about 21, he came to live in Fiji and within fifteen years established a power base to rival that of any indigenous chief. In 1865, a Wesleyan missionary visiting the island of Vanuabalavu paid a call on Ma'afu at his home in Lomaloma.
