Aporosa, S. Apo; Fa'avae, David Taufui Mikato – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
Pacific practice is grounded in "vanua" and "fonua," Fijian and Tongan terms encapsulating notions of land, culture and people. "Fono at the Fale" and "Veiqaraqaravi Vakavanua" are expressions of "vanua" and "fonua" cultural practice and are facilitated by, and through, the use of kava.…

Taito, Mere – Waikato Journal of Education, 2021
Every poem has a creation talanoa: a story of how it was written. In a Rotuman context, 'talanoa' or story, can either be a 'rogrog/o' or 'hanuju'.
