7 QUESTIONS THAT ARE KEEPING US AWAKE 1. So come July 26, the day after the current Tui Atua is no longer the Head of State, is he still His Highness? 2. After being addressed as His Highness for 10 years, what new honorific if any, will he be known by?

Think a Minute

Think a minute… In 1951, a nuclear disaster almost took place at a nuclear power plant in Canada. The core reactor had melted down, so it had to be taken apart before more deadly radiation escaped into the nearby community.

Street Talk

Do you support Moata’a’s decision?

The village of Moata’a is standing by its decision to ban a Chinese man from operating a store in their village.
