The Pomare Family...
I believe that the Pomare Family and the French had a great deal to do with the downfall of other Cheifly families (Pomares' were one of many-families- with the French became supreme.)

enjoy/have fun/thank you, Vai Sekona

The island of Futuna has a new King

71-year-old Polikalepo Kolivai, who is a traditional chief, was crowned king of Sigave during a traditional ceremony following his designation by the district council of chiefs.
According to Oceania Flash, his appointment by the council of chiefs has sparked criticism from at least two rival clans on the island, which say they were not consulted and that the right procedure had not been respected.
They say therefore they won’t recognise the new King.
Although itself a republic, France recognises the three kingdoms of Wallis, Alo and Sigave and grants them some influence on local matters.

Prince Raanui Daunassans-Pomare, part of the royal Pomare dynasty of Tahiti, visited late last week to cast his eye over the painting of the Tahitian princess, which he last saw hanging in the villa of his grandmother, Princess Takau Pomare, in Nice.
Te Papa spent more than two years negotiating with Christie's to buy the painting, which was put up for auction by Prince Raanui's siblings – unknown to him.

According to Wikipedia, Poedua was a Raiatea princess, daughter of Orea or Orio, King of Ulietea in Tahiti. She was taken hostage together with father, brother, and husband during the third voyage of James Cook in exchange for two sailors that deserted on to the island. The hostages were enticed on board HMS Discovery and imprisoned till Orea secured the return of the deserters.- Source

Royalty of Tahiti

Many people may not know that Tahiti and many of it's neighboring islands were once Kingdoms with their own flags, laws, government, and royal families before they were annexed by France in the 1880s. I'm going to post some info about royalties from this region as I start looking into their history.

To begin with from the first Western contact to 1880, the Society Islands (the island group, sometimes just call Tahiti even though that just one island) were made up of FOUR different kingdoms. ancient Kingdom: Kingdom of Tahiti, consisting of Tahiti, Moorea, Meetia and the Tetiaroa group. Kingdom of Huahine, comprising Huahine proper and Tupemanu. Kingdom of Ra'iatea, comprising the islands of Ra'iatea and Tahaa. Kingdom of Bora Bora, comprising the islands of Bora Bora proper, Motuiti, Maupiti and Mapateia. I always thought they were eventually united just like Hawaii was. But no, unlike Hawaii, these islands were never united for more than a few years when their kings and queens married each other. For the most time, until they were annexed by France, they were seperate kingdoms just like what Hawaii would have been like prior to the 1750s.

Queen Joanna Mara'u Ta’aroa Tepa’u Salmon was actually of part Jewish descent from her father Alexander Salmon (Solomon) who married her mother Tahitian princess Taimai, the adoptive daughter of Queen Pomare IV.

Since Mr Morehu-Barlow is not royal himself, this info had been already posted into 'Exposing imposters' thread.
