Pai & Vau

Traditions say that the first people to be found on the island of Nanumea, Tuvalu, were two women, Pai and Vau. Tefolaha (a man whose true origins are debated to be either Samoan or Tongan) was on the lookout for a new home, when he stumbled upon Nanumea. There, the three characters had a battle of wits and cunning to see who was worthy enough to claim the land as their own.
