The Tongan diaspora of New Zealand, Australia, and the United States has invented the observance of village days. Auckland affiliates to Kolonga, a rural farming settlement in Tonga, held an inaugural village day on October 26th, 2015. The result generated mixed feelings. The greater part wanted Kolonga day made a regular celebration. Others thought the event could be improved. While some saw the maiden Kolonga day as chaos, which should be reworked to resemble a function less costly and showy, and more down-to-earth and practical. Why have Tongan village days taken off in diaspora, and will they continue to be bankrolled by generations born overseas?
