HA'APAI, TONGA- APRIL 11, 2007: Mele Fakatu in her home in Koulo village, April 11, 2007 in Ha'apai, Tonga. Captain James Cook, who explored the area three times in the 1770s, gave Tonga its nickname the "Friendly Islands." Tonga is one of the last surviving monarchies in the Pacific islands, however there has been a recent push towards democratic reform, challenging the people of Tonga to maintain their cultural heritage while conforming to modern day capitalism.
