Tokelau is located 3,355 kilometres North, North East of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Historically and traditionally, Tokelau had four atolls. Fakaofo, Atafu, Nukunonu and Olohega. Today, Tokelau now only has three atolls. The Tuluma is a based on a true story. I grew up in a home with lots of Tokelau artifacts, in Porirua, New Zealand. I did not understand the significance of these artifacts until I became an adult. I hope you and your family enjoy reading this book written in English and the Tokelau language.
