Radio ABC is re-visiting Kava Ceremony by talking to Professor Siosiua Lafitani of Lo'au University

Radio ABC Producer, Tim Bruneo, and Broadcaster, Seini F. Taumoepeau, are running a 'Pacific Mornings Series' on kava/ava this Thursday 15/02/18 between 10am and 11am, and beyond. They are happy to interview Professor Siosiua Lafitani from Lo'au University in Tonga and Australia, among other experts like Australian-Vanuatuan Anthropologist and Curator Kirk Huffman, this week to speak about kava in its various traditional behaviours, as well as, other complicated and conflicting manifestations worldwide.

Both speakers were among the international scholars and leaders in 2011 who were lobbying against the sudden ban of kava in Canberra by the Local and Federal Governments. Professor Lafitani, with Huffman, will be interviewed by Taumoepeau on Pacific Mornings this Wednesday. We hope that this Series will bring into the fore again how importance kava to Pacific Islanders since antiquity. 

According to Taumoepeau, she looks foward to further interview Lafitani in the near future about other issues of great importance to Australia and the Pacific, or Tonga in particular, such as Lo'au University as the first online educational university among Island nations, as well as, the recent rise of Island athelets worldwide.

Feel free to tune on to Pacific Mornings on Radio ABC this week to hear Lafitani and Huffman.

Palu Aviation and Tonga Breweries sponsor Lo'au University's 30 Weeks TV and Radio Programs

Palu Aviation and Tonga Breweries in the Kingdom of Tonga have agreed to sponsor the 30 Weeks TV and Radio Programs of Lo'au University from the end of 2017 until June 2018.

The contact person for LU, Visesio Siasau, said that they are both happy to sponsor the programs because of their focus and emphasis on educational and informative discussions regarding various issues of great importance to the nation and beyond.

On behalf of the LU, Siasau is thankful and grateful to both for their generosity and willingness to finance the programs on TV and Radio Tonga Broadcasting Commission.

The Dean Professor Siosiua Lafitani is writing to the two businesses expressing words of great appreciation on behalf of Siasau and Lo'au University.

Lo'au University is also grateful for Siasau in encouraging and convincing such businesses to sponsor the programs. 

Please find below a published article on the background of the Lo'auan TV and Radio Programs since 2014 including the 30 weeks TV and Radio programs that have impressed the two businesses. The program runs every Monday evening between 8.30pm and 9pm both on TV and Radio.

New TV and Radio Program for Lo’au University from 2017-2018

Since the Official Launch of Lo’au University in 2014, it hasn’t organized and conducted a regular TV and Radio Program on Tonga Broadcasting Commission nor any other Radio Station in the Kingdom. In 2013 until 2014 while organizing and promoting its new educational program to be launched in January 2014, we were running a weekly Radio Program on 97.5 FM for about 3 to 4 months only. With Tonga Broadcasting Commission, Professor ‘Inoke Hu’akau runs some programs only when he is in the Kingdom. Overall, Lo’au University hasn’t conducted a TV and Radio program regularly, and the attempt this time to run a regular program either on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
A few sponsors under the organization of ‘Aisake Tuiono funded a weekly program not for the University but just for Professor Siosiua Lafitani to talk about Tongan culture and history in relation to some current issues from 2014 until 2016. The program was known as Lo’au mo e Tangikee Fakakaukau Fakafonua/Lo’au and the National Thinking Tank. They stopped sponsoring this weekly program in early 2016. After the dissolution of the Parliament of Tonga in 2017, Laumanu Petelo from Tonga Broadcasting Commission invited Lafitani to talk in a series of program. The program was known as Vavanga, and it was stopped after the general election in November.
Hu’akau in November this year started a new series for the University, only when he is in the Kingdom, and since then we have been trying to continue our TV and Radio program. As an academic movement, it’s very vital for Lo’au University to resume and continue its program regularly, mainly to share with the public its research, knowledge and wisdom; and to help enlightening people in current unclear and controversial matters of great concern that have perpetuated misunderstanding throughout the Kingdom. Since the new series that Hu’akau has kicked off last month with Holosini Uata and Viliami ‘Atelea Afeaki, we have been keeping it in motion with the plan to proceed on from 2017 to 2018, and beyond. We’re now looking for sponsors to assist in funding our new TV and Radio program.
