  3. 3. …then, to Fiji!
  4. 4.  Saint Peter Chanel was martyred on the Island of Futuna in 1841. • Some of his conspirators later became strong followers of the Catholic faith.  One of these men was SULIANO TEUKE who was from the village of Lavegahau on the Island of Wallis (Uea). • Suliano and his brother volunteered to accompany Bishop Vidal as missionaries to the Fiji Islands.  The BUATAVA and YAVALA families of Lomanikoro, Rewa; the KAVENI and TUKANA families of Nasilai, Rewa; are direct descendents of Suliano Teuke.
  5. 5.  In Fiji, Suliano lived in Lomanikoro, Rewa. The ROKO TUI DREKETI heard about a ‘Wallisian’ in his village. He summoned Suliano, gave him land for a house, and made him a helper in his home. Some Tongans were also living at the village of Nasigatoka at the time.  Suliano married a Lomanikoro woman, presumably BUATAVA whose residence (yavu) was “Marakinakula”, and had 2 sons, SEVARO and WALUSIO. • WALUSIO married MELANIA from Lomanikoro, mataqali Nasimiti, yavusa Sauturaga, and had 2 sons BATITA and WALUSIO Jnr who died young. • SEVARO married ELA from Nasilai, mataqali Daunakelo, yavusa Vulagi and moved from Lomanikoro to Nasilai.

They belong to the family known as Qase Vale Levu, mataqali Naivikivai, yavusa Burenivalu, tokatoka Bure o Rewa. Their traditional role is heralds of the Roko Tui Dreketi with traditonal links to other villages around Fiji. Their plant is the famous misimisi. Their children were ABARAMO, SISILIA and RESINA
  7. 7.  ABARAMO married ELA VOSA from Nasilai, and her father was Mateo Baraiwai from the vale o Nakuna, mataqali Vuaniboro, yavusa Vulagi, while her mother was Makarina daughter of a Catechist from Nakaseleka Kadavu. • They had 5 sons: MILIKADE, TUIMATEO, SEVARO, WALUSIO, JOE KINGDOM; and 2 daughters: JOSIVINI and MAKERETA.
