Auckland is home to a large number of Nanumeans (and other Tuvaluans). The Nanumea community is diverse and very active. Newcomers from Tuvalu arrive frequently. There are at least five churches frequented by Nanumeans, and of course more pastors than this.
This page will reflect life among the Nanumean people of Auckland -- the youth, the sports teams, the churches, the elders -- the bigger picture.
Thanks to Siliga Tala in Auckland for information just received (4 November 2008) on the leadership of the Nanumean community this year:
