We sing about the beauty of Lakena and Nanumea -- wonderful melodic songs from the heart. Here we feature some of the wondrous aspects of Nanumea's natural world. This is a fragile atoll environment, tough, salty, humid. But it is rich in plant and animal life, fellow Nanumeans living on the land made by Pai and Vau.
Additional photos coming Soon...
