Sylvia's Special Clothes

Sylvia, whose family is originally from Tonga, brought in her traditional clothes to show Room 10.  She wears these to church and at other special occasions, such as a wedding. Sylvia usually wears a woven kiekie (belted skirt) over her kofu and tupenu.

What can you learn about Tongan culture and history from looking at the tapa designs on the back of Sylvia's kofu?
