Description Transcript (21 pages) of interview by Savani Aupiu with Leki Kalamafoni on September 23, 2008
Abstract Kalamafoni (b. 1984) was raised in Portland, Oregon, a member of one of the three Polynesian families in Portland. When he was eleven years old, his father took him and his older brother to live in Tonga, to be, as he says, "raised there in a humbler environment." He explains how difficult it was to go adjust to the Tongan traditions and culture. Kalamafoni spent two years in the U.S. Navy and then two years serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Johannesburg, South Africa. The remainder of the interview concerns Mr. Kalamafoni's membership and activities in the LDS church. Pacific Worlds Project. Interviewer: Savani Aupiu
