Meleika Gesa-Fatafehi is a storyteller, poet and literature and film critic whose ancestors hail from Mer (Murray) Island, from the Zagareb and Dauareb tribes (to name a few), and Fahefa, Tonga. She loves talking about all things nerdy, rapping and creating, as well as decolonising spaces online and in real life.
An excerpt in The Guardian claimed to have discovered the story of the "real Lord of the Flies". It erased the voices of the boys themselves and the Tongan values and knowledge systems that prepared them for survival.
