Mālō te maʻuli! Welcome this week to the territory of Wallis and Futuna, in the South Pacific Ocean. This Polynesian country has a local government and three kings (or chiefdoms), and is an overseas collectivity of France. There are three main islands in two groups: the Wallis Islands (Uvea) and Hoorn Islands (Futuna). Wallis and Futuna was settled at least 3,000 years ago! Let’s check out a few images below.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s edition of The Painted Atlas! See you next week in a new location.
All the best,
