dc.description.abstract The 1789-1794 voyage commanded by Alejandro Malaspina included a two week visit to Vava'u, the northern group of islands in Tonga. While unfamiliar with Tongan custom and history, the Spanish created an interesting snapshot of the archipelago at a significant time in the history of Tonga. This essay examines the nature of the ethnological descriptions and images from the Spanish visit to Vava'u and analyses what it adds to an understanding of Tonga's past during a time of immense political change. en
