Abstract:

"In this ... account of growing up in Tonga, Helen Morton focuses on the influences= of ana fakatonga ("the Tongan way") in all facets of Tongan childhood from the antenatal period to late adolescence. Childhood is a crucial period when cultural identity and notions of tradition are constructed, as well as beliefs about self, personhood, and emotion.
