Hi there I was just surfing the Net and came across this post for the name Maiava. My name is Samasoni Kupa, my mother's name is Koleta Maria Kupa nee Maiava. My grandfather (her father) is Maiava Ti'e Maiava (Matai name Maiava), he is the brother of Toileiu Maiava. There were four brother in the first marriage of Maiava Tuna. Semeatu Maiava (dec), Papa Maiava (dec) , Toeleiu Maiava (dec) ,and my grandfather Maiava Ti'e Maiava.
Maiava Faavae as far as I can remember is the brother of Maiava Tuna who is my great grandfather, and the father of the four brother mentioned above.
Robert I think you were at the Reunion we had in Auckland, and Toeleiu's daughters were there with their children. Kalila and her kids etc.
Yeah I think Maiava Tuna's mother had the Tongan blood in her. Im currently in Samoa and my grandfather likes to explain all this stuff about his family, and he even has photos.
But you all know that Maiava Tuna had 3 wives??? with a total of 22 children....
But anyways I am keen and interested in this, please email me too..... if you have any other information
my email addy is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and hope to keep in touch very soon.
