Yes and I think that is the parallel I see with Tonga, you see the Tongans were the Empire builders of the pacific, and the only pacific nation to hold it's monarchy for such a long period. Tongan's were never colonised officially and share that same, some may call aloofness as the British. I love Tonga and Tongans but on travelling the pacific other Polynesians do not quite share the affection.
