This Web site has been developed by a Tuvaluan for the people of Tuvalu, friends of Tuvalu and  for visitors who are always most welcome.

The Polynesian country of Tuvalu consists of nine islands located in the central western Pacific Ocean. Each of these islands of Tuvalu is both unique and individual in its origin, its myths and legends and culture.

 

The history of Tuvalu goes back over 5000 years and is a fascinating blend of myths, folklore and reality. It is something to be admired and it is something that needs to be preserved.

The islands of Tuvalu are: Namumea, Nanumaga, Niutao, Nui, Vaitupu, Nukufetau, Funafuti, Nukulaelae and Niulakita. You  are invited to visit each of these islands and to observe and appreciate the unique beauty and background of these islands and our people.

The Links to the left will be your guide to take you on a guided tour of Tuvalu.

A Chat Room has been made available for the use of all welcome visitors. Should you require further information about Tuvalu and for comments about the content of this Web site, feel free to contact me at jane@janeresture.com or use our Tuvalu Message Forum.

Thank you! - Fafetai!

TUVALU, MY TUVALU

Tuvalu, my Tuvalu the land across the sea
Surrounded by the ocean, you mean so much to me
I miss these coral atolls with gentle swaying palms
With smiling gentle people, so peaceful and so calm.

Tuvalu, my Tuvalu I always think of you
Wherever I may travel across the sea so blue
And deep inside me I know that it will be
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu you always think of me.

Your sons and daughters travel away to distant lands
They leave their homes and families so that they will understand
To study truth and knowledge in sadness and in pain, and then
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu you welcome them home again.

Tuvalu, my Tuvalu may God’s blessings be on you
To give you strength and courage to see the future through
And may our blessed people hold their heads up high
Tuvalu, my Tuvalu I will love you till I die.

TUVALU AND GLOBAL WARMING
Jane Resture
 
I hear the waves on our island shore
They sound much louder than they did before
A rising swell flecked with foam
Threatens the existence of our island home.
 
A strong wind blows in from a distant place
The palm trees bend like never before
Our crops are lost to the rising sea
And water covers our humble floor.

Our people are leaving for a distant shore
And soon Tuvalu may be no more
Holding on to the things they know are true
Tuvalu my Tuvalu, I cry for you.

And as our people are forced to roam
To another land to call their home
And as you go to that place so new
Take a little piece of Tuvalu with you.

Tuvalu culture is rare and unique
And holds a message we all should seek
Hold our culture way up high
And our beloved Tuvalu will never die.
