Stevenson speech about Niue Island
Today was the presentation day of our speeches for topic. The children chose a country to share some information about. Here is Stevenson's.
Fakaalofa lahi atu the country that I’m going to talk about is Niue. This is a map of Niue, the capital of Niue is Alofi. Niue is an island in the Pacific Ocean. Captain James Cook was the first European man to sight Niue in 1774. He named Niue Savage Island because he thought that people were eating people because he saw blood on their mouths but it was just red banana skins called hulahula. This is a landmark called Matapa. Some people come here to go swimming, snorkling and diving. Uga is a favourite food among Niueans. When you catch it is blue, when you cook it, it turns red. Uga is good to eat with Taro. This is me getting a photo at my grandma’s 100th birthday. She was the first Niuean lady to turn 100 in my family. This is how you say ‘Happy Birthday’ in Niuean, Monuina e aho fanau.
