This presentation explains the cultural values and social significance of faikava from a Tongan female’s perspective. Tongan woman kava use is a present although often hidden and controversial practice. Because of this, Ikanamoe’s presentation was picked up and reported on by the media (http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/330400/drinking-kava-becoming-popular-with-tongan-women).
