Abstract:Asenati Liki looks at the migration experiences of women who were born and raised in what was once the largest copra plantation in the Southern Hemisphere – the Mulifanua Estate, in Samoa in the South Pacific. She argues that their pioneering experiences have shaped migration from Samoa to New Zealand, and their stories deserve a better place in the analysis of migration in the Pacific.
