Each of the atolls is a ribbon of tiny motu (islands) surrounding a lagoon. The atolls of Tokelau have been populated by Polynesians for about 1000 years, and traditional tales link the original settlers with Samoa, the Cook Islands and Tuvalu. There are approximately 500 people on each of Tokelau's three atolls. Well, there is a lot to tell, but what would you like to know? We will guide you around with some photographs and that's about it.
