The history of Oceania refers to the general history of New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Australia and Fiji among other Pacific island countries. Among the Oceania cultures, I would prefer to stay in the Tonga culture. The kingdom of Tonga is situated at the west of the International Date Line in the eastern part of Fiji. One factor that makes this culture unique is that it is the only Polynesian country that was never colonized by the Europeans. Additionally, this culture is the only monarchy culture in the Pacific Ocean. Basically, the fact that this culture was not colonized has not affected its development but rather has helped in maintaining the traditional or historical developments of this culture. A point worth noting is that, the kinship ties of this culture places women at a more privileged position as compared to men which means that a man will be outranked by his sister irrespective of his age in accordance to hers. As a result of this it becomes a taboo for a man and his sister to be in the same room all alone.
