Tribute to Queen Sālote Short Film (Full Length) – 1966 News/Current Affairs

Tribute to Queen Sālote

Short Film (Full Length) – 1966 News/Current Affairs

Start video player

I find it really interesting that there was such a strong bias towards Britain in this film. Also the inaccurate pronunciations of the narrator should be addressed, as Tongans growing up needed to learn "proper" English then in return Britain or any partnering country should learn "proper" Tongan. Don't cultural exchanges need to be mutual and equitable?

While documenting the Queen Salote, it would be just as gratifying to hear a perspective from Tongans. There is a difference between an ally documenting in a shared experience such as a funeral.
