Sample text

Even if political title and social rank conferred different types of power (Bott 1982, 56-59; Mahina 1992, 168-74), it is clear that processually, political and social power overlapped in the politics of the chiefly stratum. There was a built-in ambiguity in the relationship of social rank to political rank which limited the concentration of political power (Biersack 1990; Bott 1981,1982; and especially Gailey 1981, 1987) within any particular chiefly group and its associated title(s). At the highest levels of the Tongan polity this ambiguity was resolved to some degree by the custom of removing the children of the Tu’i Tonga Fefine from the title system through the marriage of Tu’i Tonga Fefine to foreign chiefs, more specifically, to members of the fale fisi, a royal house derived originally from Fijian high chiefs and thus tu’i in rank, but somewhat removed from contention for the central titles of the Tongan polity (see Bott 1982; Gailey 1987; Kaeppler 1978; Mahina 1992, 177-78).

By the late eighteenth century, only district chiefs were nominated from the ranks of chiefly people: all others were titled, but non-chiefly mata¯pules. (1987, 81) While this is almost certainly an overstatement (that is all others were not non-chiefly mata ¯pule) which grows from a lack of understanding of the Social Structure and Organization — Contact and Early Post-Contact Period / difference between mata ¯pule and motu’a tauhifanua, it does suggest that a process of incipient class formation was occurring;24 the mata ¯pule titles associated with the royal lines were historically and ritually held to be of foreign origin (Biersack 1990, 49, 52; Bott 1982, 66;25 Mahina 1992, 166-67).

26 Within the ka ¯inga of a local chief then, were fa’ahinga headed by men holding titles in some way related to the chief ’s title. The relationship of the other fa’ahinga to the title-holding chief were conceived of in terms similar to that of the bilaterally constructed kindreds of individuals. The relationship between the ’eiki and the ’ulumotu’a were conceived in kinship terms, the terms referred to the relationship between the titles, not necessarily the individuals holding the titles (Bott 1982, 69-70).
