Tonga’s Queen will be making her first royal visit to Oahu on Friday.

Queen Nanasipauu Tukuaho is visiting Hawaii at the invitation of Hawaii’s Tongan community and alumni of Queen Salote College in Tonga.

The Polynesian Cultural Center will host a private ceremony to greet the queen.

The queen will be greeted with a special chant and by a hula kahiko from dancers at the center. Fijian warriors then will escort the queen by canoe to a welcome by managers at the center who represent different island nations.

Queen Tukuaho’s husband, King Tupou VI, inherited the throne of Tonga in 2012 after the death of his brother, King George Tupou V.
