In 1616 the Dutch explorers Schouten and LeMaire stumbled across the Hoorn Islands, Futuna and Alofi, in the Pacific. The rulers of each island joined together for a feast in honour of the guests, as shown here, including a kava ceremony. This was the first time Europeans had witnessed such an occasion.
