Old losses to one end of the collar and to the edge of the head are a reminder that these beautiful objects were once used in warfare. As in Fiji and Samoa, it was customary to name weapons which 'had done much execution' (ibid.), and so the demonstration of a club's mana led it to be attributed with 'a kind of personhood.' (Mills, 'Akau Tau: Contextualising Tongan War-Clubs, 2009, p. 15).
