Tavuni Hill Fort is said to have been built by Maile Latamai Finau a Tongan chieftain and his followers on their arrival from Tonga via Kadavu and Serua Island a couple of hundreds of years ago. He was of noble birth and from the Tuipelehake lineage. He was good looking, strong headed and a womaniser and was banished by his father for some misdeed with a high born lady. Maile Finau left the Tuipelehake powerbase at the time which was supposed to be Lapaha in Tonga for Fiji with a band of loyal warriors and followers.
