Culture and religion
Religion ("Lotu") and culture ("Aga'ifenua") are very close in Wallis. Everyday life is heavily influenced by Polynesian traditions and especially by the Roman Catholic feasts. Each village has its own patron saint. Each district has its great church. The chief cathedral is the Cathedral of Mata Utu. Almost all the people are Roman Catholic ("Lotu Katolika"), and there are numerous religious buildings on the island.
At their arrival, Catholic missionaries were welcomed by the King Vaimua Lavelua then baptized "Soane-Patita Vaimua". Bishop Bataillon developed close relationships with the royal families. As Private Councillor of Queen Amelia, he established in 1847 the Lano Seminary (the first Catholic seminary of Oceania).
Lano celebrated 150 years in 1997. The anniversary was attended by Samoan Cardinal Pio Taofinu'u, who studied there in the 1940s, and a big delegation from Tonga, Samoa, Fiji and New-Caledonia.
Wallis and Futuna was established as an apostolic vicariate on 11 November 1935 and promoted to a diocese on 21 June 1966. Caro de Segeda (talk) 20:40, 1 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. I would like to ask you whether Uvean and Futunan are two different languages or Futunan is a dialect of Uvean? Caro de Segeda (talk) 19:14, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
it's 2 different languages within the group of Polynesian languages. Uvean is closer to Tongan and Futunan to Samoan. Lea.fakauvea (talk) 21:51, 14 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Do you speak both of them? Caro de Segeda (talk) 07:34, 15 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
yes but I am not fluent in Futunan as I am 'Uvean Lea.fakauvea (talk) 15:01, 15 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Would you be able to translate this to Futunan?

Lingua Franca Nova (“Elefen”) is a language designed to be particularly simple, consistent, and easy to learn for international communications. It has a number of positive qualities:
1. It has a limited number of phonemes. It sounds similar to Italian or Spanish.
2. It is phonetically spelled. No child should have to spend years learning irregularities.
3. It has a completely regular grammar, similar to the world’s creoles.
4. It has a limited and completely regular set of productive affixes for routine word derivation.
5. It has well-defined rules for word order, in keeping with many major languages.
6. Its vocabulary is strongly rooted in modern Romance languages. These languages are themselves widespread and influential, plus they have contributed the major part of English vocabulary
7. It is designed to be naturally accepting of Latin and Greek technical neologisms, the de facto “world standard”.
8. It is designed to seem relatively “natural” to those who are familiar with Romance languages, without being any more difficult for others to learn.
We hope you like Elefen!

sorry I can't - my knowledge of the language is basic and I cannot even translate these words in Uvean. It is best to contact the Academy of Uvean and Futunan languages as they are linguists. Cheers. Lea.fakauvea (talk) 15:08, 15 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh, ok. Thank you anyways. Caro de Segeda (talk) 15:11, 15 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
