Judith Huntsman

Judith Huntsman is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Auckland and former editor of the Journal of the Polynesian Society. Her research involvement with Tokelau and Tokelauans spans over 20 years, and, in collaboration with Antony Hooper, she has published numerous historical and ethnographic articles about these tiny Polynesian atolls. A historical ethnography of Tokelau is now in preparation which combines local traditions (or accounts) and the writings of outsiders with ethnographic research to probe the differences among the three atolls, and their relations with one another and the world beyond.
