AbstractIn this article the author examines the sharing ideology and practices of the Tonga, and the extent to which these have changed since the beginning of the last century with colonialism, the coming of the railroad, and the introduction of cash crops. The author finds that while sharing continues among matrilineal kin, there is conflict between matrilineal groups related to husband and wife respectively over control of land and its produce. The introduction of the plow and oxen have given men and their matrilineal kin more power than in the past over household labor and property.
