Tokelau is a non-self-governing territory of New Zealand consisting of three coral atolls in the South Pacific: Atafu, Nukunonu, and Fakaofo. These atolls lie approximately mid-way between Hawaii and New Zealand and about 500 km north of Samoa. ܬ֬ݬѬ ߬ Ӭݬ֬ ѬެѬӬݬ֬۬ ֬ڬڬ Ӭ ֬ݬѬ߬լڬ, ڬ ڬ ֬ ܬѬݬݬӬ Ѭݬݬ ج߬ Ѭ ڬԬ ܬ֬Ѭ߬: Ѭ, ܬ߬߬ ѬܬѬ.

The change in usage between Tokelau Islands and Tokelau marks a slight shift in emphasis, with consequences in regional diplomacy, in that the term Tokelau Islands clearly and substantially refers to a geographical expression, that is, a range of islands, whatever else it may connote. ٬ެ֬߬֬߬ڬ ڬݬ٬ӬѬ߬ڬ ެ֬جլ ܬ֬ݬѬ Ӭ ܬ֬ݬѬ, ٬߬Ѭެ֬߬֬ Ҭ ߬֬Ҭݬ ެ֬֬߬ڬ Ѭܬ֬߬ ݬ֬լӬڬެ, ֬Ԭڬ߬Ѭݬ߬ լڬݬެѬڬ, , ֬ެڬ Ӭ ܬ֬ݬѬ ֬ܬ ٬߬Ѭڬ֬ݬ߬ ֬֬߬ ߬ڬ Ԭ֬ԬѬڬ֬ܬڬ ֬ެڬ, ֬ ֬ݬ Ӭ, Ӭ Ѭݬ߬ ެج֬ ٬߬ѬѬ .

In the draft constitution of Tokelau subject to the Tokelauan self-determination referendum in 2006, Olohega is claimed as part of Tokelau, a claim surrendered in the same 1979 treaty which established a boundary between American Samoa and Tokelau. ֬ܬ ܬ߬ڬڬ ܬ֬ݬѬ ݬӬڬ ܬ֬ݬѬ ֬֬֬߬լެ Ѭެ֬լ֬ݬ֬߬ڬ 2006 Ԭլ, Ӭ֬جլѬ, Olohega ܬѬ Ѭ ܬ֬ݬѬ, ֬֬߬٬ڬ լѬݬ ج 1979 լԬӬ, ܬ ٬լѬ ԬѬ߬ڬ ެ֬جլ ެ֬ڬܬѬ߬ܬڬ Ѭެ ܬ֬ݬѬ.

Tokelau's claim to Swains is generally comparable to the Marshall Islands ' claim to US-administered Wake Island , but the re-emergence of this somewhat dormant issue has been an unintended result of the United Nations ' recent efforts to promote decolonization in Tokelau. ֬֬߬٬ڬ ܬ֬ݬѬ ۬߬, ܬѬ ѬӬڬݬ, ѬӬڬެ ѬѬݬݬӬ Ӭ ֬֬߬٬ڬ , Ѭլެڬ߬ڬѬڬӬ߬ ۬ , ߬ Ӭ٬جլ֬߬ڬ ߬֬ܬݬܬ ڬ Ӭ Ҭ Ҭ߬ ֬٬ݬѬ ԬѬ߬ڬ٬Ѭڬ Ҭ֬լڬ߬֬߬߬ Ѭڬ, ' ݬ֬լ߬֬ Ӭ֬ެ ڬݬڬ լ֬۬Ӭڬ լ֬ܬݬ߬ڬ٬Ѭڬ ܬ֬ݬѬ.

Tokelau is in a different time zone from most of New Zealand, being 10 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) rather than 12 hours in front, meaning a 22 hour time difference for much of the year (New Zealand has daylight saving time (DST) for part of the year while Tokelau never participates). ܬ֬ݬѬ ߬Ѭլڬ լԬ ѬӬ Ҭݬڬ߬Ӭ Ӭ ֬ݬѬ߬լڬ, ѬӬݬ֬ 10 Ѭ Ѭ֬ ߬ڬӬ֬Ѭݬ߬Ԭ ܬլڬ߬ڬӬѬ߬߬Ԭ Ӭ֬ެ֬߬ (UTC), ߬ 12 Ѭ ֬֬լ߬֬, ֬ 22 ѬӬ Ѭ٬߬ڬ Ӭ Ӭ֬ެ֬߬ ֬֬߬ڬ Ҭݬ֬ Ѭ Ԭլ (ӬѬ ֬ݬѬ߬լڬ ݬ֬߬֬ Ӭ֬ެ (DST ) Ѭ Ԭլ, ܬ֬ݬѬ ߬ڬܬԬլ ߬ ѬӬ֬).

Archaeological evidence indicates that the atolls of Tokelau — Atafu , Nukunonu , and Fakaofo — were settled about 1,000 years ago, probably by voyages from Samoa , the Cook Islands and Tuvalu . ֬ݬԬڬ֬ܬڬ լѬ߬߬ ܬѬ٬ӬѬ, Ѭݬݬ ܬ֬ݬѬ - Ѭ , ܬ߬߬ ѬܬѬ - Ҭݬ ٬Ѭ֬ݬ֬߬ ڬެ֬߬ 1000 ݬ֬ ߬Ѭ٬Ѭ, Ӭ֬߬, ֬۬ ڬ Ѭެ , Ӭ ܬ ӬѬݬ .

In May 2008, the United Nations' Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged colonial powers "to complete the decolonization process in every one of the remaining 16 Non-Self-Governing Territories ", including Tokelau. [ 22 ] This led the New Zealand Herald to comment that the United Nations was "apparently frustrated by two failed attempts to get Tokelau to vote for independence". [ 23 ] In April 2008, speaking as leader of the National Party , future New Zealand Prime Minister John Key stated that New Zealand had "imposed two referenda on the people of the Tokelau Islands", and questioned "the accepted wisdom that small states should undergo a de-colonisation process".

(See the link "LAW") In November 1974 the administration of Tokelau was transferred from the Mäori and Island Affairs Department to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. From then until September 1980, when the Tokelau administration regulations were amended, the New Zealand Secretary of Foreign Affairs was the administrator of Tokelau. New regulations then came into force whereby the Minister of Foreign Affairs was empowered to appoint a suitable person to be the Administrator of Tokelau.

A major law reform project is continuing; its purpose is to ensure that Tokelau has a coherent body of law which responds to current needs and gives due recognition to local custom. Unless it is expressly extended to Tokelau, New Zealand statute law does not apply to the territory. In practice, no New Zealand legislation is extended to Tokelau without Tokelauan consent. The villages have the statutory power to enact their own laws covering village affairs. International covenants on economic, social and cultural rights and civil and political rights, ratified by New Zealand in December 1978, apply in Tokelau.
