The stock map art and database contains an error.
The Horne Islands(138,157)are, in fact, Wallis &
Fortuna Islands. But Wallis Island is shown as being
at hex 142,156. That island, in fact, is Mata Utu.
Do not confuse Mata Utu ISLAND with Mata Utu TOWN which
is on Wallis. Mata Utu Island is located in the hex
indicated above.

Hoorn Islands




Hoorn Islands (Futuna and Alofi)
with Futuna Island in the northwest
The Hoorn Islands (also Futuna Islands) are one of the two island groups of which the French overseas collectivity (collectivité d'outre-mer, or COM) of Wallis and Futuna is geographically composed. The aggregate area is 115 km², and the population 4,873 (census of 2003).

History[edit]

The archipelago was named by the Dutch navigators Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire, first Europeans to visit the islands in 1616. It was named after the Dutch city of Hoorn, from which the expedition started.
