East-Leeburg (Bavanda: Pepei ’U’a) is the capital of Washington Island and the only settlement the island has. It has 10,000 inhabitants and is the only city in the nation that has a Tongan majority. It also has most American inhabitants of any nation in the country. It's considered the most beautiful town of the Harvian Islands. There are many monuments and old buildings. The scenery around the town is fantastic.
The city was built in 1198. The founder of the city was Hari Venlo Aloha, a Samoan chieftain with viking roots who sailed to Washington Island all the way from Hawaii after having previously traveled north all the way up to Canada. He even crossed the Bering Street and visited Russia and in his old age, he settled on the island and raised a family of whom many famous historical chiefs and tribal leaders descent. The settlement, initially known as Hakanuii was later conquered in 1892 by Buck Leeburg (1852-1907) who renamed the village and gave it his family name.
In 1907 a revolt broke out and all Leeburgs were either killed or fled the country. Washington Island was the first island to gain its independence, albeit for a short period of time. As of 2010, the mayor is Philip Bradly-Lashawn a politician known as a member of the Samoan Power-movement. He is known for his dislike and criticism of the American ways and their culture.
