And then amongst it all are the loveliest people in the world, moving and dancing like gods and goddesses. It is sheer beauty, so pure it is difficult to breathe it in." written by: Robert Louis Stevenson

    Fa'asamoa - The Samoan Way
    Photograph - Peter Craig The Samoan culture is Polynesia's oldest. It is believed that, the first people on the Samoan Islands came by sea from southwest Asia some 3,000 years ago. Over the centuries, distinct cultural traits emerged that we now call fa'asamoa (fah-ah-SAH-mo-ah). From Samoa, seafaring explorers and settlers journeyed to other Polynesian island groups hundreds of miles away. The concept of a National Park - particularly a park encompassing both natural and cultural aspects - fits well with the traditional Samoan way of life, the fa'asamoa . Samoans consider this island world to be sacred. Lands, waters, and food sources are managed in order to sustain them for the future. Samoan culture, customs, and traditions emphasize the importance of the extended family, the aiga (ah-ING-ah). Each aiga's lands are managed by its chief, or matai (mah-TIE), for the common good. The Samoan people welcome visitors; in fact, a stay with a family can be an important part of your island experience. See Visitor Information section for further information. Whether you are a guest or simply passing through a village, please observe these customs as a sign of respect.

    American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities
    The American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities (ASCACH) is American Samoa's state arts agency. Mission: "The American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities has the dual goal of maintaining and strengthening the vigorous traditional arts of our indigenous Samoan Culture and of introducing the arts of the broader world beyond our isolated islands. Central to both these goals is the role of arts in education and the involvement of the Underserved citizens in the smaller outlying islands of the archipelago. To accomplish the mission of the American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities is the list of our functions:
  • To strengthen the traditional culture and art forms of Samoa.
  • To expose our people to the art forms of the broader world.
  • To broaden the accessibility of the arts and arts participation both geographically in the Territory and to under-represented segments of our population.
  • To create an atmosphere that will enhance the enjoyment of the arts in Samoa.

    The Children's Mass is a special day, as big as Christmas, when all the children of the island receive new clothes and special gifts. The day is focused around the children, who round up all the adults and run the festivities, from cooking in the early morning hours to conducting services and singing in angelic choirs in all the churches. Services are conducted and songs sung in Samoan, a dialect similar to other Polynesian languages The American Samoans have a strong christian community which dates back to the days of Reverend Williams who came to the islands in the 1800s, representing the London Missionary Society (LMS). His benevolent ways, and wise counsel soon convinced the Natives to turn from their pagan worship to christianity and brotherly love. Soon after the LMS arrived tribal wars between villages stopped, and were replaced by friendly dance competitions and dugout canoe races.

    Travel Special Generally, when I think of remote areas in the U.S. National Park System, I think of the northwest Alaskan parks like Cape Krusenstern or Kobuk Valley, parks that lie above the Arctic Circle and have no road access. A relatively unknown and remote unit of the national park system is the National Park of American Samoa , located some 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii and 1,800 miles northwest of New Zealand, between Fiji and Tahiti. The only U.S. national park unit south of the equator was authorized by Congress in 1988 and officially established in 1993.

Contact us All About American Samoa
    American Samoa is a U.S. Territory, like Guam and Puerto Rico, but located in the South Pacific. ( See map. ) There are about 65,00 people living in our group of seven islands, but the vast majority of us reside on Tutuila, whose capital is Pago Pago. Over 90% of us are Samoan or part Samoan. Most of us speak both English and Samoan. We use U.S. currency, voltage and the U.S. Postal System. Due to the rugged and mountainous interior of Tutuila, most of us reside on its southern coast. Our main road, which also runs along the coast, is narrow and curvy and has a speed limit of only 25 mph! Although consumerism has managed to reach our shores and has certainly had an impact on our environment and culture, the latter has survived remarkably intact. The Fa’aSamoa (Samoan way) holds as its focus strong family ties that are strengthened through land and title ties, and through the fa’alavelave, an event which literally takes over the lives of its participants. This gathering of families which frequently occurs after a death, a marriage, a title ceremony, an opening of a new church, etc., includes gift exchanges, political displays of family clans and feasting that normally lasts 3 days to a week. Although consumerism has found its way into this traditional event i.e., bundles of bills are now found rolled up into fine mats (the traditional unit of exchange), and sodas are now served instead of coconut juice, the show of family pride, and generous spirit of this occasion remains the same.

A Reader's Digest version of my grant proposal describes my research and what I hope to accomplish during the year I am living in Samoa. Click here to read it. My research will document the performative aspects of personhood in relationship to artistic expression. The primary goal of this project is to examine Samoan dance, music, and oral poetry as a semiological performance discourse of personhood, self and other, and to investigate the cultural processes that produce this discourse.

    E-mail: Mission/Vision Statement: It is the responsibility of the American Samoa Historic Preservation Officer to administer the Territorial Historic Preservation Program. American Samoa's strong indigenous culture and traditional system of communal land ownership impose special conditions of cultural sensitivity upon such an endeavor. A primary concern of the ASHPO is to fulfill its responsibilities in manner that recognizes and honors these inherent cultural conditions. In addition, the ASHPO sees itself as a service organization, working in partnership with Federal and Territorial agencies, village and district councils, private organizations and individuals to assist in compliance with applicable Federal and Territorial historic preservation laws and to raise the community's consciousness about historic preservation and its role in cultural maintenance.

    The only American land below the equator, the territory of American Samoa consists of seven beautiful, tropical, volcanic islands and two coral atolls. It lies some 2,300 miles south, south-west of Honolulu and its nearest neighbour is Western Samoa a mere 25 minutes away by jet. Six of the islands are inhabited. Tutuila is the largest and has the most population. CAPITAL AND MAJOR CENTRES The capital Pago Pago sits on one of the most spectacularly beautiful harbours in the Pacific region. You can best admire its perfection from lofty Mount Alava.

    THE PEOPLE The Samoans, who are of Polynesian extraction have lived here for more than 3,000 years. Their culture is rich in tradition and places great emphasis on the extended family. English is the language of business and most Samoans speak Samoan and English. HISTORY The first inhabitants migrated from the west possibly by way of Indonesia, Vanuatu, Fiji and Tonga to the eastern tip of Tutuila near the present village of Tutuila around 600 BC. NATURE In Fagatele Bay Marine sanctuary the steep volcanic slopes contain some of the rarest Paleo-tropical rainforest. Large fruit bats or flying fox patrol the jungles and huge seabirds can be seen nesting on the sheer cliffs and ridges. Some 34 species of bird life had been identified. Sixteen of which are unique to Samoa.

    The Heart of Polynesia
    Paka o Amerika Samoa A third of our planet is Pacific Ocean. Away out in that undulating blueness, 2,600 miles south west of Hawaii, and 1,800 miles northeast of New Zealand appear the islands of Samoa. Anthropologists also view the Samoan Islands in terms of origins. Language links and artefacts suggest that the first distinctly Polynesian culture may have developed here some 3,000 years ago. Over the centuries that follow, seafarers in double-hulled sailing vessels stocked with pigs, dogs, and fruits spread that culture across much of the Pacific, colonizing points as distant as Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island. Pandanus leaves laid out to dry. Click on the above for a larger detailed map of Pago Pago Harbour. The United States only parkland in the Southern hemisphere was created to protect three kinds of communities under pressure from modern forces. First is the paleo-tropical rain forest, where the flora and fauna stem mainly from southeast Asia, forming habitats unique within the US park system. Second, is the Indo-Pacific coral reef, markedly richer in species than reefs in other ocean regions. Third, bound to both rainforest and reef, is the indigenous Polynesian culture. The reef in the park along Ofu is a filigreed labyrinth of at least 64 different varieties of corals, from azure-tinged mushrooms to chartreuse vases. Boulder corals hundreds of years old bulge as big as whales. One type of staghorn coral resembles stalagmites rising from a tabletop.
