User Contributions: 1. Nathen Laita-Leatutufu. This article was a great source of info. It is always great to read, or hear about our Culture.

Any idea thanks Pierre. I have just recently met a Samoan man in Michigan. So I am learning online as much as I can about the culture.

He is so very gentlemen like and has unbelievable charisma! Beautiful culture! Those people are lucky to live half way between the comfort of American influence -justice, health- and still enjoying the Great Nature with the well-know native respect toward.

Malo li uso e. Fa'afetai lava mo le information. Thank you for posting it up in the first place. I am a youth writing an article about White Sunday and I was trying to find as much information about the history of White Sunday.

I am a Samoan girl who knows the meaning of White Sunday. Anyway, thank you and let's not forget to keep Samoa and the other southern islands that have been hit by the tsunami in our prayers.

Fa'afetai lava ma manuia le aso. This is a very nice article. By the way, Manu'a is spelled wrong, however overall it is pretty good I really enjoyed reading about our culture its nice to know that people in the mainland are able to read about our culture.

I hope its something to be read and not to misjudge us on our doings. But other than that it helped me a lot with what I had to research.

Seuta'atia Faumuina Iosia. American Samoa was rich! Proud to be samoan! This article is fabulous and amazing. Im doing my project about our culture and I found this website and it really helped me for what im doing for my I-search paper.

Im so happy that i read through all of this info about our culture. Thanx anyways for this good info about the Samoan history and culture. I never knew that about land sales being outlawed.

Missing home and did a search that brought me to your site. Thank you for handling the information of our island with respect.

The description of raising children made me nostalgic. As a very young child, I remember falling asleep in the shade while my grandmother worked on the lawn.

Great memories :. Lilly Rosa Tauala. Oh my gosh! Samoa was so great in the past. Believe it or not American Samoa is great. Because there's not much supplies or shelter for every single one of us but American are helping.

Us Samoan are under United states of American. Its great that these information have brought it out to us Samoans so that we could know what to the past.

Surely we know about samoans but not much at all. Thank You reseachers. Irene Fa'atupuinati. The article sounds so tremendous The way we live is the way we think I want to know why does cultural and beliefs are revelant to the highset rate of obesity in American Samoa?

Lovely summary of the peopel and culture of Samoa. Can any one volunteer and help me get a link person to discuss cultural relationship with "Samoa" I would be so happy for your support.

Thank you. We were told to study a pacific island country and i was given this country american samoa to study and present on it.

I am fascinated with the culture of the Samoan people. I am a retired superintendent of schools from districts in California.

My son was employed as an athletic trainer by the Los Angeles Ram's professional football team before they moved the franchise to St.

He became quite close to several Samoan players from Brigham Young University who were trying out in an attempt to make the Ram's roster.

He was invited to the Samoan celebrations and remained close to the players for many years. He often talks of the passion and warmth of the Samoan people and families he met during those years.

He is now a physician and often speaks of his desire to visit Samoa. Since retirement, I have traveled extensively and most recently worked as a non-medical volunteer for Operation Smile in Cebu City, Republic of the Philippines.

I have recently authored a book titled Delia's Promise available through Lulu. I was concerned that the fishibg and cannery industries are closing and it will possibly create a serious employment and economic void in the Samoan population which already suffers a low family income dilema.

Combined with the closing of these industries and a recent tsunami, the country appears to face serious economic, educational and societal issues.

I had a vision tonight. Please understand that I am not a radical zealot in any manner of my life's experience, but I was greatly impressed with the values described on the programming tonight regarding the deep respect young people had for their families and elders and the warmth and devotion of the people presented by the Sixty Minute producers.

My so-called vision included the potential opportunity to parley the high visibility of Samoan college and NFL players and the excitement they produce among American sports fans to bring to Samoa an industry of recognition, support and funding of educational opportunities for Samaon youth.

If those franchises were contacted with the proposition of participating in the funding of schools, playing facilities and equipment for the development of Sasmoan youth,, with the advantage of having these franchises recognized by the Samoan people for their generosity and support of the Samoan people, those franchises very well might become the recognized agencies and organuzations that promote not only the support and develpment for the remarkable athletic talents of the Samoan young men but also recognized for the creation of good physical facilities to support all athletic activities for Samoan youth but also the enhancement of acadimic programs in the public schools of Samoa.

The natural evolution of such a relationship of these NFL franchises and Samoan youth would create a loyalty of the the franchises to recruit the talents of future NFL Samoan football players.

Importing excellent teachers and staff to work in Samoan schools has great potential. I serves as a personnel officer in public schools and I am experienced in the recuiting of teachers and administrators.

I am also an avid sports enthusiast and I have received awards and recognition for my work with our students here in California. It is my intention to visit American Samoa very soon and I would be interested in meeting anyone in the administration who would be willing to meet with me to discuss these ideas.

From such dreams and ideas often comes progress and hope. I am not interested in any remuneration for my efforts, just an exciting personal interest in the process of creating a synergistic opportunity which just might result in enhanced opportunities for the young people of American Samoa.

Sincerely Peter Shaw. It is always such a thrill to refresh or to learn much more about our humble beginnings of our People, Culture as well as our Religious beliefs.

We are definitely a "Proud People". Faafetai and a BIG faamalo to you for this article, I enjoyed reading through how our Samoan culture and how it became a true survivor in the past.

May the good Lord bless you with all the good work you have done. Hi, I am doing an research about the loss of the samoan culture. What are three ways people are loosing their culture?

Elders and guests are always served first; children and the women often eat later. With changes in work patterns, three meals daily are now typical.

Most restaurants on Tutuila specialize in American and other foreign foods, but a few offer more traditional Samoan foods. Food Customs at Ceremonial Occasions.

Foods served on ceremonial occasions include daily fare plus whole pigs, potato salad, chop suey, puddings, cakes, and ice cream. Palusami coconut cream bundled in young taro leaves has become a treat for special occasions.

A great quantity of food is served at special events, with guests being expected to eat a portion and take the rest home to share with their households.

Kava , a nonalcoholic, mildly narcotic drink, is served to chiefs on ceremonial occasions. Basic Economy. In this traditionally agricultural country, only farms "plantations" produced for family consumption in and produced crops for sale.

Two-thirds of these farms have less than five acres. Imports include food, fuel, raw materials for manufacturers, building materials, and mechanical equipment.

About 56 percent of families live below the poverty level. Land Tenure and Property. With the exception of small amounts of government and church property, most land is owned by Samoans.

Traditionally, communal ownership was by 'aiga and was controlled by the matai. This remains true for much land. Some whites married to Samoan women acquired individual ownership of land before the s, when the U.

Navy outlawed land sales. A cruise ship moored at Pago Pago. Visitors to American Samoa help boost the local economy.

Individual land purchases now are restricted to persons with at least 50 percent Samoan blood. Commercial Activities.

Most commerce is based on the sale of imported products. The most common retail trade establishments are places to eat over and grocery stores nearly , particularly small family-owned general stores.

Major Industries. The largest industry is fish processing and canning, with pet food as a by-product. Canned tuna, shipped to the United States, accounts for 94 percent of exports.

There is also a garment industry, whose products represent 4 percent of exports. Division of Labor. Age is an important determinant of work roles, with young people engaging in strenuous activities while the elderly play a more sedentary, supervisory and educational role.

Children have household responsibilities while leadership roles are given to middle-aged or older persons. In the past some people had specialized skills in building traditional boats and houses, fishing, and medicine.

Classes and Castes. There is no true class system in American Samoa. Chiefs' titles are ranked to some degree based on centuries old traditions. These titles belong to specific families 'aiga , and some are ranked higher and are more respected than others.

This is primarily significant ceremonially and determines seating in the fono village council and the order in which kava is served, but all have an equal opportunity to speak.

Any male can aspire to be a matai, since titles are acquired through a democratic process of election by their aiga.

The governor and lieutenant governor are elected by popular vote for a four-year term. There are two legislative bodies: a Senate of eighteen chiefs matai , selected by the paramount chiefs of each county, and the House of Representatives, with one member from each of twenty-one legislative districts, chosen by popular vote.

American Samoa is represented in the U. House of Representatives by a nonvoting delegate. The government is funded in part by local taxes, but the United States provides over 60 percent of funding through grants.

Leadership and Political Officials. Village leadership is the function of the village council fono , made up of the matai of each household.

One becomes a matai through service to the family, knowledge of Samoan customs, and personal qualities such as diplomacy, intelligence, and speaking skills.

Higher education, experience dealing with non-Samoans, and economic success may also be important. Political campaigns for higher offices may involve American-style rallies and fund-raising events, and candidates for governor tend to identify with the Democratic and Republican parties.

Social Problems and Control. A police department handles routine law enforcement, and the legal system is similar to that of the United States.

An attorney general is responsible for criminal prosecution, environmental enforcement, consumer protection, immigration, land disputes and disputes over chiefly titles.

The High Court has nine judges, including the Chief Justice. The most common crimes are disorderly conduct, assault, burglary, driving under the influence of alcohol, and property damage.

Sexual offenses and murder are relatively infrequent. A group of Samoan men prepare an earth oven for use. In traditional Samoan culture, men were responsible for daily cooking and preparation of special events.

They leave Samoa for training and service. The Department of Human and Social Services administers federally funded programs that include disability services, foster care, child care subsidies and provider training, drug and alcohol counseling, and vocational rehabilitation.

The largest programs provide nutritional education and assistance to the elderly and the WIC Women, Infants and Children program for low-income women and children up to age five.

Villages often have an organization of chiefs' wives. This "women's committee" entertains important visitors and raises money for causes such as equipping village medical clinics and church schools.

Untitled men in villages are organized into a cooperative work group called the aumaga that has important ceremonial and labor responsibilities.

It is called the "strength of the village," and the leader usually the son of a high-ranking chief , functions ceremonially as the "village prince," the manaia.

The aualuma is the organization of unmarried women and widows. It engages in communal labor activities, entertains guests, and its members serve as attendants to the "village ceremonial princess," the taupou.

Division of Labor by Gender. Before the transition to a cash economy, men were responsible for heavy agricultural work, fishing, and house construction.

Young men cooked much of the daily food and did the cooking and serving at ceremonial events. Women's activities included sewing, weaving floor and sleeping mats, laundry, child care, and later cooking with modern appliances.

Nursing has long been an acceptable role for women. Many of these traditional roles continue today, but new options are important. Men and women now work in tuna canneries, banks, stores, tourist-related businesses, and the school system.

Men work in construction, transportation, shipping, and government agencies. Imported rice is unloaded in Pago Pago.

American Samoa imports many goods, including food, fuel, and building materials. The Relative Status of Women and Men. Historically, Samoa has been a male-dominated society.

Women exert a great deal of behind-the-scenes power. Professional and authoritative positions are held mostly by men, but women occupy important roles in some government agencies and businesses and in some cases serve as matai.

Young people choose their marriage partners, but marriage is primarily an economic alliance between families.

In earlier times, high chiefs' sons married high chiefs' daughters, and lower status couples often eloped.

One cannot date or marry a blood relative. Nearly everyone marries, usually in the middle to late twenties, and weddings involve elaborate gift exchanges between the two families.

Divorce is rare, but remarriage is fairly common among younger people. Domestic Unit. The household averages seven people and consists of one or more nuclear families and some collateral relatives.

It tends to involve three generations and is flexible in composition. The occupants are related through blood, marriage, and adoption. After marriage, couples settle either in the household of the bride or the groom, each of which is headed by a matai.

All social and economic activities are under the control of the matai, who is usually a male. Kin Groups.

The largest kin group is the 'aiga, which includes all individuals tracing kinship to a common ancestor. This extended family may have households in different parts of a village or in several villages.

The matai of these households exercise various levels of authority within the 'aiga. Matai are members of the village council fono which is a regulatory and decision-making body for the community.

A matai settles family squabbles and makes decisions about the family's financial contributions to weddings, funerals, and church donations.

The entire 'aiga interacts primarily at weddings, funerals, elections and installations of matai, and family emergencies.

Infant Care. Infants receive a great deal of affection and attention and are held and carried during the first year of life.

The household usually includes a grandmother, who often serves as primary babysitter. Babies are fed when hungry and sleep where and when they doze off.

Child Rearing and Education. Young children are supervised by a grandmother or other women in A high school auditorium in Utulei, on the island of Tutuila.

American Samoa offers educational programs for preschool children, as well as universal public education through high school. From an early age, obedience and respect for age and authority are encouraged.

There is an educational program for preschool children and universal public school education through high school. There are a few parochial schools.

Higher Education. American Samoa Community College on Tutuila offers associate-level degrees. Most students major in liberal arts, teacher education, and business.

Some students attend college in the United States. About seven percent of the population age twenty-five and older have a bachelor's or more advanced degree.

Samoans are meticulous about courtesy, particularly toward the elderly and holders of chiefly titles. One does not stand while others are seated, and if one enters a room where others are sitting on the floor, it is proper to bend slightly and say "Tulouna" "excuse me".

A respect vocabulary is used when speaking to chiefs. Reciprocal courtesy and etiquette are characteristic at ceremonial and political events.

Religious Beliefs. Before the arrival of missionaries in , Tagaloa was recognized as the creator of the islands and their people and matai served as family religious leaders.

Known today as the Congregational Christian Church of American Samoa, it ministers to fifty percent of the population, while the Catholic Church claims twenty percent and Mormon, Methodist, and Pentecostal churches serve the remaining thirty percent.

Samoans are faithful churchgoers and generous supporters of village churches and pastors. Religious Practitioners. With the exception of the Catholic Church, which usually includes a few Caucasians among its leaders, most denominations have Samoan religious leaders.

Rituals and Holy Places. Church services follow Western rituals, and choral music is an important element.

Most villages have at least one church. The dedication of new churches is of supreme importance and involves feasts and choral competitions A village council meeting of chiefs.

In American Samoa, village leadership is the function of a council made up of the chiefs, or matai, of each household.

The second Sunday in October is White Sunday, when church services are conducted by children, who sing, recite Bible verses, and present plays.

All wear new white clothing. After church the children are served a meal at home featuring special foods.

Death and the Afterlife. Death is viewed as being "God's will. Until the s, funerals were the day after death. Developments of mortuary services allows delayed burial to accommodate overseas relatives.
