43. Bank Of Hawaii - Western Samoa Economic Report - Tourism
The next step at this stage of tourism development in (western) samoa is to is detrimental to the traditional culture, are implicitly at an impasse.
    In 1992 tourism was 4 percent of GDP (value added) according to AusAID. In first-half 1996, gross earnings attributed to tourism were 41 million tala according to ANU. At annual rates, tourism's contribution of 82 million tala in 1996 would amount to 19 percent of an estimated 428 million tala GDP. If this projection is fulfilled it will indicate that tourism plays a much greater role in the economy than previously understood. Samoa's main attractions are its scenic landscape, many white sand beaches and the feeling of authentic tropical experience sought by those tourists who go to the more remote Pacific islands. All these attributes notwithstanding, the further development of tourism into a large source of income requires adequate air lift and suitable infrastructure on the ground—hotels, restaurants, sports facilities, cultural exhibits and other forms of entertainment that add to the experience of a vacation trip. Also of critical importance is the hospitality tourists receive. The more popular and lucrative destinations are those that can attract repeat visitors. With Polynesian Airlines' financial problems resolved, the carrier and the Western Samoa Visitor Bureau can now focus on marketing Western Samoa, both as a destination and as a place where overseas investors will find a receptive market to invest in commercial facilities. Air New Zealand, with weekly links to both North America and Europe, also serves Apia, and some of the area's smaller airlines connect Western Samoa to other markets in the area such as Fiji. It is possible that the expansion of tourism elsewhere in the region (the French territories, for instance) will lead to a travel network in which tourist bookings are shared and multi-country visits are promoted, enlarging the Australian and New Zealand markets and opening new ones in Asia, North America and Europe in the years ahead.

Physical Characteristics
    Part of a small group of islands just east of the international dateline, the independent state of Western Samoa consists of two main islands and seven smaller ones. Together these total 1,150 square miles of land (2,934 sq km) concentrated almost entirely in the islands of Savaii with 700 square miles of land (1,820 sq km), and Upolu with 430 square miles (1,100 sq km). Only two of the seven smaller islands and islets are inhabited. Because the country's land area is small and the islands are close together, Western Samoa's exclusive economic zone is the smallest in the South Pacific, roughly 45,000 miles square (116,500 sq km). Apia, the capital, is located about half way up the north coast of Upolu, lying 2,800 miles (4,500 km) east of Sydney, Australia, 1,500 miles ( 2,400 km) north of New Zealand and 80 miles (130 km) northwest of American Samoa. The high volcanic islands of the Samoas have rugged interiors mostly covered with dense rain forests. Some volcanic peaks on Upolu rise to more than 3,600 feet (1,100 meters) and Savaii's Mt. Silisili rises to well over 6,000 feet (1,860 meters). About 40 percent of Upolu and 50 percent of Savaii are characterized by steep slopes descending from volcanic crests, and flat land, mainly along the coasts, is in relatively short supply. In relation to its population, however, Western Samoa has considerable land area that can be used for growing crops and raising livestock. Subsistence agriculture remains the economic mainstay.

Formerly known as Western Samoa. Not to be confused with American Samoa (wholly different!). Independence was granted in January 1962, and in 1995, Western Samoa became the Independent State of Samoa. It consists of two major islands, Upolu and Savai'i, with a population of approximately 161,000. 115,00 of those live on Upolu, and about 35,000 of those in and around Apia, the tiny capital. 97% of the population are Samoan, the remaining 7% are Euronesians. Many people speak English, helping to make Samoa is an easy and welcoming place to travel to. WHY GO The islands are surrounded by both stunning white-sand beaches and craggy volcanic coastline with blowholes, lava tubes and some great surfing. The humid tropical climate makes for an amazingly lush rainforested interior, filled with high jungle peaks, craters, and waterfalls that thunder into crystal-cool pools.

47. Western Samoa - History
samoa, it seems, was the cradle of the Polynesian culture, of change on theculture and society of samoa was the arrival of the (western) missionaries.
In 1768, French navigator, Louis de Bougainville, sighted the islands of Samoa calling them the "Navigator Islands" because he encountered many Samoans sailing small canoes far from the sight of the land and assumed they must be good navigators. By the late 1700s, European traders were plying the Pacific and around 1800 ships began to call at Samoa for supplies. By the early nineteenth century, some Europeans (i.e. escaped convicts, seamen and whalers) had settled in Samoa. However by far the greatest impact of change on the culture and society of Samoa was the arrival of the Western missionaries. The strong influence of the missionaries and their teachings, have made the Samoan people devoutly religious right up until today, with much time and resources devoted to church activities.
After the arrival of the missionaries and European traders, vast plantations producing copra and cotton were developed for export, and Apia soon became a major commercial centre in the South Pacific. But, by the late 1800s, internal strife amongst the Samoan chiefs, and power struggles between the then present opposing colonial powers of Germany, America and Britain, led to a period of instability. However, by 1899, after a treaty was signed by the three colonial powers, Western Samoa was annexed by Germany and the country prospered until Germany's expulsion by New Zealand forces at the oubreak of World War One. New Zealand administered tenuously thereafter, but Samoan discontent, headed by the Mau movement, and a desire for self government led to a referendum in 1961. In January 1962, after overwhelming support for freedom from foreign rule, Western Samoa became the first independent island nation in the South Pacific.

Photo courtesy of Bob Baxter, Skin and Ink Magazine Based on archaeological, botanical and linguistic evidence, it is believed the first settlers in Samoa arrived around 3,500 years ago. These settlers probably came from Indo-Malaysia and continued to spread to other Polynesian islands including Hawaii, Tahiti and New Zealand. The first European to come in contact with Samoans was a Dutch Navigator name Jacob Roggeveen in 1722. However, little was known of Samoa until the London Missionary society arrived in 1830 on a ship called Messenger of Peace under John Williams. Christian faith flourished and within a few years Western influence had a strong impact on Samoa and brought fundamental change to the old culture. Toward the end of the 19th century, Britain, Germany and the United States were competing over Samoan territory. In the 1899 treaty, Samoa was divided between Germany and the United States.

By the Treaty of Berlin of 1899, the United Kingdom and Germany renounced in favor of the United States all their rights and claims over the eastern islands of Samoa. This treaty went into effect on February 16, 1900. On April 17, 1900, the matai (chiefs) of Tutuila formally ceded the islands of Tutuila and Aunu'u to the United States. On July 16, 1904, the king and matai of Manu'a ceded the islands of Ta'u, Ofu, Olosega, and Rose Atoll to the United States. Congress formally ratified the 1900 and 1904 deeds of cession retroactively in 1929. Swains Island became part of American Samoa by joint resolution of Congress in 1925. Political Status
American Samoa, an unincorporated and unorganized territory of the United States, is administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior. It is "unincorporated" because not all provisions of the U.S. Constitution apply to the territory. The Congress has not provided the territory with an organic act, which organizes the government much like a constitution would. Instead, the Congress gave plenary authority over the territory to the Secretary of the Interior, who in turn allowed American Samoans to draft their own constitution under which their government functions.

- Aug, 1997 Issue #47 Why Western Samoa for
Adolescent Programs?
By: Jodi Tuttle , Educational Consultant St. George, UT Taking students out of their environment and placing them in an unknown culture creates instant impact. Wilderness programs have been doing this successfully for several years. Anyone who has traveled in a foreign country realizes that it is necessary to refocus at least some attention to maintenance when experiencing a new culture. This environment in Western Samoa takes teens into a setting that is beautiful, tranquil, and conducive to change. The Samoan culture is well known for a strong family emphasis, respect for authority, and genuine care for others. John William Hart’s SAMOAN CULTURE gives us an idea of the diverse personality traits between people of the US and Western Samoa.

They all tried to sell us Fiji. It's easy to get there, developed, the flights are cheaper than elsewhere and you can do plenty of water sports. For some reason we didn't like the sound of it. We wanted to see the real Polynesian culture and get away from the honeymoon resorts which are so famous. We therefore chose to go to Western Samoa and we made an excellent choice. When we got to the airport, we got our first insight of the Samoan culture. Samoans are big but really big. Some of them are so big that they didn't fit into their seats or were given the belt extentions that are normally for women with babies. Second thing they take their time. The plane took off late as somebody was late. I guess that the pilot waited as it's known that Samoans take their time. Third thing, they wear sweet necklace, which may explain why they are so big. Finally, it's common to bring up a boy as a girl. You see a lot of guy's dressed like women in the streets. Isn't all this interesting?

The People of Samoa
by Samoa Koria,
San Diego, California
In 1995, the Pacific Islander community of San Diego held its first major community festival - more than 60,000 people came to the two-day festival, July 22nd and 23rd.
Organizing to overcome a perceived inviability of Pacific Islander people in San Diego, Chamorros, people of the Cook Islands, Fijians, Guamanians, Hawaiians, Maoris, people of the Marianas, Marshallese, people of the Federated States of Micronesia, Samoans, the Tokelau, Tongans, and others came together to put on this historic event.
With the theme of Hokule'a-Ho'oku'i I Ka Pakipika (Bridging the Pacific), the festival was a vivid expression of the Pacific Islander people's history, culture, arts, crafts and cooking. Central to the festival was the visit to San Diego of the Hokule'a ship (photo above) - a symbol of exploration among Pacific Islanders.
The festival received a lot of support in San Diego city and county and has lead to steps towards Pacific Islander empowerment including the establishment of various new organizations and the placing of Pacific Islanders on city and county commissions.
After the success of this first festival the planning of the second festival is well under way. The following article about the Samoan people was written by Samoa Koria a member of the education committee of the 1995 festival and was chair of the 1996 festival.
