A member of Roggewein's expedition described the natives in these words:
" They are friendly in their speech and courteous in their behavior, with no apparent trace of
wildness or savagery. They do not paint themselves, as do the natives of some other islands, but
on the lower part of the body they wear artfully woven silk tights or knee breeches. They are
altogether the most charming and polite natives we have seen in all of the South Seas."

new internationalist
issue 222 - August 1991 Western Samoa enjoys a relaxed Polynesian lifestyle - albeit not exactly the ‘free love’ nirvana portrayed by anthropologist Margaret Mead - which conceals its earlier fate as a victim of colonial chaos, extravagant even by exotic South Pacific standards. Predominantly Protestant missions were established in the last century, before traders arrived. Then the arrival of traders, chiefly British, German and American, in stem competition coincided with a recurrence of traditional tribal conflicts. The traders persuaded their respective consuls to side with different high chiefs, and in 1889 seven warships from three navies lay anchored in the harbour of the capital, Apia. Six were sunk or damaged in a cyclone, epitomising the apparently providential nature of the cause of a free Samoa. Finally, though, Germany annexed the west, the USA the east (still a US territory), and Britain sailed away - leaving the writer R. L. Stevenson, who had migrated there for his health and is buried on a hill overlooking Apia bay. New Zealand took Western Samoa at the outbreak of World War One. Samoan nationalism was most strongly manifested in the Mau movement in the 1920s, finally violently suppressed. The country became independent in January 1962, since when it has been ruled by its

Artists continue to practice a variety of art forms for their own use, including the production of bark cloth and mats as well as the creation of nonfigural wood carvings such as bowls and headrests. What figurative sculpture is produced during the first half of the century, however, is almost universally made for sale. In the decades after World War II, as part of the larger global movement toward decolonization, parts of Polynesia achieve independence, including Western Samoa, Fiji, the Cook Islands, and Tuvalu. Others, such as the Austral, Tuamotu, Marquesas, and Society Islands, as well as American Samoa, remain under the authority of other nations or, as in the case of Hawai'i, become formally incorporated into them. Beginning in the 1970s, many Polynesian peoples, particularly Hawaiians and Maori who live among the majority settler populations of their original homelands, become increasingly active in asserting their cultural identity and seeking greater political autonomy. The same period witnesses a wider renaissance of Polynesian culture and art across the entire region. Some artists devote themselves to rejuvenating or reviving indigenous traditions such as wood carving and the making of bark cloth. Others use Western materials and techniques, integrating them into their own artistic and cultural traditions to create distinctively Polynesian forms of contemporary art.

73. Creating Balance: Samoa Struggles To Find An Equilibrium Between Ancient

Creating Balance: Samoa struggles to find an equilibrium between ancient healing techniques and modern medical practices by Nora Rogers As an undergraduate student, I traveled to Samoa with the School for International Training not long after the Apia workshop. During my time there, I conducted a research project focusing on the practice of traditional medicine in Samoa and the possibility of integrating it with Western medicine. Protecting Traditional Medicine Samoan traditional healers have largely acquired their knowledge of medicinal plants and herbal remedies through oral teachings. This poses a growing problem, as the tradition of orally passing on information is fading fast, and minimal knowledge has been documented. Fortunately, some scientists in Samoa recognized what was happening and launched an effort to preserve traditional medicinal knowledge. A fund created ten years ago by Land Grant College in American Samoa is one example of the protective initiatives they helped generate. Under the direction of three Americans, the project is developing a medicinal herb and plant garden with species indigenous to American Samoa. The garden gives visitors a chance to view the numerous plants in various stages of growth and to learn both the scientific and Samoan names of each plant, as well as their common medicinal properties and traditional uses. There is also information on the history of medicinal plants and important healers, past and present, on the American Samoan island of Tutuila. The garden offers organized tours for children, teaching them about the medicinal plants that are native to the island.

By Susan Kreifels
Star-Bulletin He sat at the side of the empress of Japan during the emperor's coronation and next to the queen of England when Prince Charles married. Malietoa Tanumafili II, head of state of Western Samoa, is the second longest-reigning monarch in the world next to the queen of Norway. But it's his humbleness that draws the love and respect of Samoans around the world. "I see myself as the servant of the people," said the 85-year-old head of state. He speaks in soft Samoan, his hands tracing his words in the air. Tanumafili is here as the guest of the Polynesian Cultural Center and will preside over next week's fire-dancing competition. The Samoan community in Hawaii has honored him at a dinner as well as Gov. Ben Cayetano. He has reigned for more than 50 years and served as head of state since 1962, when Western Samoa became an independent nation and joined the British Commonwealth.

Reporting: Summary
Exercise 1
As part of an essay, you need to include a section of about 100 words on the advantages and disadvantages of progress from the Samoans' point of view. You find the following text: Progress in Samoa
The sound of progress frightened Sasa. For most of his 50 years time has stood still. Now small European-styled homes are springing up around his village in Western Samoa and the young men are leaving for New Zealand. In the town there are experts from all over the world advising the Samoan Government on many development projects that Sasa does not understand.
The people of Luatuanuu Village - including his eight children - have always worked the banana plantations and respected the custom that the Matais (family chiefs) like Sasa represented absolute authority.
The confusion Sasa feels is shared by many of the 150,000 Western Samoans - and undoubtedly by the peoples of other newly independent, developing nations as well. The capital, Apia, is teeming with people wanting to help: an 80-member US Peace Corps headquarters, experts from the United Nations, investors from Japan, analysts from the Asian Development Bank and civil engineers from New Zealand.
Western Samoa has travelled a long way in the 12 years since independence. It has political stability and a people who are 90 per cent literate. It offers investors a cheap labour force, and a land that is 80 per cent uncultivated. It offers visitors the most uncorrupted Polynesian culture left anywhere today.

Basic Information
American Samoa is an unincorporated and technically unorganized territory of the United States. It is "unincorporated" because unlike Hawaii and Alaska during their years as U.S. territories, not all provisions of the U.S. Constitution apply to the territory. American Samoa is an "unorganized" territory because Congress has not provided the territory with an organic act, which would organize the government, much like a constitution would. Instead, Congress gave plenary authority over the territory to the President of the United States who has delegated this authority to the Department of the Interior. The Secretary of the Interior in turn allowed American Samoans to draft their own constitution under which their government functions. American Samoans are not United States citizens. They are classified as United States nationals and have freedom of entry into the continental United States. Many Samoans have served with distinction in the U.S. armed forces.
