Terrie Sultan to Receive French Medal of Honor
The Order of Arts and Letters was established in 1957 to recognize eminent artists and writers, and people who have contributed significantly to furthering the arts in France and throughout the world. This Order consists of three ranks: Chevalier, Officier and Commandeur. Recipients of this distinction receive a certificate from the French Minister of Culture and are entitled to wear the insignia of this order, a medal suspended from a colored ribbon of white stripes against a green background. The names of Paul Auster, Marilyn Horne, Robert Paxton, Robert Redford and Meryl Streep can be found among the American recipients of this distinction.

Samoa: The Adolescent Girl
I n 1925, Margaret Mead journeyed to the South Pacific territory of American Samoa. She sought to discover whether adolescence was a universally traumatic and stressful time due to biological factors or whether the experience of adolescence depended on one's cultural upbringing. After spending about nine months observing and interviewing Samoans, as well as administering psychological tests, Mead concluded that adolescence was not a stressful time for girls in Samoa because Samoan cultural patterns were very different from those in the United States. Her findings were published in Coming of Age in Samoa (1928), a vivid, descriptive account of Samoan adolescent life that became tremendously popular. It was published in more than a dozen editions in a variety of languages and made Mead famous. One of the reasons for the popularity of the book was that Mead had revised the introduction and conclusion of her original manuscript, adding two chapters that dealt directly with the implications of her findings for child rearing in the United States.

VOICES OF THE SAMOAN COMMUNITY INTRODUCTION Demographic changes in the Seattle area are having a profound impact on the local health care delivery system. Health care providers need to hear from ethnic communities about their experience in trying to access health care. Offering culturally appropriate care requires being open to the perceptions, realities and expectations of a community that may be different from one's own. The Cross-Cultural Health Care Program (CCHCP) in Seattle, WA works with health care providers, interpreters and community-based organizations to address these needs. Established in 1992, the CCHCP is funded by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. This "Voices of the Communities" profile is one of a series developed by the CCHCP. The profiles and an earlier survey of 22 underserved ethnic communities are part of the CCHCP's effort to provide a forum for underserved communities to interact with the health care community. These profiles were developed by and in consultation with members of the profiled community. SAMOAN DEMOGRAPHIC AND CULTURAL BACKGROUND Location and nations Samoa refers to a group of islands in the South Pacific. Western Samoa is an independent country; American Samoa is a U.S. Territory. Although there is no difference in culture between the two, there is a difference in immigration status in the United States. People from Western Samoa have to apply to become permanent U.S. residents; American Samoan people do not.

Culture change, stress, and immune function in Samoan youth
Samoans are currently experiencing an unprecedented period of cultural diversification: non-traditional legal, political, and economic institutions continue to encroach, and western consumer goods and lifestyles are increasingly available and desired. A recent epidemic of adolescent suicide suggests that these transitions may be problematic, particularly for the youth of Samoa. The objectives of this research are threefold: 1) To introduce a cross-cultural and developmental perspect- ive to the large body of western-based research in stress and immune function; 2) To evaluate new methodological tools for assessing immune function in field settings; and 3) To develop models of culture change and stress specifically relevant to the experiences of youth. A blood spot measure of EBV antibody level was developed as an immunological measure of chronic stress, and assayed in over 800 samples from 5-20 year-olds living in a range of urban and rural Samoan villages. C-reactive protein levels were also assayed to control for pathogen burden. Adolescents living in more westernized areas of Samoa, as well as adolescents from households with high levels of incongruity in aspects of social status, have elevated EBV antibodies, indicating lower immunocompetence and a higher burden of psycho- social stress. This work has been significant in introducing new methodological tools for assessing stress, and in evaluating new models of culture change specifically relevant to the experiences of youth.

Send me a Brochure Tripbuilder (Shopping Cart) Send me a Quotation ... Pacific News member of Culture Gallery Introduction ANGLONESIA Anglonesia is a neologism used here to refer to Australia New Zealand and the United States in the Pacific (ANZUS). The progress from colonialism to independence in the Pacific Islands region (both north and south of the equator) has not brought an end to the influence of the former colonial powers. Presently, there are ten territories or dependencies linked directly to an extraregional government, and five others are constrained in their foreign policies by the terms of their free associaton compacts. Like these territories, the independent states are also affected by the political, security and economic policies of the extraregional powers. There continues to be an overlap of interests between outsiders and islanders, which is likely to persist even as more island stated begin to exert their influence more and more within the region as well as globally.

    An island country of the southern Pacific Ocean comprising the western Samoa Islands. The islands were discovered and visited by the Dutch and the French in the 18th century. The eastern islands were annexed by the United States in 1899 as American Samoa, with the western islands going to Germany. Occupied by New Zealand during World War I, the western islands were later administered as a League of Nations mandate and a UN trust territory. Western Samoa achieved independence as a constitutional monarchy in 1962, and in 1997 the country's name was formally changed to Samoa. Apia, on Upolu Island, is the capital.

    Webmaster Reserve a book as of today 7/20/00 BY J. ROBERT SHAFFER Approximately 3,500 years before Columbus came to America, ancestors of the earliest Polynesians discovered a group of islands that would someday be known as Samoa. In the ensuing 2,000 years their descendants created and established Samoa's culture and way of life. The Centennial Edition of American Samoa 100 Years Under the United States Flag looks back at the century of American involvement in these islands. Dozens of Samoan cultural artifacts have been placed on these pages, illustrating particular aspects of traditional Samoan life. Many of these artifacts have never been presented before in color tableaux that give such a rich insight into the material wealth and culture of American Samoa. LOOK !!!

Historic properties from the last two centuries that are associated primarily with Samoans tend to be very much like prehistoric Samoan remains. Fortifications, ceased to be used once the European powers eliminated local warfare. Quarries were abandoned with the introduction of metal tools, and star mounds ceased to be used due to the influence of the missionaries; however, villages retained their basic structure. When the Samoan Islands were partitioned according to the provisions of the Tripartite Convention in 1899, the United States acquired the eastern islands, while Germany took control of 'Upolu, Savai'i, Manono and Apolima, whose total area is 1,120 square miles. These islands now comprise the Independent State of Western Samoa, which New Zealand forces wrested from the Germans in 1914, maintaining control of them until 1962.
