Samoa has always been under Fiji's radar. Fijians have been recorded to have sailed as far as Hawaii on a man-hunt. Highland Fijian pottery have been found as far as the Marquesas islands, which probably under the barter-system were one of the ways whale-tooth's/ivory were acquired. As ivory was prized in Fiji, it would have been a lucrative business for some. Aotearoa also came under the eye of Fiji. Infact, the legendary Maori ancestor Tawhiti was a grandson of a Fijian lady.

More on that later...
This is Fiji's influence in Samoa.

Samoan legends of the name of Manono.

1. Nono came from Fiji. He was the son of Tuilautala, king of Fiji. There came with him Sa'uma, the brother of the king, and Tupuivao, the god of Fiji. A family quarrel about a fish led them to come away. Their canoe made the land between Savaii and Upolu. The god Tangaloa came down and stood on the bow of their canoe and told them not to go to Savaii or Upolu, lest they should be trampled upon, but remain where they were. Then Tupuivao vomitted a quantity of land he had swallowed at Fiji, and so made Manono and its neighbouring island Apolima. He also appointed Sa'uma to live on the latter, and Nono to take up his abode on Manono, which they so named from Ma and Nono.

2. The chief Lautala came from Fiji on a war expedition. He first touched at Manu'a, and then came and conquered Upolu. After that he lived on Manono. He made a net, fished, and hung it up to dry. In the night a number of gods came and tore it to pieces. Lautala then attacked the gods, and drove them off with great slaughter. He could not count the number killed, but supposed them to be mano, or ten thousand, and hence the name of the island Manono.

Fitiaumua, or Fiji the foremost, is also mixed up with Manu'a history. He was said to have come from the east, was a great warrior, but conquered at Fiji, and in his lust for conquest came to Samoa. He subdued all the leeward islands of the group, reached Manu'a, and there he dwelt.

Near to the place where Faatoafe lived there are two hills, which are said to be the petrified double canoe of Lata. Lata came from old Fiji, was wrecked there, went on shore, and lived on the land still called by his name in the neighborhood of the settlement of Salailua. He visited Upolu, and built two large canoes at Fagaloa, but died before the deck to unite them had been completed. To Lata is traced the introduction of large double canoes united by a deck, and which were in use of old Samoa. Seu i le vaa o Lata, or Seuilevaaolata, "steersman in the canoe of Lata," is a name not yet extinct in Samoa; but the person who bears such a sentential appellation seldom gets more than the first syllable. As in the case referred to, the youth is known and called by the name of Seu.

Matautu is to the west of Saleaula, and is the district which takes the lead in the attack wherever war was determined on. They trace the origin of the name of their place to Tui Lautalatoa of Fiji, whose son, called Utu, resided there.

Salega is a name which embraces a considerable part of the south-west side of Savaii. Three Fijians came to Samoa, Utu, Taua, and their sister Lega. Utu took up his abode at Matautu. Taua went to a distrct farther west, now called Sataua, and Lega went to the south-west side, and from her it is called Salega.

Faleulu, or Housed-by-the-bread-fruit-tree , was so named from a party who came from Fiji by way of Manu'a and Tutuila, and who, on reaching Upolu, were benighted there and slept under a bread-fruit tree. The name Poutasi, or One-post, had its origin in this great treewhich a chief ordered to be dug up root and all, planted in the village, and made the centre post of his house.
Falelatai and Faleaseela village trace their names to the children of a couple from Fiji.

Safata is the name of the south side of the Tuamasaga. It is said to have had its origins in Sa who came from Fonaui in Fiji, and Fata of Sagana. Fata had a quarrel with his brother over the Malietoa title, and so determined to leave the family and to take up his residence on the other side of the island, and there he met his friend from Fiji. It contains a number of villages, and a beautiful salt water lagoon connected with the sea by a narrow entrance.

Laulii is the name of a villae in the east end of the Tuamasaga. A couple lived there called Lau and Lii, with a party who came from Fiji and took up their abode in the bay there which was called 'Sacred to the gods.' A large canoe was being built by three chiefs there in the bush. Lau and Lii wished to see it, as it was a very superior one, and to be called,'the canoe without a leak.' They mistook the road, wandered, could not find either the canoe or its builders, and were so angry over the disappointment that they changed themselves into two rocks which stand there, and in remembrance of them the place is called Laulii.

Falealili, or the house-of-Lili, is the name of a district on the south side of Atua. Lili was a chief from Fiji whose mother was a Samoan. He and some others were driven away from Fiji on account of bad conduct. When he came to Samoa the land had been divided, but he got his share, as the tail of Atua. He built a large house, and from this house of Lili the district was named.

Fasitoouta and fasitootai are two large villages on either side of Leulemoenga. These place trace their origin to Tapuaau,'swimming-Tapu', or, as some call him, Tooaau, which means 'swimming stick. He is said to have swam from Fiji on a to'oto'to, or in Fijian, tito'o 'walking stick'. He landed in Leulumoenga, married there, and had two sons. When they grew up he divided the wonderful stick, gave one piece or fasi/vasi, to the one son, and the other fasi to the other. The one went to the settlement nearest to the sea westward from Leulumoenga, and called it fasitootai, or 'bit-of-the-stick-seaward.' The other went farther away eastward, and called his village Fasitoouta,'bit-of-the-stick-i nland.'

Amoa is the name of a district in a northeasterly direction which protects the capital on that side. Some say that its name originated in the fort of the chief Moa which was there during the Tongan invasion; others trace it to a foreign courtship. Of old, they say the women courted the men, but now it is the reverse. A lady from Fiji called Moa came to seek a husband, and found one in a chief called Nonu, and hence the place was called Amoa, or the settlement of Lady Moa.
