The samoan culture is centered on RESPECT. Self respect, respect for your elders, and respect for your neighbors. It has elements a hospitality, in the sense that we share our blessings with everyone else. We know that as Samoans, we should never be without a roof over our heads, because our family is always looking out for us. We work hard for what we have, and even if we fall, our FAMILY is always there as a safety cushion.

TeineSamoa you go girl! E ese mamao lava itu ma aga o tagata Samoa from that of tagata Asia (Japanese). As much as i love Japanese culture and people but its far from the sense of a real "homey feeling" thats evident in Samoan families. It really isint like that in Japan. So i agree with you selau pasene! Samoan culture is unlike anyother!

I've seen some similarities between the Samoans and various other Asian cultures (maybe I've been watching too many Chinese and Bollywood movies lol):

1. You leave home only when you're married.
2. Family comes first.
3. Respect for your elders (especially your parents)
4. Your own culture comes before your adopted country...

and many other things that I can't remember right now :P

Yes many of these early "Gods" were worshiped in old Polynesia.

Tagaloa - from tha Sa Tagaloa clan in Samoa.

Atua - from tha Sa Tui Atua clan in Samoa; ruler of Atua. Atua now translates to Gods.

Tupua - from tha Sa Tupua clan in Samoa. Tupua translates to Idols.

Aitu - translates as spirits.
