Malo Kit KatI was talking to my older sister on Christmas day in regards to this topic. She confirmed that Queen Salote has samoan blood and went on to vaguely explain to me, her husbands family connection to the tongan royal blood line.
She said that her husband (who is full samoan) is a descendant from the AMA clan. To this day their family get invited to The Tongan Royal family events.
I did a little bit of research and found this on Wikipedia Haha which a lot of it is in reference to Kramer.
AMA CLAN were renowned great samoan warriors. This is an brief outline of the Ama clan lineage, up to the Tongan Royals Connection.
Ama Alovave married Fautua who bore a son Ama Fiame.
Ama Fiame married Salefale Lupeaupepe, who gave birth to Ama Tauaituatasolo.
Ama Tauaituatasolo married Luafaletele who bore Ama Lele.
Ama Lele married Soli'ai a daughter of Tui Manua. Soli'I gave birth to son Ama Paseta & daughter Tohu'ia Limapo.
Tohu'ia Limapo married the 6th Tui Ha'atakalaua of Tonga. Tohu'ia gives birth to Ngata, Tui Kanokupolu.
The Ama clan are descendents of the Malietoa Family they hail from Safata which is the village of Fata hence the name of the village:
Sa = Sacred/Clan also can mean center
Fata = Samoan warrior who was the brother of Tuna
The literal translation of Safata means the Clan of Fata etc....
* Whats so interesting about the migration of Samoans via Amalele and his warriors etc to Tonga is that this migration is remembered by many Tongans and is very detailed such as the places they landed and places they lived new lineages created by them and so forth.
I posted this video before but just in case people werent paying attention. This is a video of Malietoa Tanumafili II funeral. Now when you watch it, in the beginning the guy in all black explains the Tui Kanokupolu's/Tupou Dynasty's origins and connections in relation to the Malietoa Family.

* You will hear 2 names Pulepule O Solosolo ma Ama mai Safata. Pulepule of Solosolo is a Samoan Chief and Ama Of Safata is another Samoan Chief, the Tui Kanokupolu line descends from Ama/Tohuia of Safata and connects to Pulepule of Solosolo as well.
