We've all heard of old Samoan dances of war such as the 'Ailao and the Sate/Sake. But does anyone know what this dance is called??


It looks very similar to a Tongan war dance called the Taufakaniua. Can this be a clue. What I mean by that is the Niuas are very close to Samoa as opposed to other Tongan islands.

I'm curious about a dance known as the Ma'omalie. I'm not sure if it's a war dance but I do think that it's from 'Uvea or Futuna, as they have a dance known as the Makomalie. It's also known in Tonga as the Mako.
