Does anyone know and understand the origin behind the word "faalavelave". Thanks.

Manaia le fesili,
FA'ALAVELAVE is derived from LAVE which refers to an obstruction. Samoans of today generally apply the past tense term, LAVEA to signify an incident that has happened. E.g. Ua LAVEA le tama toga ona o le malosi le pu'e o le tama Samoa. FA'ALAVELAVE in this sense, would originally mean OBSTRUCTION, keep in mind, that the term refers to many more meaning.
