Back to what I was saying earlier... What's their to be proud of a territory? The oppressing ordeal of a foreign power taking your own land w/ out reason while you Samoans sat aside and looked? Nothing about that situation should make anyone be proud. If I were a Samoan (glad I'm not), I would never watch it and I'd boycott any history showing the take over my homelands...

But I'm glad and I'm here to say, as a Tongan, WE HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT... So I can't relate... LOL lmao hahaha

that's besides point... I'm just saying that there's nothing to be proud of, when boasting about a history of how your own land was taken away from your ancestors and they sat aside and looked... just sayin... LOL

all I'm saying is... Any true Faa Samoa proud Samoan would boycott this program/video for it is a disgrace. If you're truly a proud Hamo, you would want any of this history erased, wiped out, to save face. Quite embarrassing, if u ask me... LOL

Talofa All,
It's really important for Samoans to try and tell their own history --whether it's about the arrival of Christianity, the separation of Samoa's as a result of Western geopolitics, or of young Samoans in search of a Samoan identity in a modern world.
I'm working on a Samoan translation of Part I which is about the tragedy that took place. Was there some shame in it? Yes. But it's more shameful not to tell future generations about the courage and foresight of Samoan facing great pressures from the West including British missionaries, German businessman, and American naval powers.
To tell you the truth I'm taken aback by the hate mail. But we can't let it rule. Tell your stories my young Samoans. Listen to the elders and write poetry. Write music. Use rap if that's what you're in to. Aua le avea le loto leaga a ni isi e to i lalo lau loto Samoa.

Hi again,

I guess while I'm at it, I'll add a few comments about the state of the Samoan language in American Samoa. Overall, it's alive and well. An island survey in 2000 showed that more than 90% of Samoans spoke Samoan. Samoan is used the most in church settings (tapua'iga, aoga Samoa, aufaipese, Au Talavou, fono a Ekalesia). The next is in villages as in village council meetings or family faalavelave. There are Samoan language curriculums in the public schools. The American Samoa Community College has a Samoan Studies program with Samoan language, Samoan history, and Samoan culture being taught. The media uses the Samoan language even more than it did in the past. We have about 6 FM stations and 1 AM station that broadcast (or is it radiocast?) in Samoan. This means news, music, public service announcements, church services, and cultural announcements. The TV station broadcast news in Samoan every day with other community programs in Samoan. Are there challenges? Yes. There is more printed material in Samoan but we need more writers. There is more Samoan language on the internet too. Some parents feel their kids have to learn English to get a good job and get a college scholarship. There are attitudes about the use of Samoan when our society is getting more diverse with peoples from Asia and of kids of mixed parentage. Fai fai lemu.
