OKAY...SERIOUSLY Yama, did you start your New Year on a bad note?
There is an ongoing discussion here and what we would like to continue as a healthy non-agressive sharing of ideas,thoughts and the like.There is no need to be insulting or confrontational towards brother Tama Upolu.

TU what convinces you that the Tuifiti is samoan and not fijian? I think it depends, because there may be those Tuifiti that were just fijian, samoan fijian, tongan fijian, or lo and behold all three... lol

you know there's a popular belief that Taema and Tilafaiga never went to Fiji but brought the ato au from Manua..probably Fitiuta..who knows perhaps Fiti is an ancient name for Manu'a..perhaps the Tuifiti is really the Tuimanu'a..but it makes sense, o aku a i Savaii, o i Upolu, kaugu'u i Kukuila kei a lea ua o mamao i Fiki (Fiji)?..but some historian has to write a thesis about it..

The ato au came from Fiji, just like the ava. As the song goes, "O LE MALAGA A TEINE TO'ALUA NA FE'AUSI MAI FITI ILE VASALALOA" Vasalaloa is the great wide ocean, and Manu'a is like a next door neighbor. Also, why didn't they just say that it came from Manu'a, or Fitiuta?

that song is a recent invention..probably early 20th century..but the story, the titles and the the name places are well known..places like fagaiofu and matafa'a and titles like leiato in fagaitua and mauga in pago pago came about from these two..
again it's just speculation..leai seisi o tatou na iai i lea vaitaimi..again, a brilliant historian has to write a research about it..

The song comes from ancient legends past down from generation to generation and is widely accepted as correct, so it is not just speculation. Sure there are alot more stories about these two twins in the history of ancient samoa, but like the song goes on to say, "taunuu i gatai o Falealupo, is one of the pine faamau. You can even trace how the ato au came into the possesion of the Su'a family, they were the only ones that granted beutiful hospitality where as others disdained the girls and shunned them away, which is how the girls repayed the Su'a family for their kindness. And one more thing that we got from Fiji besides the tatau and the ava is CANIBALISM!

of course, all that is true..i was never contesting the stories the song conveys..just speculating that just maybe there's a possibility that the Fiti referred to is not Fiji as we know today but Fitiuta in Manu'a, as some tend to believe..
anyway, made some enquiries and the song is not ancient, it was coined by the Samoa Teachers College in the 1960s..the third verse goes, "Atunuu uma o le Pasefika, e sili Samoa i le tautaua.."
Pasefika is a palagi term..

You may be right for it is said Tui Manu'a Tae O Tagaloa's sister married a Tui Fiti. An altercation between Tui Fiti and his wife (Tae O Tagaloa's sister) took place in which Tae O Tagaloa sailed to Fiji when he returned to Manu'a he renamed the village of Aga'e to Fitiuta.

Come on folks, the ato 'au came from Fiti, and thats FIJI. If it came from Fitiuta, they would have just said Fitiuta, its only three more alphabets. Remember, the Ava and canibalism also came from Fiji.

Fiti-i-uta & Fiti-i-tai, Aga'e & Maia, Usoali'i & Saua, etc. O Fiti-tai ua fa'aigoa nei o le Faga (heavy a). The whole area was known as Fiti. Fiji is known as Viti. Big difference guys. Fiti & Viti. Taema & Tilafaiga are daughters of a Tuimanu'a. O le tatau, o le manifi o tamali'i sa fa'asoa na'o tamali'i, i le fa'atapula'a o le paepae valu i aga o le fafa la'ititi ei luga ifo o Aga'e. E muamua tau iai ae le'i o'o i le fafa tele. E sa'o Tevita. O le ato au na gaoia mai i Fiti, Manu'a, ae le'o Viti (Fiji). A e malamalama i mamagu o le laei, o na e iloa lea. O le fa'alavelave fo'i, na'o se tagata ua laei e malamalama ai. O mai i le mea e taua o le Aoauli, o lo'o iai le Pa-le-so'o, a le tama o a'u nei - Vaovasa. Soifua.

O le igoa o le vaimea lea e ta'u o Fitiuta sa ta'ua o Aga'euta ma Aga'etai. Na sui le igoa 'ina ua toe fo'i mai Taeotagaloa...mai Fiti...Viti....Fiji.(Samoans do not call Fiji...Viti, they say FITI.) O Taeotagaloa na folau i Fiti, ina ua 'i'ite, ua iloa e ia, ua agaleagaina lona tuafafine 'o Muiu'uleapai ma si ana tama...'o Leataata'ofiti, e le Tuifiti. Ua tuli i gauta o le vao, aua ua oge Fiti i lea taimi, ma ua magugu ma feavea'i tala o tagata Fiti, ma tua'i le oge ia Muiu'uleapai.

'Ina ua taunu'u atu Taeotagaloa, ua na ia amataina se fa'ato'aga tele lava, ua toto a'i uma mea e ona taumafa ai lona tuafafine ma si ana tama...mo i latou to'atolu...nei. O le ulu lava na fa'apelepele ma tausi iai aua ua tonu o le a tu'u lea e momolita'i ai se ta'ita'i mo le Tuifiti. O lea na alu ai Leataata'ofiti e ave le umu/ato ulu tao i le Tuifiti. Ua i'u ai ona fa'apea le Tuifiti e toe fa'alelei ma lona toa'alu ma si ona atali'i.

Ina ua toe fo'i Taeotagaloa i Manu'a, ua na ia toe fa'aigoa Aga'euta...."Liu Fiti i uta"...Fiti'iuta..FITIUTA .
