There is a legend about the two sons of the high chief Tagaloa from the island of Manu’a. One son’s name was ‘Avaali’i, and the other Sa’oali’i. Avaoli’i died and at his grave sprung up a plant. When Sa’aali’i visited the brother’s grave and saw that plant, he called the plant ’o le ‘a’ano a ali’i, which means,“the flesh of my brother ‘Avaali’i.”

Mafuaaga o le Ava

Ua le tasi se taofiga i le pogai ma le mafua'aga na maua ai e Samoa le ava. E taofi Manu'a o latou na muamua maua ai e Samoa le ava. O lea ava na latou maua mai ia Tagaloa-alagi ma ulua'i toto e le Tuimanu'a ma fa'asolo mai ai i Tutuila se'ia o'o mai ai i Upolu ma Savai'i.

Ua taofi A'ana ma Atua, o le ava na maua mai i le taimi o sailiga papa i le lagi tuasefulu ia Tagaloa-alagi le Atua sili o Samoa. O le taofiga la e fa'apea, o le taimi lava lea na to mai ai papa o le Tuia'ana ma le Tuiatua, o le taimi fo'i lea na aumaia ai loa ma le ava na fa'i mai le 'ata o le ava sa tu i Logopapa sa fai ai ava o alo-fisa o Tagaloa-alagi.

O Tuamasaga e lua ona taofi i le mafuaaga o le ava. Muamua o le ava e aumai mai Tonga. O le ava lea na taunu'u mai i le ulua'i taimi i Faleula ma fai ai le alofisa o Malietoa. O iina fo'i na ulua'i maua ai le tanoa fai ava a Malietoa e ta'ua o Vasalealofi. O le ava la lea sa fa'apea na ava mua ai Luatua o Saleimoa.

O le taofiga lona lua faa-Tuamasaga e faapea, o le ava na ulua'i aumai i Fiti. O le ava na maua mai le laau e foliga i ni tamatama'ilima na tupu a'e i le tuugamau o le tama o Suasami'ava'ava. O le tama nei o lona tina o le tamaita'i Vailele o Sinaafulua o le afafine o Faleaseu, a o lona tama o le Tuifiti. Na ulua'i taunu'u i Vailele le ava, ma maua ai le igoa o le malaefono o lea alalafaga o Malae o le Niniva, ina ua ai e le iole le fasi ava sa fa'ala i le paepae na niniva ai.

O le taofiga faa-Savai'i, e tai foliga fo'i i le taofi faa-Atua ma A'ana atoa ma le taofiga faa Manu'a, e fa'apea o le ava na maua mai i le lagi ia Tagaloa-alagi. O le ava na aumai faatasi ma le suafa po o le Ao o Tagaloa atoa ma ona taulauniu e valu.

O taofiga eseese ia faale atunu'u e tusa i le mea na maua mai ai e Samoa lana ava. O se itu lelei ma le taua lo tatou manino ma malamalama i ia taofiga uma, ae le o se mea tatau lo tatou faaleaga ma fa'aleaoga i se taofiga. Tu'u atu ia i le tagata lava ia po'o le fea o ia tala ma taofiga e foliga taua ma moni i lou finagalo.

My appologies ua galo le source.

You know families that keeps their gafa's a secret are usually hiding something coz it won't benefit them...that could be said the same for Manu'ans as they would be looked at in a whole different way...

Samoan Ava ceremony is a joke and pieced up fraud of their past. No such thing as Ava ceremony. It's a newly made up thing. Trying to copy Tongan and Fiji which still hold the Kava true to its own respective traditions. Quit it Samoa, you have no Ava ceremony...

Stick to your pati pati mosquito slapping dance. the palangiz find it pretty entertaining... LOL hahaha
