Title

  • Traditional Dance from American Samoa

Summary

  • Join us for a conversation about Samoan dance and culture. The Samoan Studies Institute at American Samoa Community College formed the Students' Association For Fa'asamoa (SAFF) in 2009. It is comprised of students at the college who are interested in learning about Samoan culture. Its purpose is to teach college students the Fa'asamoa, or the Samoan way, and to preserve its traditions. Since its inception, SAFF has been active in performing the Siva Samoa (traditional Samoan dance), and in teaching and practicing ancient Samoan customs.
