It is comprised of students at the college who are interested in learning about Samoan culture, and its purpose is to teach college students the Faasamoa, or the Samoan way, to preserve traditions. Since its inception, SAFF has been active in performing the Siva Samoa (traditional Samoan dance), and in teaching and practicing ancient Samoan customs. This event features SAFF students performing traditional Samoan dances under the direction of Molitogi Lemana.
