Samoa

  • This video, fa’aSamoa is a palagi’s attempt to share “The Samoan Way.” Terry and I got to spend a year on island in 1999-2000. This video is dedicated to the incredibly gracious and generous people of American Samoa.  I owe much thanks to Eileen Shinner GeorgeLynn Marshall Ashley, and Jim Civale for correcting spellings, and things I just misunderstood about Samoa.  Terry Lynn and I love the place and the people, but there is so much we still don’t understand. The music is by Upu Moni.
  • The Hampshire Review let me submit a weekly article while we were teaching on island.  Teaching Abroad in Samoa, 1999-2000 
  • Here are miscellaneous  Samoan Sites if you want more information about this wonderful island.
  • Here are images from our year on Tutuila, 1999-2000.  Click to enlarge the photo.  You can then start a slideshow.  Why don’t you click this Te Vaka song link.
