During your visit to Samoa, make sure to check out our Samoa Tourism Authority Cultural Village. This is located in Apia behind the STA Information Fale. Here, you will see how samoan food is prepared, how fire was made before lighters came about, how to climb a coconut tree, traditional tattooing, cultural dancing, weaving, and you even get to sample the food. The Cultural village is open on selected days, so be sure to pop into our STA information fale for further information.

This photograph of a young Hawaiian girl dates from near the end of the nineteenth century.
