Sāmoa (Moana Oceania Series)
Sāmoa author Dahlia Malaeulu provides a comprehensive overview of life for Samoans in the islands and in New Zealand, with her English text translated into Gagana Samoa by Tapaau Auvaa (the book includes a section on language basics).
An important feature is its explanation of Fa’asāmoa, the fundamental values of Samoan life, including connection to ‘āiga (family), nu’u (village), land and religion.
Illustrated with full colour photographs and illustrations throughout, and numerous boxes of information to make the text easy to access, these first entries in the Moana Oceania Series bring the South Pacific closer to all of us.
This title is part of the bilingual Moana Oceania Series.
