This seminal work by orator ʻAumua Mataʻitusi Simanu is an invaluable tool for the advanced study of Samoan topics, especially for Samoan students who live in the diaspora. Various topics are discussed, including the Faʻasāmoa and the Faʻamatai (chiefly system), the construction and delivery of lāuga (Samoan oratory), performing the ʻava (kava) ceremony, presentation of cultural exchanges, and other important national and local customs.
