Welcome and Talofa
With the Samoan population consistently growing throughout the World, social norms influence the expectations of how we adjust, communicate, and mirror similar perceptions or experiences of the Fa’a Samoa way. Given other dominating and influential cultures developing normalcy within our Samoan communities here in America, we owe it to ourselves and our future, to take on these occasions to connect and appreciate one another’s background and differences, distributing to more than just our individual stories, but our Samoan story.
Whatever our individual interests, experiences, and stories, it will be emphasized using those same lessons, to amplifying our walk of life. Even those discouraging individuals who lost connection and seeking guidance to obtaining an understanding of cultural values here in America, as a Samoan.
It is our duty as Samoans to foster this understanding and promote such fortuity in the Samoan culture, and truly connect to our cultural values, traditions, and roots. Samoan Connect is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the US. Our mission is to engage, encourage, and support the longevity of the Samoan culture, language, and its people. We are determined to provide the appropriate tools to advance our culture and strengthen our connection with ever-changing times.
Get engaged with your Samoan community by participating in engagement activities, discussions on Samoan traditions, culture, language, wear, music, sports, interests, etc. emphasizing what’s trending and affecting the Samoan culture today.
“Where are your parents from”? “What part of Samoa is your family from”? “Where are you from”? These questions are typical conversation starters and in fact, common to wonder where you came from or who your ancestors were and where they came from. Researching into our ancestral lineage can reach back through centuries, possibly across the seas towards different continents. Whether major or minor your role is, or whatever the involvement, the research we undertake will involve us personally in reliving those eras while discovering new and exciting facts about ourselves, ancestors, and culture.
Get insights and guidance on what is expected in the Samoan traditions and culture based off similar location, revenues, experiences and testimonies. Information chat, FAQ, along with commentator section will be available soon.
