Samoa Cultural Village

Fa’a Samoa—the Samoan way of life—runs deep, dictating behavior and obligations to elders, superiors, family, community, church and the environment. Located behind the tourism authority’s information kiosk, the village showcases this heritage with demonstrations on weaving, woodworking and the making of siapo (bark cloth), and you can also see traditional dance, music performances and tatau (tribal tattoos). Guests can also enjoy a ritual ‘ava ceremony and lunch, including palusami (young taro leaves in coconut cream) and fish grilled on an umu (earth oven).
