Fa'a Samoa - the Samoan Way! Samoa is a traditional Polynesian society with Fa'a Samoa playing a vital role in village and community life. Samoans are proud of their strong Fa'a Samoa - which means 'the Samoan Way'. It is the essence of the Samoan culture and dictates how Samoans are meant to behave and their obligations to their elders, superiors, family, community, church and the environment. There are over 362 nu'u or villages in Samoa with a total of 18,00 matais (chiefs). Churches of various denominations feature in every village while meeting houses and open fales or homes encircle the malae or village green. Fa'a Samoa has a strong focus on welcoming visitors making Samoans friendly and hospitable hosts. However, Samoans expect their guests to observe and respect local customs. For a quick insight into Samoa's culture and traditions, visit the Samoa Cultural Village today. « less

If you are a lover of art Vanya can show you paintings, prints, cards and sculptures from some major Pacific artists. Pacific art collectors or just art lovers we have prices that can suit your budget. If you want a stunning hand-carved bowl or wooden household object to take as a memory of Samoa we boast the most sophisticated and detailed carved objects in Samoa. They make wonderful gifts for weddings, birthdays and corporate gifts. If you want a personal memory of your trip buy a fabulous hand carved pendant made from local materials. No pendent is identical, and you can choose from trochus shell, whale bone, black coral, mother of pearl and marlin bill. We also stock funky Pacific necklaces which are high end fashion pieces and make quite a bold statement. The owner of the gallery appreciates the gallery is a short drive from town but how else can you experience art and creativity in a beautiful setting surrounded by tropical flowers, trees and in the personal setting of the artist and gallery owner herself Vanya Taule'alo. All visitors are welcome Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10am - 4pm or if these h ours don't suit your schedule ring Vanya to make a time that does. « less
