Tradewinds Hotel, American Samoa

Culture

The American Samoan culture delights visitors with its unique mixture of old ways and new. The friendly people enhance the natural splendors of the islands, making the tropical reefs more fascinating and the volcanic mountains more magnificent.

For more than 3,000 years, members of Polynesia's oldest culture have lived on the islands of American Samoa. Samoa means "sacred earth," the name reflecting the belief of the people - that the islands are a special place to be cherished and protected.
Samoans are tradition-oriented and closely follow ancient social customs - this Samoan way, or fa'asamoa is still deeply ingrained in American Samoa culture. As a visitor it is important to be mindful and respectful of local customs and traditions while visiting these enchanting islands.
