This project highlights the way of life on the islands to indicate the different trends that the Faa-Samoa ( Samoan Way of Life ) has encountered since we became a U.S. Territory. The Pictorial Atlas will be comprehensive enough to include a description of the origin of each village, the historical sites-if any, and significant stories from the elders on any historical event that had a major impact on American Samoa’s development as a government. Currently, this project is in its final stages of review and will be published soon. Please stay tuned.
