Samoa: Photo Feature

BY AKIELLY HU

These pictures attempt to capture the lush, tropical, and vibrant Samoan way of life, or fa’a Samoa. Many depict the family farm lifestyle, as well as traditional cooking in the umu, or cooking pit. Samoa’s culture is rich with traditional foods, church-related activities, art, dancing, and so much more. Above all, the fa’a Samoa is defined by a strong sense of family and community.
