Youth at Work


Village youth are a busy lot. Here are some uniquely Samoan chores.

Sweeping the grass.

Roasting cocoa used in making Samoan cocoa.

Grating coconut meat to make coconut cream.

Chopping wood with the universal machete.

Iva in Savai'i has family connections for me.
Making jam out of mago and esi is what my Samoan grandmother was also famous for.
Malo fo'i. Ua e laei ma le malofie o Samoa.
Thank you for sharing your blog.
