Heritage of the Tatau Festival | American Samoa
Only a few wards before Tisa in 2017. Do you know that the largest American Samoa exports are Samoan tattoos? American Samoa has brought a name to Pago Pago's who-is-who tattoo scene for years of advertising the tattoo. "We' ve revitalized Tatau painting and over the years we' ve been exporting more Samoan tattoos than NFL gamers and soldiers," says Tisa Faamuli, Tisa Tattoo Fest Foundress.
The most important thing is that we are developing a tourist gadget for the troubled tourist industries in American Samoa that need help. Every year tourist and visitor come to our archipelago to make their own personal tattoo. And this year, Tisa's Tattoo Fest, is proud ly highlighting the best tattooists. Municipal performers do stunning arts not only in the paint, but their spin-off is remarkable.
Su'a Fitiao Wilson from Matu'ú is known worldwide for his tradition of tattoos by Pe'a and Malu Tatau. Today Su'a also instructs Samoan tradition at the Pacific Horizon and the American Samoa Ad-Collo. Continuing the tradition of fibre making, he taught new generation, the craft of tapas making.
Su'a is traveling around the globe to support the American Samoa arts by performing the Tatau together with his family. It was this pair of artists who gave good will to our land by spreading the arts of our forefathers with the multinational and indigenous people.
Su'a researched the skill of constructing a sailboat of our forefathers and successfully navigated the harbour of Pago Pago with the recently constructed boat during the screening of the renowned MOANA film last year. This was well accepted and encouraged by everyone on his first trip to the port of Pago Pago.
