Samoan Feet

samovan feet

Significance and definitions of feet, translation into Samoan for feet with similar and opposite words. Yes, there are the disadvantages: the Samoan temperament, the big feet and everything from the waist down, the austere household and the fe'aus. What's the Samoan word for "foot"?

The Samoan chief - Fay G. Calkins

Anyway, she quickly learnt that the Samoans were not willing or able to capture their occidental notions of inputs equal to outputs, individual ownership or pay for work done. In spite of these annoyances and disillusions, Fay's Samoan chief's lives were fortunate and prolific among the population.

As a Samoan, how do I educate my kids in a land like Australia?

What can I do to keep cultural education intact?

Encouraging them to be proud of a civilization they only see at home or in the churches.

What can I do to lead them on their way to adult life by bringing them closer to their Samoan civilization, something they can appreciate and pass on to their young?

Living in Australia for 10 years, I have the feeling that I am able to give some good advise on this subject.

My mother was a native of South Auckland, New Zealand, and I have grown up here. Auckland is the largest Samoan town in the outside of Samoa as a consequence of the Samoan's mass migrations to New Zealand since the 1950'. The Samoans who introduced their civilization gave birth to my family. That' s why we have grown up in Samoan parishes, went to Samoan parishes, playing with our Samoan co-ins, going to schools with our Samoan boyfriends and the most of us have grown up and got married to our Samoan mates.

As far as cultural education is concerned, we had it simple. We' saw Michael Jones using the example of a Rugby gamer who won't be playing during his Sabbath; Va'aiga Tuigamala shows the violent power of a Samoan on the pitch, Rita Fatialofa wears the long-sleeved uniforms with their characteristic Hammo bends and large calf; and Jay Laga'aia s sings and plays on TV (I'm speaking here of the 90s - my own teenage years): Samoan like us!

The Samoan teachings were anchored in our daily life, so even though we didn't grow up so fluent in the English tongue, we have learnt some of the important values:

Honor your folks

Everything you do, you represent your ancestors.

Brethren: Take care of your nurses, keep them from damage.

Nurses: Serv your brethren

Place God in the first place

Keep in mind that noticing where you are on this planet, you will always be a Samoan.

Almost forward 20 years and here I am bringing up my little home in Australia. It' not so simple here for a Samoan who tries to breed little Samoans, that's for sure! They are taught the Samoan ideals we were educated by, but we are in competition with the outside underworld. I have children telling me that their boyfriends at home ask them: Why do they have to rinse the kitchen and tidy the home every day instead of just on workdays? So why do they always take their lunches from home instead of shopping in the cantina? How come Malia (my 9-year-old daughter) is the biggest in her class and the next highest? What's she got solid feet for? How come Jeramyah (my 12-year-old son) already has it? How come they're not supposed to have a boyfriend or a girl friend in college? When our Jeramyah and Malia families go out, why do they care about their four-year-old sibling? We' re going on with the playlist. It is a dare for my children to try to be Samoans when everyone around them is at our schools in Palagi/Aussie.

There' s a small Samoan congregation here in Melbourne. It' s probably not such a small number when you consider how many of us live here - but we are so far apart that it seems like we're not even in the same town. We can only do our best as a parent with what we know and have:

So, here is what TEAM GALE does:

The Samoan churches, Sunday school, youth programs, the aufaipes, Lotu Tamaiti - all these things hold my kids captive in their cultur. It is Samoan and there are moments when my kids want to go to bed during the homily (I have done this with my open eyes), but I know that in a small way what is said comes to them......albeit sluggish.

Back home my man and I are barking orders in Samoan (words like sa! ouch! and kopes! are the favorite ones). We have a Samamanic Kokolaisa (which keeps it real) KFC and McDonalds (I said "modern") diets. We also educate our children as one says graces in Samoan before they do, however, eating - their Samoan language is tied with the Australian stress so Hubby and I try not to curl our eyes Iol.

Recently I brought my 2 older kids to the aufgeaipese (church choir). I read Samoan fluently because I sing in the chorus and find my way around. It' warming my mind to see them sit up there and try. Obviously, since their mom is the choirmaster, they have no option.... of course.

So many Samoans on the global scene right now. To do our best to get our students to take part in shows or play with them: Silver Ferns, The LG North Mystics Netball Teams, The Laughing Samoans, The All Blacks, Adeaze, Cydel, Giantkilla, Deelicious, Tama Tatau - For my youngsters, seeing these gems in reality, it reinforces the faith that they can accomplish anything they want. There' re men like her who do great things on this planet, and my babies comprehend that.

Encouraging children to be proud of their inheritance. There are the disadvantages: the Samoan temperament, the big feet and everything from the waistline down, the austere budget and the fe'aus. Alofa ("love"), Fa'aaloalo ("respect") and Fa'amalosi ("strength").
