ASCC-SSI Presents Lecture on Samoan Dance

Okenaisa Fauolo-Manila, director of the Samoan Studies Institute (SSI) at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) offered some new perspectives on a familiar subject when she gave a campus lecture on Siva Samoa last week. With its lectures in Samoan, of which Fauolo-Manila’s was the third in a series, and in alignment with the ASCC Mission which includes promoting awareness of Samoa and the Pacific, the SSI aims to provide information to topics of interest to students and the public, which may or may not be covered in an existing Samoan course.
