Samoa to update its cultural information

The Ministry of Education Sports and Culture is aiming to update and have more information about Samoan culture on record.

The ministry’s Culture Division will be doing a record keeping of Samoa’s cultural heritage in order to meet the demand for the information needed.

The ministry said Senior Culture Officer, Mata’afa Elia Autagavaia will be publishing in a compilation of books called Samoa Ne’i Galo- from his findings on Samoan culture.

He has been with the Ministry for over 60 years, initially as a teacher and gradually becoming the current specialist of the division.

Samoa Ne'i Galo series will include stories and legends from villages across Samoa.
