Historical Building

Samoa’s Lepea historical building reopens

Maota o Faaumuina at Lepea is the home of a significant and high-ranking matai chief title Faaumuina and is the traditional residence for the title in Lepea.

The family title has been held by important national leaders in the country's history including Samoa's first ever Prime Minister, Fiame Mataafa Faaumuina Mulinuu II (1921 – 1975) who lived in the village and whose state funeral was also held at the residence in Lepea.
