Vaiaso o le gagana Samoa

It’s one of our favourite times of year: Vaiaso o le Gagana Samoa - Samoa Language Week 2021. This year’s theme is Poupou le lotoifale. Ola manuia le anofale - which means “strengthen the posts of your house, for all to thrive.” The Ministry of Pacific Peoples states that language and reading are important for the foundations of our overall wellbeing, and we couldn’t agree more. In this special Samoa Language Week episode of Books and Beyond, Alison and Ineka discuss the intersections of culture and identity and discover that Samoan writing and storytelling is thriving, thanks to some great community initiatives.
