Samoa i Sisifo – Samoa i Sasa’e
..Maliu Mai, Afio mai, Susū mai..
Samoan Bios explores the lives of some of the most prominent, famous and influential people of Samoan heritage – proud sons and daughters of Samoa.
Our website is growing into one of the largest Samoan biography databases online, chronicling biographies of men and women from different professions, disciplines and art forms from around the world.
The idea of Samoan Bios started in mid-September 2011 and it was later launched online in December 2011. The reasons behind creating a website like Samoan Bios is to:
- inspire and empower our Youth of Samoan heritage to continue to seek greatness by reading about the lives of those who have gone before them in the fields they wish to pursue.
- highlight the positive achievements made by people of Samoan heritage i.e. A legacy created or world/national record set in a particular field.
- educate the young and old in Samoan communities around the world that are not aware of some of the celebrated Samoan figures in other countries.
- provide an extensive online database for all Samoan and non-Samoan visitors simply interested in the Samoan culture.
- provide a platform of positive Samoan role models for our Samoan youth to look up to and maybe learn something that could help them with their own dreams and aspirations in life.
There are many people in the world that we have admired and looked up to as children growing up, and in many cases, those same people happen to be of Samoan heritage. We ask you to join us in celebrating the success of our people who hail from the small islands of Samoa and American Samoa, and those living around the World in New Zealand, Australia, Europe, Asia to the United States of America who are featured on this site.
