History and the Samoan Culture

The National Park of American Samoa was established in 1988. The park took out a 50-year lease on its lands from Samoan villages, in respect to Fa’asamoa. The park protects some 3,000 years of human history on American Samoa, from ancient archaeological sites to remnants of modern history, like the World War II-era guns once meant to protect Pago Pago
