StarKist Samoa will operate on Apr. 14 and 15, but production will shut-down starting Apr. 16 and work is scheduled to resume Apr. 21. The company is one of the two companies performing “siva” and “pese” in the April 17 Flag Day ceremony, says Michelle Faist, spokesperson for StarKist Inc.
The other company performing is Bluesky Communications, while other businesses are welcome to participate in the Flag Day parade, but should register with the Office of Samoan Affairs, said Fiu Johnny Saelua, the governor’s chief of staff.
