The Independence Committee for Samoa’s 50th Anniversary celebration has invited two fautasi teams from American Samoa — those which placed first and second during American Samoa’s Flag Day race earlier this month.

Aeto from Pago Pago Village won the race, with “Nu’uuli” from Nu’uuli Village taking second place.

In an interview with Samoa News, Co-Chairman of the Independence Committee Tolofuaivalelei Falemoe Leiataua said the invitations have already been sent to the office of Samoan Affairs for the two fautasi crews.



Territories fail to block cuts on Medicaid funding

A unified voice from U.S. territorial governors and delegates failed to block Republicans from reducing Medicaid funding for the territories.

Invention Contest encourages innovation

The ARRA Student Workers, a subsidiary of the Student Government Association (SGA) at the American Samoa Community College, staged an imaginative promotion of energy saving earlier this week with an Invention Competition open to the College’s student clubs.

Participating clubs were asked to come up with an invention that demonstrated an efficient use of energy, and the resulting entries confirmed that all it takes is imagination and ingenuity to use familiar materials in unfamiliar ways which can result in energy saving.
