The American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities, with funding by the Community Development Block Grant Program rebuilt the Jean P. Haydon Museum Fale Samoa, which had fallen into disrepair — the roof basically falling in.

Its dedication ceremony was held in December to cultural fanfare. It stands in front of the museum’s exhibition area and can be visited freely every day. The cultural exhibits are open for public viewing Monday- Friday.

Cool Stuff: Para Kito, Namu Bye, Bye

Just when we all thought it was safe to go back out into the World... the Namus once again made their presence a serious health issue.
 
Departing the territory last month I made sure my Savai'i daughter got every last drop of mosquito spray I had delivered air express cargo, by Polynesian Airlines.
 
The spray got there, but we were left wondering if she regularly used it?

Cool Stuff: Gear VR; The future today

Remember when Sony had a headset that plugged into your portable DVD player so you could watch virtual big screen? That was so mid 2000’s. Nice, but not really a wow factor thing.
 
Samsung’s $100 Gear DV is inexpensive because you pop in your Samsung Galaxy S6 cell phone as the guts, do an initial minor focusing… and you enjoy the future today

COOL STUFF: FIVE-0'S SAUTE "MAKUAKANE" SAPOLU

As a kid cousin Saute Sapolu would hang out at our future Cool Stuff HQ in Tulaele, Upolu with his Mom. Shy kid. Nobody knew he would be a gridiron star in Long Beach, then at college for Arizona. He got his NFL and Arena Football League shot too.
 
Saute's life has had twists and turns... with a wonderful change this week as he portrayed Hawaii Five-0 mafia godfather, "Makuakane" in this past week's episode. Cool Stuff expects ongoing recurring episode appearances.
 
Maybe Saute and fellow Samoan Taylor Wily will do battle?

The aftermath of the 2014-2015 ASHSAA football championship game last Friday was just as exciting as the game itself.
 
The motorcade from the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tafuna – where the Faga’itua Vikings defeated the Leone Lions 38-26 for the win – was fitting for a team that had brought home back-to-back championship titles for the east side.
