A note from the Rock about his grandmother

In the Samoan culture, we have a very special dance called the “Taualuga” where the woman dances and she is honoured by the men who dance around her out of love and great respect.

On my grandmother’s 80th birthday, she danced her Taualuga while I proudly danced around her while she laughed and beamed with pride.

She had the greatest 80th birthday and her smile was from ear to ear.
