Found urn may hold someone’s ashes
An urn that was found more than a year ago in water in the Faga’alu area IS thought to contain someone’s ashes. It has been brought to the Jean P. Haydon Museum, where it continues to be housed.
Rex Yandall of the Haydon Museum asks anyone if they recognize the urn, to please stop by at the museum.
Today is the final day for the Arts Fiafia 2013 that is taking place at the museum in Fagatogo, hosted by the American Samoa Council on Arts, Culture and Humanities. The event celebrates various Samoan cultural art forms and is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. This year’s event is recognizing artists with disabilities.
There are demonstrations of siapo-making, elei (fabric printing), flower arranging, weaving, samoan handicrafts, wood carving, visual arts, ula making and more.
Yandall invites the public out to view the art work, which will be on display from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. today.
