Mary Pritchard Tapa

In 2009, the University of Hawai’i Hamilton Library received a donation of an original Samoan Siapo created by the late renowned tapa artist, Mary Pritchard, from Joan Griffis of Oregon. To the far right, a display donated by Le Fetuao Samoan Language School of Honolulu explaining Samoan siapo making was given to the library to accompany Mrs. Pritchard’s piece.
