Siapo presentation

Deliah Samarra Vaitaua Paoapo of Fitiuta (right with flag) had the honor of presenting a freehand siapo mamanu gift, crafted by the masterful tapa artisans of the Am Samoa Delegation to the 13th Festival of Pacific Arts & Culture, under the guidance of Professor of Arts and Siapo Maker Reggie Meredith-Fitiao (2nd left). Ms. Paopao donned the Flag during the presentation, symbolizing her rich Manu’a ancestry as daughter of Faresa & Fofoga Paopao and granddaughter of late Afioga Maopu Paopao Faresa of Fitiuta.
