(1) WARRIOR GODDESS NAFANUA’S VICTORY OF THE FOUR PAPA TITLES. Tui-Atua, Tui-A’ana, Gatoaitele, Vaetamasoalii. – (EARLY: 1500AD)
The Royal Title Tui-A’ana:
There were two Tuia’ana in Leulumoega. But what they used to do in those days in Leulumoega was to take good victuals to Saga’ate, meanwhile they brought bad ones to Tamalelagi. So Tamalelagi said to So’oaemalelagi Levalasi: Go to Savai’i to Tausunu and Tauasotasi, say to Nafanua to feel pity for our distress; good food is taken only to Saga’ate, while they bring us two only bad things. So So’oaemalelagi Levalasi went to Savai’i. Nafanua answered: Come and go, and in five days will start a war. Do it! If the war ends well, establish the government, give me the title but let no Tupa’i(Vaililigi) live there, for you are the ruler. And so Tamalelagi’s warrior troops came. The battle raged, Saga’ate was defeated and the rulership remained with Tamalelagi. However that title was removed by Nafanua, and Tamalelagi remained behind. He had no title, only his sovereignty as he went about in all of A’ana.

The Royal Title Tui-Atua:
Then a message came also from Tuiatua Foganiutea. Would Tupa’i(Vaililigi) come; that war was raging between the two of them, him and Tuiatua Fogaolo’ula. Tupa’i again answered: I will first go and talk with Nafanua about Tuiatua Foganiutea’s complaints. So Nafanua spoke: Go and start a war. But if you win, set up the government in Pulema’ava, and Tupa’i is to stay there to make it the sanctified seat of the Tuiatua. Here also war broke out. Tuiatua Foganiutea was victorious while Tuiatua Fogaolo’ula was defeated. Here, too, the title Tuiatua was taken by Nafanua.

Note: After the two wars for The Two Royal Papa Titles of Tui-Atua, and Tui-A’ana by Nafanua and Tupa’i(Vaililigi), So’oaemalelagi Levalasi’s brother.

The Gatoaitele Title:
Then news came from Gatoaitele to bring support troops, that war was raging against Malie. But Tupa’i(Vaililigi) answered: I will not until i have heard Nafanua in Salafai. And so they went to Savaii, and Tupa’i spoke to Nafanua. Nafanua answered: Go, fight a war, I discussed the matter long ago with Gatoaitele. If our side wins, set up the government in Tanumafili, and Tupa’i is to stay there to give answers to Tuisamau’s speeches. Let Tuisamau speak first in Malie, while no fono is to be opened by Auimatagi. And so the battle raged; Malietoa and Auimatagi were defeated while Gatoaitele and Tuisamau were the victors. The title Gatoaitele was also taken to Savai’i by Nafanua, while only the victors paraded around in Tuamasaga.

The Vaetamasoalii Title:
Then came the cry from Satunumafono to Tupa’i(Vaililigi) for him to bring help in the war between them and Alataua. Also here Tupa’i said: First i have to hear Nafanua if she wants this or not. So Tupai went to Savaii and reported to Nafanua Satunumafono’s complaints and pain. Then Nafanua said: Go, let war rage; if you are victorious, set up the government in Niusuatialemanu, and Tupai is to stay there and watch over the government and see to it that Satunumafono conducts itself properly. And so the battle raged, Alataua was defeated while Satunumafono erected its government. Then they took the title Tamasoalii to Nafanua in Savaii and the victors of the Satunumafono went around in Alataua. To these victors went Imoa in order to maintain a counter balance for Alataua. That is why here the people spoke first of “Imoa the pito lua o Satunumafono”.

Then Nafanua honours So’oaemalelagi Levalasi(descendant of Nafanua, and founder of le “Aiga Sa-Levalasi”) the four high Titles and send Tupa’i(Vaililigi) to take the Titles to So’oaemalelagi Levalasi in Leulumoega so that her word be fulfilled which she spoke to establish the government in Leulumoega by the name of I’u mai Papa (the return of the Titles). But Levalasi answered: My soul feels a great love for my child, and she wish to bestowed the Four Titles to her niece and adopted daughter Salamasina. And so Salamasina received the Four Titles and became the first Queen Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa.
(So’oaemalelagi Levalasi are first cousins with Salamasina’s father Tuia’ana Tamalelagi that he married for the tenth time to Salamasina’s mother Vaetoefaga, the daughter of the Tui-Toga. And for Tuia’ana Tamalelagi’s eldest son- “Alii o Aiga” name Tuala from his first marriage was the founder of le “Aiga Sa-Tuala”)
Note: from here on, thus the Samoan traditional saying “Aiga e lua” stands for (1) Le Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi, (2) ma le Aiga fa’alagilagi o Samoa Le Aiga Sa-Tuala.

Queen Salamasina Combined in her Ancestry all the Aristocratic lineages of Samoa: Tui-A’ana, Tui-Atua, Tui-Manu’a, Tagaloa, Lu Fasiaitu, Tonumaipe’a, Vaetamasoalii-(Sanalala & Gatoaitele’s daughter), as well as Tui-Toga, Tui-Fiti, Tui-Rarotoga, was succeeded in a direct line of descent by a series of Tuia’ana from her father’s.

The Royal Family Genealogy Succession Line held to the Titles from Queen Salamasina-(Held to the Four Titles as the First Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa) – Tuia’ana, Tuiatua Fofoaivaoese – Tuia’ana Tuiatua Taufau and Sina – Tuia’ana Tuiatua Faumuina le Tupufia – King Fonoti-(Held to the Four Titles as the Second Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa).

(2) THE WAR OF LE TUPUFIA, THE PAEGAUO WAR FOR THE FOUR PAPA TITLES: Tui-Atua, Tui-A’ana, Gatoaitele, Vaetamasoalii. – (MID: 1600AD)
One of the early kings was Tuia’ana Tuiatua Faumuina Le Tupufia. He had three children. The sons were named Fonoti and Vaafusuaga Toleafoa, and the daughter was named Samalaulu. They are Known commonly in traditions of Samoa as “The Three of Faumuina”. Each child was by a different mother, but Tui’aana Tuiatua Faumuina before he died, he did not declare a decree for a successor to rule on the throne. And intimately, this is why his three children, Fonoti, Samalaulu and Vaafusuaga Toleafoa entered into war to fight it.. the dispute was also taken up by their maternal relations that became so intense that war was raged to who will be King. And began the arise of famous family clans of Samoa such as Sa-Tuala, Sa-Levalasi, Sa-Asomua, Sa-Tago, Sa-Amituanai, Sa-Tunumafono. This is also why their father, or the Title “Faumuina” is greeted as “Le Tupufia”. Tupufia; means or referred to of his children that they all wanted to be King!

The distribution in the war was about as follows:
With Fonoti: Fagaloa, Faleapuna, Falefa, Saluafata, Solosolo, Vaimauga, Faleata, Safata, Falealili, Fasito’o-uta, Falelatai, Manono, half of Lufilufi and of Leulumoega.
On the side of Va’afusuaga Tole’afoa and Samala’ulu were: Aleipata, Luatuanu’u, Lepa, Lotofaga, Siumu, Faleula, Sagana, Sale’imoa, Faleasi’u and Samatau, half of Leulumoega, and also all of Savai’i island through Vaafusuaga Toleafoa’s influence.

The end result of the “War of le Tupufia” between Fonoti and his step brother and sister, was that Samala’ulu and Tole’afoa were defeated while Fonoti was the Victor. And the Four High Titles was bestowed on to Fonoti as King Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa. Then so Tole’afoa was taken to the island of Tutuila. The orator who was in exile with Toleafoa was Alipia Tausi mavaega. He lived on the island with the Chief.

APPOINTMENT OF KING FONOTI’S GOVERNMENT:

The All Samoa Fa’alupega-(The Great Honours of All Samoa) by King Fonoti’s Government since 1600AD. This Fa’alupega recognized the Authority and Identity of Principal Districts of Samoa, and through their spokesmen: – Tulouna a Tumua ma Pule, Tulouna Itu’au ma Alataua, Tulouna Aiga i le Tai, ma le Va’a o Fonoti.

Te’o: – O oe o le Anava o Taua, Ma lou Manu Samoa.

Ole Va’a o Fonoti: – Samamea, Maasina, Lona, Taelefaga, Salimu ma Maauga, Musumusu, Falefa, Sanone, Gagaemalae, Saleapaga, Sagapolu, Falevao, Sauago, Saletele, Uafato, Lalomauga, Manunu, Faleapuna, Lufilufi, Saluafata, Fusi, Salelesi Safanua, Fagaloa, Solosolo, Luatuanuu.
Tumua o Asiata: – O le a Falefa Tumua ia te oe (Sailiga Malo o Asiata ia Fonoti).

King Fonoti also brought the Title Mata’afa from Faleata to Atua. The trade was with Tiufea which King Fonoti changed his name to Manulele’ua after their game on flying the pigeon, and that Faleata will have the title of his father Faumuina. The titles Manulele’ua and Une which are high ranking orators in Vaimoso Faleata were created due to this exchanging of the two “Ao” Titles. Mata’afa the “Ao” Title of Faleata was taken to Atua by the King and gave his fathers name or Title Faumuina to replace the “Ao” Title of Faleata.

King Fonoti authorised the separation “Va-i-Mauga” of Lufilufi the Tumua and the Palace of Mulinu’u Lalogafu’afu’a Sepolata’emo, and appointed “Poloai” the six house of Lufilufi as the messenger between Lufilufi the Tumua and the Palace of Mulinu’u Lalogafu’afu’a Sepolata’emo for all communications first before any meeting to take place.

The Va’a o Fonoti District; comprises the village of Faleapuna and the sub district of Fagaloa, Safanua in the region of Atua became the naval war fleet in Fonoti’s war of succession “The Vessel of Fonoti”. People in these places not only sided with Fonoti but their fleets also contributed greatly to Fonoti’s victory. And for the part they had played in the dispute and for contending with Manono, Sapapalii and Saleaumua in the fighting that took part on the sea. In reward King Fonoti Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa designated them an Independent Political District In Its Own Right.

Aiga I le Tai District; comprises the villages on the small island of Manono and Apolima, and their associated villages along the north western tip of A’ana district, some sided with Fonoti and some sided with his kin Va’afusuaga Tole’afoa and Samala’ulu. King Fonoti Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa designated these villages an Independent Political District In Its Own Right. – thus the political district Aiga I le Tai, literally family on the seaward side.

King Fonoti also granted Ulualofaiga complete power over Fagaloa District and in addition he gave Ulualofaiga the village of Amanave in Tutuila. This village is controlled in this manner right down to the present day and The Authority as Recognised by the American Government. Fonoti also conferred honours on Tofaeono, Aiono, Misa and the privilege of receiving food on Faleata. Le ava a Faleata e favalaaui, o Faleata o le Itu Autasi ia Lufilufi ma Leulumoega ma Tuisamau. And the saying; O le sola a Faleata e sola ae vave mai. Additional honours given by King Fonoti – Faleata, already under Atiogie called Faleoo O Faiga Malo. Chief Aiono na tofia e le Tupu Tafa’ifa o Fonoti e tali ona lafo (toga) i so’o se mea fai a Samoa, O le Laaufausia – the chief Aiono of Fasitoo-uta may accept mats from Public Ceremonies as he is entitled to do so by Ancient Authority of the King Fonoti. Atamaioalii; is the Personal Servant of Tuia’ana appointed by King Fonoti. It is said the first Atamaioalii came from Manulega, a former inland village near Palauli. Since he served well and skillfully, King Fonoti said, you can eat my things because you served me well. King Fonoti’s food was tabu for others. King Fonoti also honoured his in-laws Fenunuti and Leatuavao as the Matua of the Sa-Tuala Family; – Fa’afetai Fenunuti ma Leatuavao i lo oulua Fa’aeaea, o lea ia amata atu ile aso nei, na avea oulua ma Matua Mavae o Le Aiga Sa-Tuala. King Fonoti rewarded and conferred many more other honours upon those Chiefs and Districts that had fought for him and such honours and privileges are honoured by the Tumua and Pule down to the present time.

Appointments by Fonoti’s sister Samala’ulu from the same war for:
Alipia: – O le matua na togi.
Tanuvasa: – O le itulua i ai o A’ana.

And then the Satunumafono people came to get Toleafoa and Alipia in Tutuila. So the ship arrived in Aleipata; Fonoti, who sojourned in Mulinu’u in Lufilufi, heard that the Satunumafono people were bringing their son Toleafoa. Then the King wanted to see to it that his throne might not be overthrown again. So Fonoti said. to Atamaioalii: Friend, come and climb across to Aleipata, tell Toleafoa to come quickly, otherwise we will perhaps not see each other again, for I am weak in my sickness..

Atamaioalii went and said to Toleafoa: I came so that you might go to the kings sickness, he is very weak. Then said Toleafoa: I cannot; go back quickly, I am not going. Then Atamaioalii returned and said to the king: Toleafoa is not coming, he is angry. Meanwhile Toleafoa and Satunumafono went to Falealili. And Fonoti spoke once more to Atamaioalii: Come, go again, tell Toleafoa to come, for I am very weak in my sickness. If he does not come, we will never see each other again.

And so Atamaioalii went again and said to Toleafoa: I am here again by order of the King. Would you come to his sickbed, he is weak. If you do not come, you two will not see each other again. Then Talo in Falealili spoke as follows: Toleafoa, come, go to the sickbed of the king, so that you two will see each other once more. And so Toleafoa crossed the mountain range because Talo and Satunumafono wished that Toleafoa went so that he might see the King once more on his sickbed.

Then Tole’afoa went and arrived at Lufilufi in Atua where the Palace of Mulinu’u Lalogafu’afu’a and Sepolata’emo, the Royal Seat of Lufilufi the Tumua the Principal Place. He sat down beneath the breadfruit trees and did not enter the house. So the King spoke: Be welcomed in the house so that we can confer well with each other. So Tole’afoa said: Your pigeon flight and gentle winds descend upon me. I shall not enter your house except for the Tumua. So Fonoti and the Tumua said: Welcome here in the house, let us confer with the king.

Note: King Fonoti Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa his Wish or Mavaega with his brother.
So Tole’afoa came and sat down by the in-between posts at the rear. Again the King spoke: Come, that I may determine our affairs so that your children and mine will fare well. The following were the words of King Fonoti: The Four High Titles be for me and my children, while the Title Tonumaipe’a be for you and your children, so that you will lead the Aumaga. Therefore the Aumaga shall be known to be sanctified. And because you have the Title Tonumaipe’a, you shall sit on a mat, and only you alone shall sit outside on a mat, and the others of the Aumaga shall be forbidden to sit down on a mat. When the kava chewing is over, all shall stand up with their kava bits and put them in the kava bowl; but for your kava bit someone else shall rise and take it there. Then let the kava bowl be brought and placed before you. If no King is announced by the Tumua, you are to be Tuia’ana Aveau’malaga and the words of the Aualuma are to point to you. Your Aualuma is to be cared for by Leulumoega, and Fasito’o-tai and Fasito’o-uta are to protect them.

However, if you ever again reach for my things, you and your children shall be the prey of the creepers (in the grave) and water shall flow below you; if on the other hand I should reach for your things then I and my children shall be seized by the creepers and water shall flow under me.

(P. 207) The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “In this regard, they strongly criticized a number of the early draft proposals from the colonial powers, but praised the commitment from the New Zealand that its agreement with Western Samoa would be ‘in effect a self-contained Bill of Rights for the inhabitants.” – (Regents Professor Paul Gordon Lauren: World Peace and Freedom 1945: Nobel Peace Institute and the United Nations) – Link to Info in full

HON FONOTI HIS WISH OF APPOINTMENTS FOR THE CONSTITUTIONAL INDEPENDENCE GOVERNMENT OF SAMOA: 1954-1957

HON FONOTI: Hon Acting Chairmen and the dignity of the Convention.

SAMOA, I would say that even though this Convention has been somewhat long, it is now seven weeks since it started, but it is not a thing that we should be downhearted about, and from what I have heard of the expression of options I am convinced that the majority of us here are very keen indeed to secure Self Government – Samoa Independence!

I Agree that this Constitutional Convention is something like religious conference because we have very often mentioned the Name of God, whereas this Convention is the Constitutional Convention of the Government of Samoa. I feel that the reason why perhaps we are mentioning the name of God so very often is because we are anxious that a Government of Samoa be founded in God, and I Wish to say therefore to you Samoa well done indeed.

I am convinced that Samoa is very anxious to take over the reins of her own Government and regain her rights to take charge of her own affairs. I would appeal to you Samoa, do not worry. Why should we worry? We are present here, we are all Samoans and this is Samoa which is holding this Convention. I would drew your attention Samoa to the fact that we are a Christian Country and this week we will again commemorate the Birth of Christ, the King of Peace on Earth. Peace and Goodwill onto men. Therefore, I would say let us not worry. I am convinced that our people of Samoa are Christians, and where there is right according to the Will of God, there will be success. I would say therefore, to you to bear in mind that Samoa are Christian people and as Christians we should certainly exercise, faith, hope and Love.

By faith I mean we should believe there is a God; by hope I would say that we should meet the temptations of the devil with hope in God; and by Love I mean that we should have that love whereby we will reject all that is bad and all that is not right that we may do, as good Christian people to love God and love our people and do that which is right. Samoa, let us be bound together in that love which should bring us together and do what is right for the benefit of our country in future.

Now I will express my opinion on this question of Head of State. Before I actually state what I have in mind I should first like to remind this Convention that I am one of the members of the Working Committee, and our recommendation of course is before you now; but since listening to the expressions which have been made in this Convention since the time we started I have come to some conclusions and formed my own opinion which I now wish to express before you.

FIRST, I would say that the present Council of State be retained and that its name be changed to Fono of Ta’imua – Council of Leaders.
SECOND, that the four royal sons of Samoa be in that Council.
THIRD, that the Hon Tupua Tamasese and Hon Malietoa, as they are at present, the Head of State, but for the future that there be only one Head of State and that the Head of the State be selected from within that fono of Ta’imua, and that the four nominates the Head of the State. If they are unable to do that then the matter should be referred to the Legislature for final action.

Those are my Wishes to this question of Head of the State and I would say if we should do that and carry hope, faith and charity in our hearts, and trust in our Lord, and trust in our own people, I am sure we will succeed and be bound together in Unity and Friendship. And I would say not only for the present, but also for the future, so that the very words written in our flag which is flying above us now “God is The Foundation of Samoa” may be always in our hearts. I have many other points which I would have liked to speak about but time is short.

Sir, I move that the Steering Committee comprising 5 Samoans and 2 Europeans namely:
Hon Leutele Te’o, Hon Tualaulelei, Hon Gatoloai Peseta, Hon To’omata and Hon Va’ai Kolone, Hon H.W. Moors and Hon A.M. Gurau, be Confirmed.
Hon Fiame Mata’afa Faumuina Mulinuu (ii) as the first Prime Minister of the Government of Samoa – Hon Fonoti Ioane Brown called a special meeting with his district and family of Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi at Lotofaga Atua, to confirmed his retirement as a Politician at the end of 1957, and offer the opportunity to Fiame Mata’afa Faumuina Mulinu’u (ii).

On January 1, 1962, Western Samoa became the first independent state in the tropical South Pacific, and also the world’s first independent “micro-state.” Malietoa Tanumafili (ii) and Tupua Tamasese Mea’ole were joint Heads of State for life. Mata’afa Faumuina Fiame Mulinuu (ii) was Western Samoa’s first Prime Minister. (1a. Davidson 1967: 408-411) Note: The Government of Samoa founded in God: Fa’avae i le Atua Samoa.

The original historical All Samoa Fa’alupega of King Fonoti Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa was regained from the changed by the Colonist Imperial, with the new addition to it “Tama and Aiga” stands for the four Tamaaaiga and their families: – Tulouna Tumua ma Pule, Tulouna Itu’au ma Alataua, Tulouna Aiga I le Tai, ma le Va’a o Fonoti, Tulouna Tama ma latou Aiga, po’o Aiga ma latou Tama.

On October 9, 1974, Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown of Lalovaea and Lotofaga Atua of King Fonoti Tupu Tafa’ifa of Samoa line, died at Moto’otua Hospital Apia in Western Samoa. The funeral mass was held at the Catholic Church in Mulivai Apia by His Eminence Cardinal Bishop Pio. Fonoti was laid to rest and buried at his land called “Oliula” in Lotofaga Atua. (J.B.

Footnotes On History of Samoa Recorded By Historians: 1800/1900’s

•August 16, 2009 • Leave a Comment

FOOTNOTES RECORDED BY HISTORIANS DURING COLONIAL PERIOD IN SAMOA, AND TO INDEPENDENCE

In 1810 the most powerful chief was Tamafaiga of Manono who gave himself the title as ‘Tupu o Salafai’. According to this tradition the only person to hold the Tafa’ifa since Queen Salamasina was Fonoti who was known as Fonoti the King! (Malama Meleisea).

On August 18, 1830, John Williams and his party “observed from the east a bay [Safune] which appeared well sheltered from the east wind….A great number of canoes came off to whom Faauea the Samoas Chief spoke. The people recognised him immediately and addressed him as their Etu Chief.” (Probably aitu, believing that he was dead because of his long absence from Samoa). Fa’auea told the Samoans that the Olive Branch was a “pahilotu” (praying ship), and the Christian converts on Tongatapu, Ha’apai, Rarotonga and Tahiti were “all much better since they embraced Christianity.” (1a. Moyle 1984: 67-68)

On August 20, 1830, John Williams and his fellow missionaries approached Apolima, and secured the services of “a European called John Wright,” who “came to offer himself as our Interpreter in which capacity we were glad to accept him.” On this occasion, Williams recorded the recent assassination of the reputed cannibal chief Lei’ataua Tonumaipe’a Tamafaiga “about 15 days before our arrival,” speculating that “It is thought he would have used all his influence to oppose our object he himself being almost the object of adoration but he was removed.” (1a. Moyle 1984: 69)

On August 23, 1830, LMS missionary John Williams and his colleagues visited “the principal chief Malietoa [Vai'inupo, at Sapapali'i, Savai'i] with the present we had brought for him.” (Axes, hammers, chisels, cloth, beads and a large quantity of LMS publications). In return, Malietoa brought the missionaries “a present of mats and native cloth. The chief held one end of the cloth and mats in his hands leaving the other to drag after him in the form of a train which an elderly female bore slightly off the ground. The chief came in twice in the above mentioned manner and presented the mats and cloth to us rather in a stately and graceful manner.” After Malietoa was seated, Williams, using John Wright as an interpreter, explained the purpose of his visit, which was not to take any of his property, but rather, to teach him “and his people the knowledge of the true God.” (1a. Moyle 1984: 73)

On May 3, 1841, Malietoa Vai’inupo (”Tavita”), the first tama ‘aiga chief to accept Christianity, died in Western Samoa. (1e. Theroux 1985)

On February 25, 1868, Malietoa Laupepa was proclaimed King of Samoa. The French reported that the proclamation was inspired by Consul J.C. Williams. (1a. Morrell 1960: 213)

On April 9, 1872, the “chiefs and rulers of Samoa” signed a petition addressed to United States President Ulysses S. Grant “praying for the annexation of Samoa to the United States.” (1a. Morrell 1960: 214)

On January 14, 1876, the “Three Consuls” (of England, Germany and the United States) issued a proclamation withdrawing foreign subjects from the jurisdiction of the Samoan government. (1a. Morrell 1960: 218)

On February 7, 1876, Malietoa Laupepa, appointed as “King of Samoa” by the Three Consuls and held aboard HMS Barracouta, was persuaded to sign a letter requesting the arrest of Samoa’s “Premier” Albert Barnes Steinberger as “a liar and an impostor.” (1a. Morrell 1960: 218)

On September 2, 1879, a municipal convention was held in Apia between Malietoa Laupepa and the “Three Consuls” (of Britain, Germany and the United States). Under the terms of this agreement, “the Samoan Government gave up all jurisdiction over the town, harbour and neighbourhood of Apia. A Municipal Board was created, consisting of the Three Consuls and one nominee of each, with rating powers and a magistrate to enforce its regulations and redress complaints. One of its first regulations forbade the sale of liquor to a Pacific islander.” (1a. Morrell 1960: 223)

On October 17, 1879, The Apia town and district were formed into a municipality on the advise of Sir Arthur Gordon when he called here some months earlier. (Tom Overhoff: 2009)

On December 23, 1879, German warships saluted Malietoa Talavou and the new Samoan flag, which was red with a white cross and a white star in the upper left quadrant. (1e. Theroux 1985)

On March 12, 1880, Malietoa Talavou was declared “King of Samoa” and his nephew, Malietoa Laupepa was declared “Vice King,” to succeed his uncle on his death, by the Three Consuls (Britain, Germany and the United States). (1a. Bryan 1927: 27)

On March 24, 1880, in Apia, an agreement was entered into by “King” Malietoa Talavou, the Government of Samoa and the “Three Consuls” (Britain, Germany and the United States) whereby the Consuls agreed to support the King, and to provide an Executive Council for him. The members of the council were Thomas Trood, English, Minister of Finance; Alfred Volkmann, German, Minister of Public Works and Jonas M. Coe, American, Minister of Justice. (Jonas Coe was the father of Emma Eliza Coe, the legendary “Queen Emma”). (1d. Bryan 1927: 27)

On March 10, 1881, Malietoa Laupepa was crowned “King of Samoa” by the “Three Consuls” (Britain, Germany and the United States). (1d. Bryan 1927: 27)

On March 19, 1881, Malietoa Laupepa, nephew of the recently deceased Talavou, was declared “King of Samoa” by the “Three Consuls” (Britain, Germany and the United States). Tupua Tamasese Lealofi I and Mata’afa Iosefo opposed the declaration. (1d. Bryan 1927: 27)

On April 21, 1881, Tupua Tamasese Lealofi I, Mata’afa Iosefo and other disaffected chiefs met at Leulumoega, ‘Upolu. Tamasese was declared “King” of Atua and A’ana districts, to hold office for two years, and then to be succeeded by Mata’afa. (1d. Bryan 1927: 27)

On July 12, 1881, the “Lackawanna Agreement,” mediated by Captain J.H. Gillis of the U.S. Navy, commanding USS Lackawanna, was signed in Western Samoa, dividing kingly honors between “King” Malietoa Laupepa and “Vice King” Tui A’ana Tupua Tamasese Titimaea. (1a. Gray 1960: 68-69)

On January 23, 1885, Doctor C. Stuebel, the German Consul in Samoa, raised the German flag at Mulinu’u, ‘Upolu, as a “public manifestation” of the taking possession “as security, of all the land which now constitutes all the municipality of Apia.” (This was supposed to be a reprisal for the alleged wrongs committed against Germany by the Samoan Government). (1d. Bryan 1927: 29)

On December 31, 1885, in Apia, the German Consul in Apia, Dr. C. Stuebel, hauled Malietoa Laupepa’s flag down, explaining that Malietoa had no jurisdiction over the municipal zone. (1a. Gilson 1970: 379, 381)

On August 27, 1887, German warships distributed declarations of Tui A’ana Tupua Tamasese Titimaea’s war on Malietoa Laupepa (which lasted until September 1, 1887. (1a. Gray 1960: 78)

On September 15, 1887, Captain Eugen Brandeis, a German officer, forced Malietoa Laupepa and other chiefs to sign a document declaring Tui A’ana Tupua Tamasese Titimaea as “King of Samoa.” (1a. Gray 1960: 78-79)

On September 17, 1887, Malietoa Laupepa surrendered to German Captain Eugen Brandeis, was taken aboard SMS Bismarck, and was sent into exile aboard SMS Adler, first to the Cameroons, then to Germany, and finally to Jaluit in the Marshall Islands. “He was accompanied by his brother Moti, Maisake and Alualu (a half-caste German interpreter).” (1d. Bryan 1927: 32)

On September 5, 1888, the German warship SMS Adler (”Eagle”) shelled Manono and Apolima, which were strongholds of Malietoa’s forces. (1a. Gray 1960: 83)

On March 23, 1889, Malietoa Tanumafili I was installed as “King of Samoa” by the “Three Consuls.” (1a. Gray 1960: 99)

On June 14, 1889, the Berlin General Act proclaimed the “independence and neutrality of the Samoan Islands” and provided for the recognition of Malietoa Laupepa as “King.” Another aim of this Act was to avoid all occasions of dissensions between their respective and the people of Samoa while at the same time promoting as far as possible the peaceful and orderly civilization of the people. (1a. Kennedy 1974: 96-98; 1d. Coleman 1959: 7)

On August 11, 1889, Malietoa Laupepa returned from his exile in the Marshall Islands, aboard a German gunboat, and was set adrift. He was met by Mata’afa Iosefo, in favor of whom he subsequently abdicated his “kingship.” (1d. Bryan 1927: 34)

On July 13, 1893, Mata’afa Iosefo was captured on Savai’i, having fled there from Manono during yet another of Samoa’s European-inspired 19th century civil wars. (1a. Gray 1960: 97)

On July 26, 1893, he was deported to Jaluit in the Marshall Islands, along with his daughter and 11 others. (1a. Gray 1960: 97)

On December 5, 1894, the Samoan Land Claims Commission held its last meeting, awarding 75,000 acres to German claimants, 36,000 to English petitioners, and 21,000 to American hopefuls. (1a. Gilson 1970: 411; 1a. Gray 1960: 97-98)

On November 15, 1898, after a great fono in Mulinu’u, Mata’afa Iosefo was declared “King.” This news was relayed to the Three Consuls and the Chief Justice. The Germans supported his claim, but Malietoa Tanumafili I and Tui A’ana Tupua Tamasese Lealofi I denied the legality of the election. Chief Justice William Lea Chambers agreed with them, and civil war once again erupted. (1a. Gilson 1970: 426-427).

On December 31, 1898, in accordance with the provisions of the Berlin General Act, the Chief Justice of Samoa ruled that Malietoa Tanumafili I would be “King,” as the three claimants (Malietoa, Tui A’ana Tupua Tamasese Lealofi I and Mata’afa Iosefo) could not agree among themselves as to who should be “King.” Once again, civil war broke out. (1d. Bryan 1927: 40)

On January 4, 1899, The Three Consuls (of England, Germany and the United States) recognized Mataafa Iosefos government in Apia. (1e. Theroux 1985)

On March 31, 1899, Mata’afa Iosefo’s forces defeated Malietoa Tanumafilis army in yet another phase of Samoa’s ongoing, European-inspired civil war. (1a. Gray 1960: 101)

On February 16, 1900, the Berlin Agreement was ratified by the United States Senate. Under the terms of the treaty, the eastern Samoan islands (Tutuila, Aunu’u and Manu’a) became a U.S. Territory. Germany gained control of ‘Upolu, Savai’i and the other western isles, and in return gave up her interests in Tonga and the Solomon Islands. Britain relinquished her claims in Samoa, colonized the Solomon Islands and retained a sphere of influence in Tonga. (1d. Bryan 1927: 43)

On March 1, 1900, Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Solf, newly appointed as Imperial Governor of German Samoa (called Deutsch Samoa or simply Samoa by the Germans), raised the flag at Mulinuu, Apia in the presence of a great audience. The Kaisers proclamation, read at the ceremony, stated: We hereby, in the name of the Empire, take these islands under our Imperial protection. The Governor declared the islands to be German territory, and hoisted the Imperial flag of the Consulate to the strains of Heil Kaiser, Dir, ['Hail to you, Emperor'] and a national salute from H.I.G.M.S. [His Imperial German Majesty's Ship] Cormoran and the U.S.S. Abarenda, Commander B.F. Tilley, United States Navy, Commanding. Governor Solf visited Abarenda the next day and was saluted with 13 guns. (1d. Bryan 1927: 43; 1a. Field 1984: 26)

On March 9, 1900, Mata’afa Iosefo thanked the German Emperor (Kaiser Wilhelm II) for taking possession of the western Samoan islands, and expressed his wish that the German colonial laws would be made “in conformity to the rules and customs of the Samoans.” (1a. Hempenstall 1978: 33)

On February 17, 1901, Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown of Lalovaea and Lotofaga Atua the Sa-Fonoti the King line, was born at Lotofaga Atua in Western Samoa. (J.B. Fonoti family: Sa-Fonoti) – Info in full

On September 16, 1901, Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Solf, Governor of German Samoa, issued a proclamation which forbade the Samoan custom of fa’atafea (banishment of wrong doers). The proclamation closed with this statement: “This is my word; everyone must obey it.” (1b. Theroux 1983b: 55)

On February 18, 1903, German Samoa’s Governor, Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Solf, proclaimed the establishment of a Land and Titles Commission. (1a. Davidson 1967: 81)

In 1905, The case for Malietoa asserted that he held the four papa titles and was tafa’ifa, Lauaki Namalauulu Mamoe of Safotulafai in Savaii, asserted that Malietoa had no such recognition. He claimed that Malietoa held none of the titles, not even that of Malietoa, since none had been bestowed by Samoan custom. In this contention Lauaki was supported by the Orators of Malie and Manono. (Malama meleisea).

In 1909, Lauaki Namalau’ulu Mamoe of Safotulafai and other chiefs aboard the German warship taking them to exile in Saipan. (Malama Meleisea).

On January 21, 1909, The orator Lauaki Namulaulu of Safotulafai, leader of the Pule Party, arrived at Vaiusu, accompanied by a large party of armed men in 25 fautasis. He had been summoned by the German Governor Solf for interrogation concerning his petition for self-government by the Samoans, and the newly, by the Germans created title of Ali’i Sili. The Governor, accompanied by Mata’afa, went to Vaiusu and persuaded Lauaki to return to Savaii with all his people, which Lauaki did. He also managed to pacify the Tumua fiction who took umbrage at Lauaki’s discreet and challenging action in landing a large party of armed men at Vaiusu. Solf could not let Lauaki get away with this defying act, and telegraphed for the assistance of German warships at the time in the South Pacific. These ships arrived 2 months later, and Lauaki and 9 of his adherents and their families were deported to Saipan. (Tom Overhoff: 2009)

On February 6, 1912, Paramount Chief and Mau leader Mata’afa Iosefo, a leading figure in Samoan civil wars of the late nineteenth century, and oft-crowned (by the Three Consuls) “King of Samoa,” died and was buried at Mulinuu, Apia. (1a. Davidson 1967: 88)

On June 21, 1913, Following the decree from the German Emperor that the Governor may select one member of the Tupua family and one member of the Malietoa family to be his trusted friends and advisers, Tupua Tamasese and Malietoa Tanumafili (i) were sworn in as Fautua. Their remuneration was 2000 Deutschmark per year. (Tom Overhoff: 2009)

In 1913, one of the changes was the All Samoa Fa’alupega from King Fonoti: – Tulouna a Tumua ma Pule, Tulouna a Itu’au ma Alataua, Tulouna a Aiga-i-le-Tai, Ma le Va’a-o-Fonoti. Translation: Respect to Tumua and Pule, Respect to Itu’au and Alataua, Respect to Aiga I le Tai, And the Crew/Ship of Fonoti. (Since 1600AD)

To the new Fa’alupega of German Samoa required for Malietoa Tanunafili and Tupua Tamasese to be sworn on oath and change this Samoas historical Fa’alupega to the new fa’alupega as follows: - Tulouna a lana Maiesitete le Kaisa o le Tupu mamalu o lo tatou Malo Kasialika Aoao, Tulouna a lana afioga le Kovana Kasialika o le sui o le Kaisa i Samoa nei, Susu mai Malietoa, Afio mai Tupua, Ua fa’amanatuaina ai aiga e lua i o oulua tofiga Kasialika o le Fautua, Tulouna a le vasega a Faipule Kasialika o e lagolago malosi i le Malo, Afifio mai le nofo a vasega o tofiga Kasialika o e ua fita i le tautua i le Malo. Translation: Respect to his Majesty the Kaiser, the most dignified King of our imperial Government. Respect to his honour the Imperial Governor, the Kaiser’s representative in Samoa, Welcome to Malietoa and Tupua, who represent the two families in your positions as advisers to the Imperial government, Respect to the Faipule Kaisalika who are strong supporters of the government, Welcome to the various officials who have served the imperial government faithfully. (Malama Meleisea)

On May 1, 1920, New Zealand’s civil administration of Western Samoa began, under the authority of two bills passed by the New Zealand Parliament. The first bill provided for the establishment of a Department of External Affairs. The second empowered the government to establish a civil administration in Western Samoa. Under this authority, a Samoa Constitution Order was created. (1a. Field 1984: 53)

On December 17, 1920, the Council of the League of Nations confirmed and defined “A Mandate conferred upon and accepted by His Britannic Majesty for and on behalf of the Dominion of New Zealand to administer German Samoa.” Thus, King George V, as King of the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth, became King of Western Samoa. (1a. Davidson 1967: 101; 1a. Field 1984: 54; 1a. Rowe 1930: 96)

On July 23, 1927, in the New Zealand Parliament, the second reading of the Samoa Amendment Bill was concluded.

On March 3, 1930, the leaders of the Mau met with Western Samoa’s Administrator, Colonel Stephen Shepard Allen, New Zealand’s Defense Minister, Mr. John Cobbe, and other officials in the guest house of Tupua Tamasese Mea’ole in Vaimoso. Also in attendance were Malietoa Tanumafili I, Mata’afa Faumuina Fiame Mulinu’u I and Tuimaleali’ifano Siu (whose sons would play prominent roles in Western Samoa’s future). The meeting was lengthy; nothing was accomplished, and tensions increased. (1a. Field 1984: 183-185)

On March 4, 1930, a second meeting of Mau leaders with New Zealand’s Defense Minister John Cobbe and Western Samoa’s Administrator, Colonel Stephen Allen, ended in failure. (1a. Field 1984: 184-186)

The Mau leaders presented a letter which contained a list of questions regarding the status of their petition to the League of Nations, and their dissatisfaction with Judge Luxford’s verdict regarding the murder of Paramount Chief Tupua Tamasese Lealofi III on “Black Saturday” (December 29, 1929). (1a. Field 1984: 188-189)

On April 21, 1931, Western Samoa’s Chief Judge, John Luxford, found O.F. Nelson & Co., Ltd. guilty of 28 charges of “aiding and abetting” the Mau. He levied a fine of £200 for each charge, for a total of £5,600, and added this comment: “I know of nothing more deserving of censure and condemnation than actions of a European [i.e. afakasi] or European corporation deliberately encouraging members of a somewhat unsophisticated native race to break the law.” (The fine was later reduced by the New Zealand Supreme Court). (1a. Field 1984: 199-200)

On March 3, 1933, Western Samoas Chief Judge, John Luxford, found Mau leader O.F. Nelson guilty of sedition, and sentenced him to eight months in jail and ten years in exile. He was immediately taken to Vaimea Jail. (1a. Field 1984: 210)

In 1935, Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown of Lotofaga Atua was the leader for the MAU in Atua, till his last year for the MAU in Vaimoso in 1942. (Lands & Titles Court Doc. March 1952) – Info in full

On January 9, 1939, At Mandates Commission of the League of Nations, when considering the annual report of the NZ Government on Samoa, some very pertinent questions were asked such as: “Is it true that the anti-MAU movement called the Malo was as strong in numbers and influence as the organization dominated by Mr. Nelson and his son-in-law Tamasese?” and “Would it be fair to say that the MAU could be identified with the Nelson family, and the anti-MAU with the family of Malietoa?” (Tom Overhoff: 2009)

In 1939 to 1947, Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown of Lotofaga Atua was the leader of the Fono a Faipule of the Government of Samoa. (Fono o Faipule Proceedings 1939/1947)

In 1942-4, the export values rose from when had fallen to 228,000 pounds to an average of 352,000 pounds. In 1945 they reached the record figure of 630,000 pounds. Despite an increase in the cost of imports (offset, from the national point of view, by difficulties of supply and shipping), this was a period of substantial prosperity, from which the government, as well as the private individual, benefited. Internal revenue rose from an average of 110,000 pounds in the financial years 1939-40 to 1941-2 to 257,000 pounds in the succeeding three-year period. And as one result, the public debt, which had for so long worried both Samoan and European leaders, was wholly repaid. (Davidson Bk: Samoa mo Samoa)

In 1942, onwards a growing and audible demand for self-government, a demand by no means silenced by New Zealand paternalism. In the view of an experienced observer; it was not far removed from the formation of another Mau. By this time, however, it was known that the Prime Minister himself was about to visit the mandated territory. He was known to have a keen personal interest in its administration, of which since 1940 he had been the ministerial head; but the tremendous pressure of war issues during the ensuing years had kept his main attention elsewhere. (NZTEC: NZ Electronic Text Centre)

In 1944, The Petition for Self-Government by the Fono of Faipule leader Hon Fonoti presented directly to New Zealand Governor-General Sir Cyral Newall in June, and much more directly to the Prime Minister the Rt. Hon Mr. Peter Fraser on the 20-26th of December the same year. (Fono o Faipule Proceedings 1944)

On June 1944, NZ Governor-General Sir Cyral Newall paid his third visit to the territory, and while welcoming him, the leader of Fono o Faipule Hon Fonoti on behalf of the fono, expressed solid criticism of New Zealand policy. “The Samoans, said Hon Fonoti, had been denied even that element of self-government which had been established in Tonga and Fiji and in Eastern Samoa. The terms of the mandate have imposed on New Zealand the solemn duty of educating the Samoans to self-government and the terms of the Atlantic Charter express the same aim for the small nations of the world, concluding that he had lost confidence in the NZ trusteeship. Samoans are quite able to run their own affairs, in spite of NZ’s failure to assist.”- Info in full (Fono o Faipule Proceedings 1944: NZTEC)

On December 20 to 26, 1944, NZ Prime Minister the Rt. Hon Mr. Peter Fraser visited Samoa for a special fono to discuss matters on the spot. This visit of the Prime Minister and discussions at the special fono “proved a crucial event in NZ’s relations with the Samoans and in the evolution of NZ’s conception of trusteeship”. Demands were made by leader Fono o Faipule Hon Fonoti with a list of remits presented to the Prime Minister, most of which were detailed and aimed at progressive displacement of Europeans by Samoans in administration, included setting up of a scholarship scheme etc. but which was headed by a firm request for Self-Government in Samoa after the war, all of which eventually lead to endorsement by United Nations on 13 Dec, 1946. (Fono o Faipule Proceedings 1944)

On November 18, 1946, Western Samoa’s “Fono of All Samoa” presented a letter to Foss Shanahan, New Zealand’s Assistant Secretary for External Affairs, in which the members thanked New Zealand for its assistance, but expressed their complete opposition to the draft United Nations Trusteeship Agreement. The Fono asked for self-government, with New Zealand acting “as Protector and adviser to Samoa in the same capacity as England is to Tonga.” (1a. Davidson 1967: 166)

On December 13, 1946, the United Nations General Assembly approved the Trusteeship Agreement for Western Samoa. Its details belong to the history of self-government in Samoa. (1a. Davidson 1967: 167)

On August, 1947, the term ‘Native’ had been replaced by ‘Samoan’ in normal official usage after the New Zealand policy statement of Aug 1947. The Department of Native Affairs, for example, had been renamed Department of Samoan Affairs. But the term ‘Native’ remained in the text of many legal enactments, in the title of various offices, etc., till the Samoa Amendment Act, 1951, provided for its general replacement by ‘Samoan’. (Davidson Bk: Samoa mo Samoa)

During 1947-54, The growth in export earnings was paralleled by an increase in the participation of Samoan villagers in economic life. Samoan producers had contributed the figure was 1,999 tons of cocoa, or sixty-six per cent of the total exported. A rapidly growing banana trade was very largely reserved to Samoan growers. A great deal more money, this encouraged many Samoans in villages to begin trading on their own account. A return of June 1954 showed nearly seventy Samoans as the holders of business licences, nearly all as general storekeepers. One of these – Hon Fonoti Ioane Brown – who was an Apia merchant, had been the principal founder of the first predominantly Samoan-owned company, Samoa Traders Ltd. – was shown as operating fourteen stores, also became the most successful planters and cattlemen, his career had shown he was a man of drive and considerable shrewdness. His title belonged not to Lufilufi (the political centre of Atua, which he was to represent) but to Lotofaga Atua. (Davidson Bk: Samoa mo Samoa)

On March 10, 1948, the Samoa Amendment Act of 1947 became law. It changed the designation of Western Samoa’s principal executive officer from “Administrator” to “High Commissioner.” The “Administration of Western Samoa” became the “Government of Western Samoa.” (1a. Davidson 1967: 185)

On March 27, 1950, a Commission of Inquiry on Government Reform was appointed in Western Samoa. The members were: Tofa Tomasi, Tuala Tulo, Mata’ia Si’u, Tofilau Siaosi, Fa’amatuainu Tufilau and Namulau’ulu Siaosi. (1a. Davidson 1967: 265)

On April 1, 1950, Western Samoa’s Public Service Commission was created. (1a. Davidson 1960: 212)

On 1951-1953, Hon Fonoti had taken the novel step of formation of a Political Party. Out of this action “The Samoan Democratic Party” emerged. The founder and leader of The Samoa Democratic Party. During its first year the party claimed a membership of about three hundred and the support of a substantial proportion of the untitled people. But the election of Hon Fonoti to the Fono of Faipule late in 1951 and his return to the Legislative Assembly in 1954 gave it a place in the formal political life of the Country; and others who were associated with it have since served in Public Office. Although Fonoti was an influencial person, his party was never able to function effectively as a pressure group, it’s more important policy proposals were brought clearly before the public; even thou the Party died, its ideals have lived on in the form of demand for Universal Surfrage with Matai Candidacy, the replacement of The Fono a Faipule and The Legislative Assembly by One Body, and Personal Tax Services. (Davidson; Bk Samoa mo Samoa)

On April 1, 1954, the “District and Village Government Board Ordinance” became law in Western Samoa. (1a. Davidson 1967: 312)

And for a Government of Samoa be founded in God. For the office of Head of State – the present Council of State be retained and its name be changed to Fono of Ta’imua – Council of Leaders. And that the four Tamaaiaga be in that Council, and that Hon Tupua Tamasese and Hon Malietoa Tanumafili (ii) as they are at present the Head of State, but for the future that there be only one Head of State and that the Head of State be selected from within that Council (fono of Ta’imua), and that the four nominates the Head of State. If they are unable to do that then the matter should be referred to the Legislature for final action. (Fono of Samoa Proceedings: 1954/57)

In 1954-1960, The Working Committee had been able to reach solutions on the most difficult problems of Samoan politics. In reaching decisions that were both clear and comprehensive on subjects such as the Head of State and domestic status, in its various aspects, the Working Committee Constitutional Convention had provided a firm foundation for the government of the future Samoan state. The drafting of the Constitution more important was the question of choosing a term to describe the new state. ‘Kingdom’ or ‘elective monarchy’, which would have accorded with Samoan sentiment, were inappropriate; and ‘republic’, which would have been accurate, were wholly unacceptable. Other terms that were thought of, such as ‘principality’, were rejected for one reason or another. The final decision, therefore, was in favour of the term ‘Independent State of Western Samoa’. (Davidson Bk: Samoa mo Samoa)

On October 28, 1960, Western Samoa’s Constitutional Convention completed its work. (1a. Davidson 1967: 400-401)

Afamasaga Tole’afoa remarked in Parliament that getting into Parliament costs a fortune, and that, once the candidates are there, it is “Natural” to try and recover the money they had to spend to get there. He considered it to be a “Natural state of affairs” that M.P.’s would try to get their hands on on public funds if the regular remuneration packages are not sufficient. To reduce the risk of the honorable abusing public funds to serve their own purpose, he supported the Civil List Act amendment bill aimed at raising the remuneration of M.P.’s.

Ae na te’ena vave e Mata’utia lo la manatu. Ua uma ona iloa e Mata’utia e le mafia e A’ana ona tu’u mai o lena Papa se’iloga ua fao fa’amalosi, ma o le uiga la o se taua fo’i.

Ua o’o i le tasi aso, ua fa’alogoina e tulafale o Papa e fa! Ua folafola ia So’oaemalelagi Levalasi i lana malaga na alu i Falealupo. Na manatu loa e sili ona foa’i tonu i le tama’ita’i.

Peace and a Charter with Human Rights:

Peace, in their mind, thus required that “all human beings, irrespective of race, creed, or sex, have the right to persue both their material well-being and their spiritual development in conditions of freedom and dignity, of economic security, and equal opportunity.

Many also began to define peace as more clearly entailing the protection of civil and political rights for all people. After their own recent history, they will no longer willing to accept the old proposition that how a government treated its own people remained an exclusive and simple matter of “domestic jurisdiction.” The crushing of all opposition, the denial of freedom of speech and assembly, the elimination of due process, and the expansion of the power of the state over the lives of individuals and groups by Hitler, Mussolini, and the militarists in Japan – all behind the protective shield of national sovereignty – convinced them that the abuse of rights at home could all too quickly spill over national borders and lead to war and even genocide. “As basic human rights are protected in each country, the prevention of war is made easier,” declared the Commission to Study the Organisation of Peace. The reason for this, they believed, could be stated directly and in light of recent experience:

Now, as a result of the Second World War, it has become clear that a regime of violence and oppression within any nation of the civilized world is a matter of concern for all the rest. It is a disease in the body politic which is contagious because the government that rest upon violence will, by its very nature, be even more ready to do violence to foreigners than to its own fellow citizens, especially if it can thus escape the consequences of its acts at home. The foreign policy of despots is inherently one which carries with it a constant risk to the peace and security of others. In short, if aggression is the key-note of domestic policy, it will also be the clue to foreign relations.

The ordeal of this particular war similarly contributed to the concept that any lasting peace would require an implementation of the right of self-determination. Part of this, of course, resulted from the many promises made by the Allies to distance themselves from their adversaries and to solicit support for the larger crusade. They promoted the idea at every opportunity that the right of all people to choose the form of government under which they would live remained one of the most essential ingredients of any peace settlement. Thus, the Atlantic Charter, the Declaration of the United Nations, the many speeches by Allied leaders, and even the Declaration on Liberated Europe emerging as late as February 1945 from the Yalta Conference between the United States, Britain, and the Soviet Union all fostered this belief. But there was something more as well. The war produced millions of new European victims of aggression at the hands of the Axis powers. As a result, their own first-hand experience made them much more sympathetic than ever to the sufferings of others forced to live under conquest and subjugation, including those indigenous people within their colonial empires, who vowed that there could never be lasting peace as long as they were denied their freedom. Thus, many victims in the west began to join with many others like Gandhi in India, Ho Chi Minh of Indochina, Nkrumah and Kenyatta of Africa, Carlos Romulo of the Philippines, and Fonoti of Western Samoa in regarding the right of self-determination as absolutely necessary for international peace.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights: on Page 207

Simultaneous with these intense debates on the new human rights agenda were those that raged over the right of self-determination. World War II had released powerful psychological and political forces in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Middle East, and the Pacific demanding rights for indigenous peoples and an end to colonial empires. These clashed directly and often violently with the resistance of the imperial powers to surrender control over their possessions.

Considerable pressure had been bought to bear by the majority of states to write provisions into the Charter concerning the Declaration Regarding Non-Self-Governing Territories, recognizing the principle that the interests of the inhabitants of these lands were paramount and pledging to work toward self-government and to authorize the creation of an International Trusteeship system within the United Nations. But this represented only a tenuous compromise. The majority within the General Assembly, who themselves had once been victims of imperialism, still were not satisfied, and decided to push further. Instead of having only imperial powers serve on the Trusteeship Council, for example, they elected such well-known vocal opponents of colonialism as China, Iraq, Mexico, and the Soviet Union. They battled over the text of each and every trusteeship agreement, trying to drive the specific conditions toward a greater emphasis on the rights of the peoples of these territories. In this regard, they strongly criticized a number of the early draft proposals from the colonial powers, but praised the commitment from the New Zealand that its agreement with Western Samoa would be “in effect a self-contained Bill of Rights for the inhabitants.

They adamantly rejected the plan by South Africa to annex South-West Africa and passed two important resolutions. One of these sought to take reports about the conditions within the trust territories and place them in the hands of the General Assembly as a whole where they could be discussed by determined and vocal advocates of decolonization. A second resolution called on those members who administered trust territories to convene special conferences of representatives of the peoples living in these lands in order that they might articulate their wishes and aspirations for self-government. Such action, they declared, would help to give practical effect to both the letter and the spirit of the human rights provisions within the Charter itself.

Book Intro: The Evolution of International Human Rights; visions seen; by Paul Gordon Lauren. Edition 2.

This widely acclaimed and highly regarded book, embraced by students, scholars, policymakers, and activists, now appears in a new edition. Using the theme of visions seen by those who dreamed of what might be, Lauren explores the dramatic transformation of a world patterned by centuries of traditional structures of authority, gender abuse, racial prejudice, class divisions and slavery, colonial empires, and claims of national sovereignty into a global community that now boldly proclaims that the way governments treat their own people is a matter of international concern–and sets the goal of human rights “for all peoples and all nations.”

Lauren makes clear the truly universal nature of this movement by drawing into his discussion people and cultures in every part of the globe. In this regard, the book offers particularly remarkable revelations and insights when analyzing the impact of wars and revolutions, non-Western nations, struggles against sexism and racism, liberation movements and decolonization, nongovernmental organizations, and the courage and determination of countless numbers of common men and women who have contributed to the evolution of international human rights.

This new edition incorporates the most recent developments of the International Criminal Court, the arrest of Augusto Pinochet and the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, technology and the Internet, the impact of NGOs like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, globalization, terrorism, and the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Story And Title (Ao) Tonumaipe’a: Warrior Goddess Nafanua Genealogy

•March 17, 2009 • 4 Comments

THE TITLE: AO TONUMAIPE’A

Leutogitupaitea the daughter of Pouliofataoletagaloa lived with Tui-Toga Manaia, a brother of Tui-Toga Faisautele.

Besides her a Togan woman lived with the same man, and she gave birth to a child; and filled with envy, Leutogi spoke to the Togan woman: Come let us go and bathe together. When they had arrived at the bathing place the tongan woman said to Leutogi: hold my boy, I want to bathe first! When Leutogi had the boy in her arms she took the rib of a coconut leaf and thrust it into the boys head. The little one began to scream, and when he wouldn’t stop she took him back to the house, where soon died. The Togan woman looked for the cause of his death and found the hole in his head and accused Leutogi of murder. When Tui-toga saw that she was guilty he sent out his people to gather wood and rocks for the construction of a large oven. They piled up the wood under a fetau tree and placed Leutogi in the branches of the tree; then they lid the wood pile. However when the flames began to rise, large swarms of flying foxes came and let their water out on the fire so that it died.

When Tui-Toga saw that his scheme had failed, he marooned Leutogi on a desolate deserted island. There was nothing there but sand and rocks, nothing green; and a demon, a aitu, roamed about. But he didn’t harm the woman, for he though that she would soon die of thirst and famine. But when her need was great, the flying foxes came and brought her fruits of the Ifi tree, breadfruit and wood, so she could cook. As she ate, the aitu looked at her in amazedment, for he did not know how she had come to have food. One day Tui-Uea passed by the island. He took Leutogi with him; henceforth she lived with him and bore him a son, Fa’asega.

When he had grown up, his mother sent him to Samoa to her family in Savaii, giving him three names for him to convey:
Tonumaipe’a; the right thing, the rescue was brought about by the pe’a, the flying foxes.
Tilomai; he looks on, the aitu, as she ate (sa’oaualuma name of Tonumaipe’a).
Tauiliili; covered with small rocks, the food in the oven, instead of with leaves, of which there was none.
