Historically, A’ana was one of the predominant powers in Samoa. A’ana and Atua were never occupied by Tongans, only areas of Tuamasaga. Tuamasaga eventually becoming heavily intermarried with Tongans after Tui-Toga Talaaifeii, King of Tonga was expelled by the heroic pair of Warriors from Atua called Tapatoa and Tapuloa.
Ulumasui a desendant of the ‘Tuiatua Tualemoso’ clan finally took the name Malietoa which was called out by the King Tui-Toga to Tapatoa and Tapuloa.
“Ioe Taputoa, Ioe Tapuloa,
Ua Malie toa! Ua Malie tau!
Ou te le toe sau i le auliuli tau.
Ae o le a ou sau i le auliuli folau.”
At a national level, the district is home to one of the four Tama-a-Aiga titles in the Tuimalealiifano title based at Falelatai. In recent times, it has become common for both titles to be held by the same person.
