American Samoa Background Information


American Samoa at a Glance

Six Polynesian islands, below the Equator, comprise the southern-most territory of the United States.

Welcome to American Samoa.

American Samoa History

It is believed that, the first people on the Samoan Islands came by sea from southwest Asia some 3,000 years ago.

American Samoa Landscape

Unlike many island resort locations in the South Pacific, American Samoa has striven to manage its resources and maintain its scenic beauty in the most pristine condition possible.

As zoning is very strictly enforced tall, high-rise hotels and condominium buildings are not allowed to be built on the waterfront.

American Samoa Language and Culture

The Samoan culture is Polynesia's oldest.

American Samoans have a rich language that remains the main language of the people. English is the second language - spoken by all the islanders.

American Samoa Traditions and Customs

Fa'asamoa has kept Samoans strongly nationalistic and suspicious to changes that might threaten the traditional structure of their way of life.

Samoan weddings are generally a huge social event. Following the wedding service, a reception is usually held outdoors, because there's a lack of large enough facilities in most areas.

Out and About in American Samoa

American Samoa's islands are located in the heart of Polynesia, with Hawaii, Rapanui (Easter Island) and New Zealand making up the three points of the Polynesian triangle.

Islands of American Samoa

Tutuila is the largest and most populated island in American Samoa, with a rugged coast and few secluded beaches.

The mountain backdrop is steep and covered in tropical rain forest.


The Manu'a Group of islands lie about 100km east of Tutuila.

Ta'u, half National Park and spiritual centre of Polynesia, is the largest of the three islands (and furthest from Tutuila Island) but many travellers prefer the smaller islands of Ofu (wonderful sandy beach) and Olosega; which are conveniently connected by bridge.
