Fiafia Samoan group

On April 18th is our school's 60th anniversary which we are celebrating with a fiafia night. It will be so awesome because we get to do our own dance, which I am nervous about, and watch others dance.

For each cultural group there is at least one item, some cultures have two e.g Samoan Junior and Samoan Senior Group. The group I am in is senior Samoan and I feel really nervous because there will be thousands of people. Our tutors are Timmy and Mrs Tele’a, they worked real hard. 

Our costume is a dress for the girls and a ie for the boys. They were made by our tutor Timmy and her mum, they must have taken a long time to make. It look really good but as soon as I wear it will be great.

We are doing a siva with a Samoan music called “Tausagi mai manu e” added with another song named “Sina oe." These 2 songs are old but we still use it. Samoan love it and I always listen to it because I'm a Samoan.

The night starts at 5 O’clock and at 5:30 our school sells dinner and our fiafia dances start at 7 O’clock. The Samoan dinner that they are selling is luau, taro, chicken but otherwise bring your own dinner to eat while watching. If you want dinner then come early at 5 O’clock.

There will be a lot of dances and you will probably get tired so have a long rest during the day. It will be a lovely night with food, music and dances to enjoy so please come along.
