Film synopsis: Two American Samoans, High Chief Togotogo Sotoa and Rex Lokeni, an untitled man, share parts of their culture that bring families and communities closer together. In American Samoa, chiefs give family members tasks to benefit their family. When family members earn respect from their families, their chief can grant them a title such as paramount chief, high chief, and high talking chief. An untitled man works to earn a servings chief title to a high chief in hopes of getting a high talking chief title. Executive Producers - Jean-Michel Cousteau, Gene Brighouse Producer - Jim Knowlton Filmed and edited by Jim Knowlton Music - Doug Shirley - "Silver Threads" and "Nahenahe" Special thanks to: National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa National Marine Sanctuary Foundation Office of National Marine Sanctuaries This film is the first film of the American Samoa Culture and Ocean Conservation Film Series. The stories in these short films are told by Americans Samoans who share their passion for their unique culture and for protecting their ocean resources for future generations. About National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa The National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa is located in the cradle of Polynesia’s oldest culture and is thought to support the greatest diversity of marine life in the National Marine Sanctuary System, including a wide variety of coral and other invertebrates, fishes, turtles, marine mammals and marine plants. The sanctuary protects extensive coral reefs, including some of the oldest and largest Porites coral heads in the world, along with deep water reefs, hydrothermal vent communities, and rare marine archaeological resources, and also encompasses important fishing grounds, the southernmost point in the United States, and waters surrounding one of the world’s smallest atolls. The sanctuary is also the only true tropical reef within the National Marine Sanctuary System, and is the most remote location within that system. NOAA co-manages the sanctuary with the American Samoa Government and works closely with communities adjacent to the sanctuary, all within the context of Samoan cultural traditions and practices. http://americansamoa.noaa.gov/ About Ocean Futures Society Our mission is to explore our global ocean, inspiring and educating people throughout the world to act responsibly for its protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean's vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet. http://www.oceanfutures.org/

Hokulea - Arrival in American Samoa Nainoa Thompson explains how early Samoans figured out how to create sailing canoes that could sail hundreds of miles and they figured out how to navigate using the stars so that they could migrate to distant islands such as Hawaii. He explains how Hokulea's arrival to American Samoa is significant because he and his crew want to honor Samoans because if it wasn't for their accomplishments than Hawaii would not have been discovered. He seeks their blessing and their permission before they continue their voyage around the world on Hokulea.

Footage of the second wave coming ashore in American Samoa Sep 30 - A series of tsunamis smashing into American and Western Samoa in the Pacific have killed possibly more than 100 people, according to officials. U.S. President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster in American Samoa, a U.S. territory, and ordered federal aid to help recovery efforts. A Pacific-wide tsunami warning was issued after a major undersea earthquake off American Samoa, with reports of a small tsunami reaching New Zealand and rising sea levels in several South Pacific island nations - including Tonga - and around Japan. This video shows the aftermath on Western Samoa.
