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/

In the Samoan language it is pronounced "Pahngo-Pahngo". Pago Pago is the territorial capital of American Samoa. It is on the main island of American Samoa, Tutuila. The territory is served by Pago Pago International Airport at Tafuna, some 8 miles south west of Pago Pago. Tourism, entertainment, food, and tuna canning are its main industries. The area commonly referred to as Pago Pago consists of a string of villages, each with its own village council, on the shores of Pago Pago Harbor. One of the villages is itself named Pago Pago, and in 2010 had a population of 3,656. Pago Pago may refer to the village, to the bay area or to American Samoa as a whole. The constituent villages are, in order, Utulei, Fagatogo, Malaloa, Pago Pago, Satala and Atu'u. Fagatogo is the area referred to as Town and was the seat of government until a new Executive Office Building was opened in Utulei. In Fagatoto is the Fono (Legislature), the Police Department, the Port of Pago Pago, many shops and hotels. Tourism --------------- Until 1980, one could experience the view of Mt. Avala by taking an aerial tramway over the harbor, but on April 17 of that year a U.S. Navy plane, flying overhead as part of the Flag Day celebrations, struck the cable; the plane crashed into a wing of the Rainmaker Hotel.[10] The tramway was repaired, but closed not long after. The tram remains unusable, although according to Lonely Planet, plans have been put forth to reopen it, but in December 2010 the cable was damaged by Tropical Cyclone Wilma, fell into the harbor and has not been repaired. Another noted view is that from the top of the pass above Aua Village on the road to Afono.[citation needed] The Sadie Thompson Inn, on the outskirts of Pago Pago, is a hotel and restaurant that is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. See in Pago Pago, American Samoa --------------------------------------- Jean P. Haydon Museum. A museum that showcases Samoan history, culture, and nature, it's a great place to learn about the island and become acquainted with the local culture before venturing out to other destinations. The museum features many cultural artifacts, such as clothing, art, weaponry, pottery, and tattooing. There are also artifacts from WWII. Exhibits about the island itself, including the types of plants and animals are also on display. The museum is named after the wife of the founder, who collected many of the artifacts on display in the museum.

American Samoa is classified as an unincorporated, unorganized territory of the United States. Basically, this means American Samoa enjoys diplomatic and military protection from the US, but not all of the provisions and protections of the US Constitution apply. As an unincorporated territory of the United States, American Samoa citizens classify as US Nationals, not US citizens. Most US Nationals consist of citizens of American Samoa. 2. American Samoa consists of five volcanic islands (Tutuila, Aunu'u, and the Manu'a islands of Ofu, Olosega, and Ta'u) and two coral atolls (Rose and Swains atolls).The entire territory of American Samoa consists of 117,500 square miles (30,400 square km), which is about the size of Oregon or New Zealand. However, only 76.1 square miles (197 square km), or 0.1% of the territory, is actually dry land. 3. During the deadly worldwide outbreak of influenza in 1918, the United States enforced strict quarantine regulations in American Samoa, protecting the islands and the people from the disease. New Zealand, however, who at the time held control of the Independent State of Samoa, did not enforce a quarantine, resulting in the death of 8,500, or 22% of the population in the western Samoan islands. American Samoa became one of only three places in the world (the others being New Caledonia and Marajó island in Brazil) to have prevented any deaths during the pandemic through the quick response from Governor John Martin Poyer after hearing news reports of the outbreak on the radio and requesting quarantine ships from the U.S. mainland. 4. American Samoa has a population of 54,343 for the year 2015. Tutuila island has 48,000 people alone, making up about 88% of the total population. Pago Pago is the capital of American Samoa. 5. American Samoa's waters were used as a splash landing for US astronauts during the moon landings in the 60s and 70s. A small American Samoa flag was sent to the moon on one of the missions, and later presented along with three moon rocks to American Samoa by US President Richard Nixon. 6. Weather stations detect rain 300 days out of 365 each year in American Samoa. 7. Fa'asamoa, or the Samoa way of life, still dominates the way American Samoans live. Villages center around the family, and the Matai, family chief, dictates the community activities. In addition, 90% of American Samoa land is communally owned by the Samoan families.

Shots from my visit to American Samoa last August. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to go there to film this tropical jungle paradise in the far-flung pacific islands. The people there are some of the most happy, wonderful, gracious and generous people I've ever met.

Ocean luminaries Jean-Michel Cousteau, Sylvia Earle and Nainoa Thompson share two dives on coral reefs in American Samoa, where a National Marine Sanctuary helps protect the ocean for future generations. Executive Producers - Jean-Michel Cousteau, Gene Brighouse Producer - Jim Knowlton Filmed and edited by Jim Knowlton Music - Doug Shirley Special thanks to: National Marine Sanctuary of American Samoa National Marine Sanctuary Foundation Office of National Marine Sanctuaries This film is the fourth film of the American Samoa Culture and Ocean Conservation Film Series. The stories in these short films are told by Americans Samoans and ocean luminaries, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Sylvia Earle and Nainoa Thompson, 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/

Made in 1931, this travelogue of American Samoa shows the island nation as it appeared prior to WWII, before the peace of this tiny protectorate was destroyed. Predominantly shot on the island of Tutuila, the film features rare views of traditional native life including Copra harvesting. American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the South Pacific Ocean, southeast of Samoa. It consists of five main islands and two coral atolls. The largest and most populous island is Tutuila, with the Manuʻa Islands, Rose Atoll, and Swains Island also included in the territory. American Samoa is part of the Samoan Islands chain, located west of the Cook Islands, north of Tonga, and some 300 miles (500 km) south of Tokelau. To the west are the islands of the Wallis and Futuna group. The total land area is 199 square kilometers (76.8 sq mi), slightly more than Washington, D.C. American Samoa is the southernmost territory of the U.S. and one of two U.S. territories (with the uninhabited Jarvis Island) south of the Equator. Tuna products are the main exports, and the main trading partner is the United States. At the turn of the twentieth century, international rivalries in the latter half of the century were settled by the 1899 Tripartite Convention in which Germany and the United States partitioned the Samoan Islands into two parts: the eastern island group became a territory of the United States (the Tutuila Islands in 1900 and officially Manu'a in 1904) and is today known as American Samoa; the western islands, by far the greater landmass, became known as German Samoa after Britain vacated all claims to Samoa and accepted termination of German rights in Tonga and certain areas in the Solomon Islands and West Africa.[8] Forerunners to the Tripartite Convention of 1899 were the Washington Conference of 1887, the Treaty of Berlin of 1889 and the Anglo-German Agreement on Samoa of 1899. The following year, the US formally occupied its portion: a smaller group of eastern islands, one of which surrounds the noted harbor of Pago Pago. After the United States Navy took possession of eastern Samoa on behalf of the United States, the existing coaling station at Pago Pago Bay was expanded into a full naval station, known as United States Naval Station Tutuila under the command of a commandant. The Navy secured a Deed of Cession of Tutuila in 1900 and a Deed of Cession of Manuʻa in 1904 on behalf of the US government. The last sovereign of Manuʻa, the Tui Manuʻa Elisala, signed a Deed of Cession of Manuʻa following a series of U.S. Naval trials, known as the "Trial of the Ipu," in Pago Pago, Taʻu, and aboard a Pacific Squadron gunboat. The territory became known as the US Naval Station Tutuila. On July 17, 1911, the US Naval Station Tutuila, which was composed of Tutuila, Aunu'u and Manu'a, was officially renamed American Samoa. During the 1918 flu pandemic, the 12th governor of American Samoa John Martin Poyer quarantined the territory. Because of his actions, American Samoa was one of the few places in the world where no flu-related deaths occurred. Most American Samoans are bilingual and can speak English and Samoan fluently. Samoan is the same language spoken in neighboring, independent Samoa. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment!

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.
