The indigenous wisdom keepers who were our forefathers understood how nature plays a major role in our existence as Samoan people through our rituals and chants that co-inside and similar with that in the version of the Bible. 

I believe Tagaloa was the sun deity and the lagis were the planetary system that orbits the sun. It is similar to the Greek God Zeus that dethroned his father Cronus in the Greek mythology, likened to our version of Tagaloa and Lufasiaitu.
