Preserving our culture

Dear Editor,

I agree with the points raised in your story “Samoan cultural identity in danger.”

First and foremost we need to have a committee that specifically organized like the true “Wisdom Keepers” of old that enhances our Culture which includes traditional healing medicines, Original dances, understanding mythology, traditional navigational skills that enhances understanding of the Cosmos and Oratory application etc. 

We need to go back to the Old Ways and let go of the fictional ways or the Palagi ways. 

We let go of our Natural Identity which is God given to the indigenous people and we uphold the Western ways that brings death and destruction of every culture.
