O le vaiaso nei sa fa’atautaia ai e le Vaega o Faigafaiva a le Matagaluega o Fa’ato’aga ma Faigafaiva, se iloiloga o le polokalame o Gataifale-Fa’asao a Afio’aga ma Alalafaga i tua, e ala i ni feutaga’iga se lua sa faia i Upolu fa’apea le motu o Salafai. 

O ia feutaga’iga, sa fuafua e fa’ailoa atu ai i nu’u i tua - e ala atu i o latou sui sa ‘auai, le fa’amoemoe ‘autu fa’apea fa’atinoga o le lea iloiloga.

O tulafono a nu’u ma a’afiaga o ia poloketi, o le a va’ava’ai fo’i iai.

“O lo’o tilotilo i le ‘au’aunaga o lo’o tu’uina atu e le vaega o faigafaiva a le Matagaluega, pei o tulaga tau-asiasiga, o atina’eina o fa’ato’aga-i’a, tulaga tau-fa’ato’aga ma isi ‘auala o faigafaiva ua saunia e fesoasoani ai i afio’aga ma alalafaga i tua.

“O le tulaga lena, o lo’o va’ava’ai lava i itu uma o le polokalame.”
