Lauaki was an orator chief, famous throughout Samoa for his knowledge of history and his political skills. He tried hard to keep Samoan traditions alive when Samoa was under German rule – a time when Samoa experienced great change. Though he died before his dream of Samoan independence could come true, his legacy would be picked up by others and Lauaki is remembered as a true Samoan hero.
Read more about how Lauaki fought to maintain Samoan traditions in my upcoming book on Samoan Heroes.
