Samoan Heroes #13: Associate Professor Damon Salesa


Damon Salesa is a Pacific historian and writer who specialises in Samoan history. He was the first Pasifika person to win an Oxford University Rhodes Scholarship. ‘I never quite made it as a rugby player or basketball player!’ Damon says. ‘It was research and writing that I really loved, even though I didn’t come from an academic family.’

Friends and family will you help me publish this book on Samoan achievers for young people? The campaign ends on Saturday and we’re halfway there. If you’d like to help please go to or donate to the this account 12-3436-0072113-50. Malo faafetai 🙂
