Here are some pictures from the Pacific Festival of the Arts in American Samoa. We did not see all these images but they will give you a flavour of what we did experience. We are so glad that we made the decision to go to American Samoa and catch the end of the festival.

These dancers are from Tahiti, look at the drop dead gorgeous background, as well as the girl of course. This troupe looked like they were having so much fun!!

We saw these guys perform, (below) they are from Papa New Guinea and the fellow that introduced them was making jokes about the flavour of audience, they used to be cannibals!! Their dancing was fantastic, they would threaten each other with spears and clubs and then fall on the ground and lie there until the music changed, then they would get up and attack each other again, marvelous!
