A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-11-04-2019I am an Old Man of Samoa, the grandson of an Old Man of Samoa. My wish is to serve the ancestors and unborn by safeguarding the lands and resources of our people. Then and only then will the sacred love of Samoa cover Samoa and joy be in our every breath in this sacred temple, this Holy Land of Samoa. I finish with a message to the Palemia and to Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi.11/04/2019 07:00 AM0:29:46Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-04-04-2019'Part 105 of a Voice of Samoa - A Return to Otara: Our people are our greatest treasure. All of our people.

A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-28-03-2019Part 104 of a Voice of Samoa: Our people's only hope is a complete overhaul of present government leaders and replace all of the corrupt ones with hopefully GENUINE God-fearing leaders first and foremost; not necessarily ones with doctorate/masters degrees from foreign universities. 28/03/2019 06:30 PM0:30:14Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-21-03-2019Our Constitution has been tampered with and its protections ignored to create opportunities for a harvesting of our motherland and resources by greedy foreign powers and local politicians. The local population are fed propaganda on public issues of national importance and the government exploits rather than protects the people. The Human Rights Protection Party refuses to justify its suicidal policies and our people are treated as second class citizens. No scholarly analyses have been undertaken by the supposedly friendly nations who surround us. We seem to be marked for destruction. On this date, I remain uncertain as to the future survival of our race and its traditional lands and resources but I remain confident that our people will rally rather than become extinct due to the treachery of our politicians21/03/2019 06:30 PM0:29:50Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-14-03-2019In Part 102 we continue to read from the Lefaga Decision paragraphs 78 onward. Finally we consider whether a court battle can protect our customary lands or whether it is a waste of time?14/03/2019 06:30 PM0:30:47Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-07-03-2019Part 101: We continue to read from the Lefaga Decision of Judge Tuala Warren delivered on 04 December 2018: paragraphs 30-77. We are setting down an oral record of this historic decision for future Samoans and historians, who may not have access to the written decision. 07/03/2019 06:30 PM0:32:38Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-28-02-2019We read paragraphs 8-29 of the Lefaga Decision in which it clearly states that customary land which is leased becomes public land and then is registered by sections 25,26 & 32 of the LTRA 2008, as the freehold private land of the Minister of MNRE. Keep in mind that there is no compensation for breaches of trust as section 79 of the LTRA 2008 provides immunity for breaches of trust. I call this a bad boy/girl immunity as it allows behaviour which is immoral and illegal to flourish and thereby breaches article 15 of Samoa's Constitution, which requires equality of treatment for all. No special privileges or advantages are allowed for some at the expense of others.28/02/2019 06:30 PM0:30:30Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-21-02-2019Part 99: 1st, we consider the English game of `pass the parcel' and how it's played. 2nd, we use that to explain the alienation of customary land unlawfully by Section 11(1) of the Alienation of Customary Lands Act 1965 as amended in 2013 and '17 and Section 32 of the Land Titles Registration Act 2008. 3rd, I analyse the Lefaga Decision released by Judge Tuala Warren on 04-12-18 and finally, I begin to read the whole decision. I can answer questions about the decision and provide a copy if you email me: fsmtaua@gmail.com21/02/2019 06:30 PM0:30:45Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-14-02-2019Part 98 The landmark and truly historic Lefaga decision by Judge Tuala Warren released on 04 December 2018 proves that leasing customary land alienates that land from its traditional owners. First, an analysis followed by comment from critics of my opinion and my replies.14/02/2019 06:30 PM0:30:23Download //
A Voice Of Samoa - Faleauto Simi Maua Taua-07-02-2019Part 97 of O Lea Lava - The Middle Path (that a child of two races walks), One day my father was told to stay home, mind the pigs and Fale but fell asleep with a fever. Tragic consequences followed. In writing his story my father felt great sadness and bitterness but recording his early life blessed others, myself included. Out of hardship can come great love and public service. All of my patriotism springs from the love of my ancestors taught to me by my father. Bless his tears07/02/2019 06:30 PM0:31:5Download //
