American Samoa Villages

American Samoa ( Amerika Sāmoa, Amelika Sāmoa and Sāmoa Amelika) is an unincorporated U.S. protected territory located in the Central South Pacific Ocean, just southeast of the larger island country of Samoa.

American Samoa is a chain of five large islands and two coral reef atolls. The largest and most populated island in the chain is Tutuila, with the Manuʻa Islands(Ofu Island,Ta'u Island), Rose Atoll(Motu O Manu), and Swains Island(Olosega) also inside the territory. American Samoa is part of the Samoan Islands chain or archipelago, located 700 miles west of the Cook Islands, 500 miles north of Tonga, and some 350 miles south of Tokelau. To the west-northwest are the atoll and rocky islands of the Wallis(atoll) and Futuna island, which is a remnant of a extinct volcano with only fringe reefs. Due to American Samoa’s positioning in the South Pacific Ocean, it is frequently broadsided by tropical cyclones(hurricanes) between the months of November and April. The tiny Rose Atoll which is a uninhabited wildlife refuge, is the easternmost land border of American Samoa. Fun trivia is that American Samoa is the southernmost part of the United States boundary. Also, American Samoa is home to the National Park of American Samoa. The park protects and preserves fragile corals, reef ecosystems, thick green tropical rainforests, rare birds, mammals, fish, and the unique Samoan culture. It is well known for great hiking, diving, and snorkeling. Of the park's 13,500 protected acres, 9,000 acres are on land and 4,500 acres are ocean, coral, reefs, and atolls. Another fun fact is the park is the ONLY American national park south of the Equator.

The last U.S. census showed a sum total population of 55,520 people living in America Samoa. The full land area is 76.8 square miles, just a tiny bit more than Washington, D.C. Tuna canned meat products are the main exports, and the main trading partner is the mainland of the United States. Job salaries here are some of the lowest for ANY U.S. state or territory and borders on slave labor with hourly wages well below 10 dollars a hour. Due to this fact, many American Samoans have left the islands seeking better wages. One of the biggest employers currently is the National Football League, and more than 200 are getting good educations and are playing NCAA Division I American style college football in the states. In past years, it has been calculated that a Samoan male (either an American Samoan, or a Samoan(The Country) living on the mainland of the United States) is anywhere from forty to fifty-six times more likely to play in the NFL than a Caucasian American.

Of the American Samoa population, about ninety-one percent are native Samoans, 2.8 percent are Asians, 1 percent are Caucasian, about 4 percent are Mixed or other origin. Most people on the islands are bilingual speaking. Samoan, a language closely related to Hawaiian and other regional Polynesian languages, is spoken fluently by 91 percent of the locals, while 80 percent speak American English, over 6 percent speak Tongan, Japanese, Asian languages, and other native Pacific island languages. And some of the deaf population still uses passed down native Samoan Sign Language.

The main city and capital on American Samoa is Pago Pago. Pago Pago and the harbor region is a mixture of small villages and communities including(Siufaga, Anua, Fagatogo, Utulei, Leloaloa, Aua and Fagaalu). Pago Pago is a small town of 3600, with some tuna canneries, which provide employment for about a third of the population of the island of Tutuila. The Pago Pago harbor surrounded by high picturesque Rainmaker Mountain and the hills of Vatia and Mt. Alava, almost plunge straight into the harbor. A climb to the summit of Mt. Alava in the nearby National Park gives a bird's-eye panorama view of the hook shaped harbor and waterside towns and villages.
