Samoan fables website launched

(23 May 2014) The website Fāgogo: fables from Samoa was launched last night at the University of Auckland Fale by the Samoa Consul-General in Auckland, Mr Faaolotoi Reupena Pogi.

The launch was part of the School of Pacific Studies event to celebrate the commencement of Samoan Language Week 2014 (25-31 May).

This University of Auckland Library website presents a selection of Samoan fables among a large collection recorded in Samoa in the 1960s by Professor Richard Moyle, and held in the Archive of Maori and Pacific Music.

This valuable online resource narrated in the Samoan language also contains Samoan and English texts which adds to the Library’s extensive Pacific resources for students and staff.
