INDEPENDENT STATE OF SAMOA: SIVA SAMOA

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Siva Samoa is the Samoan term for a Samoan traditional dance. Traditional Samoan dancing is one area of the culture that has been the least affected by western civilization. It requires the dancer to retain grace; movement of the arms and hands are done so in a subtle but delicate manner. In earlier times, high chiefs or matais performed this special dance but in modern day it is performed by a taupou. A version of Siva Samoa, called Mak Saʻmoa, is a popular traditional dance style in Western Samoa.
