Vaiaso o le Gagana Samoa Aso Sa 30 Me – Aso To’ona’i 5 Iuni
Samoan Language Week Sunday 30th May – Saturday 5th June
This year’s theme for Vaiaso o le Gagana Sāmoa - Samoa Language Week 2021 is Poupou le lotoifale. Ola manuia le anofale which means Strengthen the posts of your house, for all to thrive.
When you’re building a foundation for afale (house) it can’t have a weak foundation or posts. This is the same for the foundations of our families, schools, and churches that play an important role in strengthening Gagana Sāmoa (the Samoan Language). Language is important for the foundations of our overall wellbeing.

Tokelau Language Week
Te vaiaho o te gagana Tokelau
The 2020 Tokelau Language theme is ‘Apoapo tau foe, i nā tāfea i te galutau. Ke mau mai, ke mau mai’ which in English translates to, 'Never give up hope, even amidst chaos and much uncertainty. Stay united, stay strong'.
The theme “Apoapo tau foe, i nā tāfea i te galutau” is part of traditional Tokelauan prayer, asking the people rowing a canoe to hold on dearly to the paddles and row in unison so we are not washed away by the tidal/big waves. “Ke mau mai, ke mau mai” is an encouragement to be strong and maintain rowing consistently/non-stop. This year's theme was influenced by the events of 2020 and how the COVID-19 outbreak has shaped a new normal for the Tokelau community and everyone worldwide.

The theme for Samoa Language week is 'Tapena sou ōso mo lau malaga' which in English means 'Prepare yourself a gift for your travels'.
This year's theme urges us to prepare for the journey ahead. It highlights the need to honour, respect and share the gifts of our life's journey.
As Pacific Peoples when we prepare for travel, we take our traditions with us, allowing us to share our ōso (gifts/food) with everyone we meet along the way. And with these gifts we build, nurture and strengthen our language, culture and identity.
