Article excerpt: For over three thousand years the Samoan people, their legends and myths have stood firm against the occupying forces of the European and other foreign nations to retain the independent birthright to the ten South Pacific islands that they call home, a position they finally achieved in 1962. Since then they have re-established their right to be amongst the 'superpowers of the Pacific.' Of these islands, Upolu, where the capital of Samoa, Apia is based is the most populated and Savai'i, the largest but second in terms of population.  Since independence the Samoan's have re-established their own culture onto the island lifestyle and they have acted as guardians of this tropical paradise, helping to create a tourists dream in one of the world's most beautiful locations, situated mid-way between Hawaii and New Zealand.
