Village presentation times: 12:30, 1:30, 3:05, 4:00, 4:30, 5:30

If you like to smile, even laugh – a lot – come see one of the Center’s most popular cultural demonstrations. Learn how to make fire by rubbing two sticks together, how to easily crack open a coconut using a small pebble, how to create coconut “milk” with your bare hands, and how the Samoans prepare their food (hint: it’s a man’s duty). Watch well-muscled, young natives climb 40-foot coconut trees – in bare feet. In fact, you can try your hand (or feet) at it, right after the presentation. Two words: good luck.

See real-life living quarters, cooking huts and a chief’s home, all built without nails. And then, get a taste of real Samoan food, prepared throughout the day. Matter of fact, you can help us prepare it.
