    Thank you, although editing this resource is not just for me. It's for any teacher who wants to teach accurate information about Samoa.

  • I love that Samoa is included on this website. However, as a Samoan woman I am slightly offended that the Tatau portion of this workbook only says that tatau is important for boys. The traditional female tatau for women is called the Malu and is equally as important. The tatau for women and men in Samoa is sacred and traditional - I think it needs to be edited. Many Samoan women in NZ and the pacific wear the malu - and would disagree with this workbook.

    • Hello, thank you for your efforts. Although it's incorrect once again. A Malu is not just at the back of a woman's thigh. It goes around the thighs and starts under the buttocks, stops just below the knees. A Malu is possibly, even more sacred than the Pe'a as it was traditionally only tattooed on women of high ranking - called the Taupou. I understand that I am going into some detail here - but would I use this resource with New Zealanders who are Samoan or know of Samoan culture they would disagree with the implication in your writing, that the Pe'a has more value or importance than the Malu - or that mens tattooing was more special than the womens. You also have a spelling mistake. You wrote 'tatua' instead of 'tatau' at one point. I strongly suggest that you have a researcher of Polynesian culture or a Polynesian who knows their cultures when writing these resources - especially if these will be used in New Zealand or Australia as there are many Pacific peoples who know their stuff. I'll be looking out on your careers page in the future - I would love to join the team especially if you're writing about Polynesia. As a New Zealander and Samoan, it is important to me that Pasifika culture is represented correctly.
