The workshop examines the role of culture and fiction in the representation of the Samoan Woman. The impact of westernization or Americanization in terms of migration and social and cultural change as they pertain to Samoan women is discussed. Underlying these issues is the increasingly vocal voice of Samoan women in indigenous and migrant Samoan communities'. Participants will be engaged in panel and small group discussions as well as view video presentations of fictional works and poetry readings by Samoan artists such as Sia Figiel, Momoe Malietoa-von Reiche, and Sano Malifa which presents a view of Samoan women totally different from palagi representations in popular media. The Workshop proposes a media-friendly and culture-friendly representation of Samoan Women that best and more truthfully portrays them as vibrant, productive and integral members of society not just in their native homeland but in their adoptive communities in mainland USA.
