The creation of a pictorial atlas, both as a book and as an online resource, that documents American Samoa's 74 villages in terms of geography, basic statistics, and oral histories as told by the village elders.

This project will highlight the way of life on the islands to denote the different trends that the Faa-Samoa (Samoan Way of Life) has encountered since we became a U.S. Territory. The Pictorial Atlas will be comprehensive enough to include a narrative description of the origin of each village, the historical sites-if any, and significant stories from the elders on any historical event that had a major impact on American Samoa's development as a government.
