Ali’i Samoa – The Fish Head Hook
The Symbol is a combination of the Gogo (Bird), Ulu Tau (Spear Head) and Diamond Head (Taimane) representing Man’s rise to a higher stage of service and status.
The Ali’i were chieftains and an important part of Pacific Culture and History. They were individuals of higher status tasked with ensuring the continual prosperity and survival of the aiga or family.
The Ali’i symbol is made from three distinct parts and represent an individual’s resolve to serve their community. Ali’i are an ever present part of Samoan society and carry with them the respect and responsibility of their culture.
