"E lele le toloa, ae ma'au i le vai" -Samoan Proverb
A duck would fly all over, but will always return to the water.
The mission of Lanuola Foundation is to develop and promote appreciation and knowledge of traditional and cultural values of Samoan and Pacific Island dance, cultural practices, and music among the general public and community through performances, participatory events, and concerts. This allows our youth and community members to view life from a much broader perspective, ultimately building healthy communities and molding them to be productive and contributing citizens of society.
Lanuola was founded on the pure love and passion for our beautiful culture and heritage, in hopes to preserve that knowledge and pass it on to the next generation.
Our vision is to empower all Samoan and Pacific Islander people through performing arts and cultural teachings and practices. We hope to one day open a space of our own where we can not only expand our vision but create a permanent home where all Samoans and Pacific Islanders can feel celebrated and empowered.
