Satoafaiga Family

About Our Family Research

As holder of the matai title "SATOAFAIGA" of the Satoafaiga Family in the village of Aasu, Tutuila, American Samoa, I intend to fulfill the genealogy of this family with the help of my nephew
Sipaia Fatuesi Jr., who holds the title "Iliusi" under the umbrella of the Satoafaiga Family. This will certainly help our present generation to realize that this Family is the original inhabitant of Aasu and all the land that it used to own.

In other words, by fulfilling this genealogy of the Satoafaiga and Lualemana Lineage, then the History of Aasu Village will also be understood.

The original family started when Tagaloa Leniu (Tuimanu'a)
married Ta'eleasasa of Fagafue, Tutuila. Born were: Satoafaiga (m), Maneafaiga (m), Tagaloafaiga (m), Tuatuamamafaiga (f), and the youngest is Lualemanafaiga (m). Satoafaiga bestowed the youngest brother, Lualemanafaiga, to be the first King of Western Tutuila. The King of Eastern Tutuila was Liufau.

Satoafaiga had 3 sons from Alailenuanua, daughter of Olo & Tele (hence Mt Olotele). Their names are: Tu'igafue, Ti'alefoua, & the first Tialavea in Samoa (his half-brother Tugaga became Tialavea but decided to reside in Amaua).

Satoafaiga had 2 sons from Sinalelaulii Suafa'asisina Liufau Mulitau'aupele of Laulii. Born were La'a, who became the first Fiataui'aulava, and Tugaga who became the first Tialavea of Amaua. Tuagaga's son, Faitele, became the first Tialavea of Faleapuna. So, there are 3 houses of Tialavea: Aasu (Falefia o Taupolo; Amaua (Ma'opu), and Faleapuna (Alo o Sina).

I pray to God to help me and Iliusi to complete this project by researching the branches to Muagututia Uauapua'a of Falefa in Upolu, Alo Pepe and Sataua of Fagasa in Tutuila, and the offsprings of Satoafaiga, namely, Tialavea Lineage of Aasu, Amaua, & Faleapuna; and the Satoafaiga Tialefoua Lineage to Saletele in Upolu.
