American Samoa

preserve simplicity, Samoan Siapo (Paper Mulberry Tree), U'a / Tapa Cloths-


sweetness, kindness, enthusiasm, jokes, order, rules, nature, wild


leave your shoes outside, bow, light incense, use scents/aromatherapy infusions everywhere (Lemongrass, Ylang Ylang, Citronella, Jasmine, Plumeria/Frangipani), create shrines/alters, pray, smile, ceremony, respect, Thai massage


if you can't bring light to the dark, bring color to it, "I'll see you when you see me," gratitude


women complement each other - “you’re so beautiful,” tea, adorn everything, lanterns & glow, Vietnamese hot chocolate
