O le viiga i le Atua ona o lana ta’ita’iga ia Samoa ma lana faigamalaga umi. Lenei ua aulia mai le 60 tausaga talu ona tuto’atasi.

Samoan’s stand tall as we celebrate who we are. We remember the sacrifice made. First made by our Lord Jesus Christ who’s blood was spilt for all humanity. Secondly, our ancestors who’s blood was split for Samoa.

Go out and spread the word that Samoa is free and will only serve God!

Happy 60th Samoan Independence Day CUSSA 🇼🇸
