EXIST - Photographs & stories by the powerful @oflynns for CTRL+ALT+DEL @consciousmic_ Photo: Lanatina Sila Models: Albert Sualauvi, Tavina Moonlight @tavinayetticapaulson and Greg Duncan. Makeup: @whitleyhunt_ EXIST – A word that can create a narrative which either questions or reaffirms one’s state of mind If I was to tell you “I exist” - you would already know If I was to tell you about my existence - you would already see If I was to show you how I am existing, would you listen? To be diverse, I could exist by the norm. To be culturally diverse, it’s like, I have the option to exist by the comforts of my peers as oppose to the comforts of my ancestors…. To exist is to be present. But what is present without a past; for the past is the foundation of the narrative that we speak of.... It’s my spiritual connection, not only an acknowledgement but a physical statement. For my existence is homage, a reflection of a sacrifice worthwhile. Their vision Our art My craft The embodiment of an unmeasurable connection.... A connection that, for me, creates an inquisition to my existence and at the same time provides a level of affirmation and a deeper acknowledgement of the sacrifice for a vision.... ...A vision that was SELFLESS. ...A vision that they yearned for but knew they will not live to see. ...A vision that they had FAITH in eventually experiencing, not through the eyes of their own, but through the eyes and pure existence of their offspring. This is how I EXIST. “Paying homage to our ancestors is a privilege and we are blessed with this privilege” -House of Iliganoa, Lanatina & Sualauvi ____________________________________________________ #HouseofIliganoa #Samoan #Aboriginal #Indigenous #Birriah #Bundjalung #Kamilaroi #Fagaloa #Sauano #Lufilufi #CTRLALTDEL #ConsciousMic #Taupou #Manaia #Taualuga #SivaSamoa #Tuiga #Faasamoa #Samoan #Malofie #Sogaimiti #TatauSamoa #Tatau #Culture #CulturalAttire #Photography #CulturalPhotography #PeopleofColour #repost

Ilove'a & Tava'e at Sāmoa's main broadcasting television station TV3 with Sāmoa's iconic Lupe Lu who interviewed the girls about their humanitarian efforts while on vacation in collaboration with the reigning Miss Sāmoa & Brown Girl Woke. So proud to know that students we train in the art of siva sāmoa not only put in work in the studio but also back home where it matters most. 🙌 #Samoan #TAMAITAI #KuegisKreations #LaeiSamoa #SivaSamoa #Taupou #Taualuga #Tuiga #TheAcademyOfSivaSamoa #NonosinaStudios #MaotaOFaafiafiaga

Such an honor to have our students from The Academy of Siva Sāmoa who are also dancers of Nonosina share some TAMA'ITA'I™ choreography with the beautiful people of Sāmoa. Not only did they teach all the contestants of this year's Miss Sāmoa Pageant but also the youth of Safata and other local villages that were bussed over to the event; culminating the successful reign of the current Miss Sāmoa, Sonia Piva. Thank you @browngirlwoke @mz_tutu @sonia_piva & @samoatourism for allowing the girls an opportunity to share their passion for Siva Sāmoa. A huge shoutout to @eloveha_ @ilovea_britt34 @scanlanfamily & @tavaescanlan for representing not just TAMA'ITA'I or Nonosina but the entire diaspora of Samoans here in America that have a special love for Polynesian performing arts. See you ladies when you return!

TOMORROW will be our second day of class! Last Sunday night was our initial day of our Summer session. It was such a blessing to have my parents, my dad all the way from American Samoa & mom who's my #1 Cheerleader to be present throughout the entire day, cheering us on from their corner along with Gram 💕 Unfortunately Gram left just before our last class so she didn't make our end of the night photo with my parents. Mom & Dad along with the dream team pictured here and just a few of our brave students from our Nifo Oti Training course: 1 of 4 classes that we're offering this time around. Many of our students are unable to make these first days of class due to pre-planned vacations & obligations— however, we are so humbled and grateful for everyone's continued love and support for The Academy! Thank you all for enrolling, commenting, sharing and gassin' us lol We love and appreciate you all! *Friendly reminder to our students & parents, there is no class on Sunday only Saturday. Please frequently check the class schedules (date & time ) you've received in your Acceptance Letters. We look forward to seeing you Saturday! 🙌🥰 #Samoan #TAMAITAI #KuegisKreations #LaeiSamoa #SivaSamoa #Taupou #Taualuga #Tuiga #TheAcademyOfSivaSamoa #NonosinaStudios #MaotaOFaafiafiaga

Hoje fiz uma reunião de Status com a equipe de animação de Tuíga. Estamos na metade do projeto, e sua estreia será em outubro! 🦒 Avaliamos tudo o que produzimos, alinhamos as expectativas da equipe com os demais stakeholders e também falamos sobre melhorar alguns processos. É muito gratificante quando trabalhamos com pessoas tão dedicadas. A melhora é contínua! Dessa forma, vamos entregar mais uma série de qualidade e esse desenho feito pelo @marcosbitta não irá virar realidade! 📊😎 . . . . . #Tuiga #producao #animacaobr #animacao #audiovisual

Whenever I would walk by, I never tripped, always kept my head up high. Eventually I knew that I would find my way. After the darkest night always comes a brighter day. Some would say that turned away is all you'll get. I just said "Bet!” and never let 'em see me sweat. Cause in the end, I knew that I would have it all while non-believers were prayin' for my downfall. And some would call and tell me that they wish me well but in my heart, I'm knowin' that they wish me hell. Yo, get a real job, rappin' doesn't pay the rent. I hit the studio, cause that's where all my money went. Never surrender, it's all about the faith you've got. Don't ever stop, just push it til you hit the top. And if you drop, at least you know you gave it your all. Be true to you and that way you can never fall. #Tupac #DeeperConnection #StrictlyForMyNiggaz _____________________________________________________ Finishing off our House of Iliganoa Melbourne Photoshoot Sessions Posts with the reason we went ahead with it - our family! ♥️ Model: @florawithlovenz @wettatheathlete @floranuualiitia @wetta85 Photo & Styling: House of Iliganoa ( @oflynns ) _____________________________________________________ #HouseofIliganoa #HOIMelbournePhotoshootSessions #FloraWithLoveNZ #6WW #6WeeksWithWetta _____________________________________________________ #Taupou #Manaia #Taualuga #SivaSamoa #Tuiga #TuigaFau #Samoa #Faasamoa #LaeiSamoa #PacificIslander #Polynesian #Culture #CulturalAttire #Pacific #PacificFashion #Photography #SamoanPhotography #CulturalPhotography #PeopleOfColour

Let these words be the last, to my unborn seeds; Hope to raise this young nation in this world of greed. Currency means nothing if you still ain't free. Money breeds jealousy, take the game from me. I hope for better days - trouble comes naturally. Running from authorities, till they capture me. My aim is to spread more smiles than tears. Utilize lessons learned from my childhood years. Maybe Mama had it all right - Rest your head, straight conversation all night “Bless the dead”. #Tupac #DeeperConnection _____________________________________________________ #HouseofIliganoa #HOIMelbournePhotoshootSessions Model: @xtina_ulia_l3frost Photo & Styling: House of Iliganoa ( @oflynns ) _____________________________________________________ #Taupou #Manaia #Malu #Malofie #Tatau #Suluape #SamoanTattoo #Tattoo #TatauSamoa #Taualuga #SivaSamoa #Tuiga #TuigaFau #Samoa #Faasamoa #LaeiSamoa #PacificIslander #Polynesian #Culture #CulturalAttire #Pacific #PacificFashion #Photography #SamoanPhotography #CulturalPhotography #PeopleOfColour

This past Saturday TAMA'ITA'I was honored to be a part of the culmination of the "O a'u o le Sāmoa" program, formally known as Aganu'u Fa'asāmoa 101 or AF101. The program was facilitated by @le_gafa Le Gafa's mission is to promote and preserve the Samoan culture through oral language and Samoan verbal practices. So when they asked me if TAMA'ITA'I would like to contribute by dressing their designated taupou for the ava ceremony & providing entertainment, I was honored to assist. They share Sāmoa to the diaspora through spoken and written language & TAMA'ITA'I does so through body language & design. I decided to share with them a number I choreographed for one of our past Nonosina Summer shows. The song talks a little bit about the story of Sina and her gogosina. Before the girls began, I was compelled to speak on the reason as to why Nonosina uses the N instead of the G- as most know that the proper Samoan term is "gogosina". The use of the G in Samoan phonetics makes the 'ng' sound, similar to the 'ng' in the word 'long'. Most understand that 50 plus years ago, Nonosina was founded. But they tend to forget that 50 years ago, being Samoan (or any ethnicity other than white ) in America—was almost a nuisance. So much so, that we felt the need to conform and redesign ourselves. At the end of the day, the goal back then was to blend in. It was the American dream. One of those ways was changing letters around in your name, to make it easier for people to pronounce. For some, it was their first name so that they didn't get teased in class. While for others, it was a business move. As long as we have organizations like Le Gafa, or "O a'u o le Sāmoa" or TAMA'ITA'I or Nonosina— the diaspora will always have a space that will remind them of their culture's significance and power. That our identities are no longer something we need to hide or rearrange to appease the masses— but instead are tools to educate the world & fill it with color. Featuring my lovely girls: Jerrika Malae, Ilove'a Brittingham, Saofa'iga Faleafine, Keana Mase & Ayva Moi. #Samoan #TAMAITAI #KuegisKreations #LaeiSamoa #SivaSamoa #Taupou #Taualuga #Tuiga #TheAcademyOfSivaSamoa #Nonosin

Let’s not forget our Brown girls of Polynesia. Often we think of their homeland as a vacation destination but forget about the culture which has been altered by western colonialism. Even after European invasion in the name of missionary work, nuclear testing and the migration of military personnel; Indigenous Polynesians continue to push their culture forward. If you are traveling to Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti, or Bora Bora please be sure to learn their history and not just lay on the beach with a mango Mai tai. 🤙🏾🤙🏼🤙🏽🤙🏿 Photo Credit: @angelacarpio_

It is through these expressive means that the connection is at its most spiritual. A gateway to letting our forefathers know how relevant they are, regardless of time. Art that can never be lost, but included into the never ending archives of cultural history seeded in the ocean depths. - House of Iliganoa #CenturiesApart #SameCanvas #DeeperConnection _____________________________________________________ #HouseofIliganoa #HOIMelbournePhotoshootSessions Model/s: @wettatheathlete @floranuualiitia Photo/Styling: House of Iliganoa ( @oflynns ) _____________________________________________________ #Taupou #Manaia #Taualuga #SivaSamoa #Tuiga #TuigaFau #Samoa #Faasamoa #LaeiSamoa #PacificIslander #Polynesian #Culture #CulturalAttire #Pacific #PacificFashion #Photography #SamoanPhotography #CulturalPhotography #PeopleOfColour

Going down in Anaheim, California! The Summer Session for The Academy of Siva Samoa is FINLALLY HERE! Beginning August 18th thru October 26th This time we've added a siva samoa course for boys! Please read through the brief descriptions of each class we have to offer and decide which class suits you or your student. 1. ) NIFO OTI TRAINING: Ideal for the more advanced dancer or anyone up for the challenge. A fast paced course that will teach students how to properly twirl & how to incorporate the knife both aesthetically and appropriately into taualuga performing. There isn't an age requirement however experience is suggested but a willing heart is a must! if you have no experience but all heart COME ON DOWN 🙌 2. ) TAUALUGA ELEMENTS COURSE: This time around we'll be focusing on the different components of a taualuga. From costume making and protocols to strengthening basics & performance. The age requirement for this specific class is 14 yrs old & up. 3. ) TEINEITI SIVA SAMOA COURSE: an all girls introduction course into performing a taualuga, with emphasis on their siva samoa basics and familiarizing them with the format & expectations of an appropriate taualuga. Ages 7yrs old to 13yrs old. 4. ) TAMA SAMOA CLASS: Our newest addition to The Academy of Siva Samoa, primarily focusing on basics training, form & siva samoa protocols for male dancers. Ages 7 & Up. Again, please be sure to read all information carefully. Please don't let a misprint or misconstrued information discourage you, if you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to ask me via DM or Messenger. However, if you're ready to embark on this season's The Academy of Siva Samoa journey- send that e-mail! TO ENROLL: E-mail us at tamaitai.kuegi @gmail com with the name of the student and course in subject. Then await our reply and we'll send you forms and class schedules as they have slightly changed.
