The collection of Falana’i and Lisa Ala Papadakis is a continuation of Fa’a Sāmoa, the Samoan Way. On exhibit are thirty-five artifacts from the 18th Century to 20th Century.

Despite colonialism and outside influence, Samoans continue to live Fa’a Sāmoa, the Samoan way. A culture steeped in pride of culture, family and tradition.
Falana’i and Lisa started collecting in 2007. The first artifact was a late 1800’s war club. With the expansion of their collection, they are showing their two sons the beauty and depth of their heritage.

Collecting artifacts ranging from the late 1700’s to the 1980’s, coming from the continents of America, Australia and Europe.
