Samoan Proverbial Expressions from Fishing

*The Samoan fish-hook consists of a longish shaft of polished pearl shell, PA, and a hook made of tortoise shell, MAGA. The hook is ingeniously fastened to the pa with thin threads of coconut fibre. The whole contraption is known as MATAU, or simply, PA. To polish the pa, pieces of coral are used: the rough type called PUGA, as well as the softer 'ANA.
"Ia a le puga, a le 'ana," OR
Ia a le puga niisi, a le 'ana niisi."
~Some parts are polished with puga, others with 'ana

Upu fa'aalualu: General invitations to assist in the reonciliation of differences in parties.
