Samoan Proverbial Expressions from Fishing

According to the communal system of the Samoans, a travelling party is allowed to beg fish-hooks at the houses where they call. A wider interpretation is often given to this custom, known as MALAGAFAGA, and the begging may be extended to other objects. To get good hooks one has to ask in the houses of the TAUTAI (AFOLAU); elsewhere only inferior hooks will be offered.
"Ia uluulu matafolau."
~Go and look in the fishermens houses.

Words of encouragement: don't be negligent, but do things thoroughly.
