Samoan Proverbial Expressions from Fishing

Faimea are those TAUTAI (fishermen) who are clever at making fish-hooks. UTU is the bamboo receptacle in which the hooks are kept. FA'AOTI (from OTI, to die) is a figure of speech for fa'auma (completely, so that nothing is left.) If a visitor comes to the faimea to get a fish-hook, the latter should empty the receptacle completely and not hide any hooks.
"Sa'a fa'aoti le utu a le faimea"
~Let the fisherman's bamboo receptacle be completely emptied out.

In a discussion, one should share their opinions without reservations, only then can the right decision be reached. During a reconciliation, all parties should openly confess the cause of their dissatisfaction, so that permanent peace be reached.
