      from SunlandTujungaNC / Added

      The Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council held a Region 3 Town Hall event on Saturday January 31, 2015 at North Valley City Hall. Topics included the Canyon Park Homes development, the Samoa project and the Goliath threatening our Foothill communities, the High Speed Rail. It was a great opportunity to hear Assemblywoman Patty Lopez discuss our local issues. Also presenting important information were Liliana Sanchez, Deby Ray, Lydia Grant, Dave DePinto, Mary Benson, School Board member Monica Ratliff, and City Council candidate Cindy Montanez. We were joined by community organizers and elected officials representing Sylmar, Pacoima and the City of San Fernando, neighboring communities that are also being threatened by the High Speed Rail. Representatives from Congressman Adam Schiff's office, Senator Carol Liu's office, Mayor Eric Garcetti's office and Councilman Felipe Fuente's office were also present. Thank you to David Barron and Nina Royal who organized the event. We definitely grew stronger from the knowledge and spread our wings a little farther. Please spread the information you learned to your friends, co-workers, neighbors, faith based organizations and social groups. Every community leader represents a constituency. Let's bring those groups together. There is power in numbers.

          from Jeffrey Di Gregorio / Added

          5 Plays / / 0 Comments

          In this lecture the presenter attempts to establish that there were ties between the two island groups: that inter land voyaging was possible in the ancient past and the ties between the two Island groups contributed towards the arrival, the acceptance and the establishment of Methodism in the Samoan Islands. Rev. Muasau is president of Kanana Fou Theological Seminary in American Samoa. He is an important figure in theological education in Oceania and has been active in the Ecumenical Association of Third World Theologians (EATWOT) Pacific branch for many years. He is also a strong supporter of women’s leadership in the church. Rev. Muasau holds a BD and MTh from Pacific Theological College.

                  A Cultural Group of the New Zealand Police travels to Western Samoa to perform at the annual Teuila Festival. Two group members of Samoan origin also return to Samoa on this occasion. While for Auckland-born Tyrone Laurenson, a police officer in Auckland and president of the group, it is just one of his regular visits to Samoa, for Michael Alofa, who came to New Zealand with his parents as an eight-year-old and now works in the security industry, it is the first return after 20 years. By describing the two protagonists' everyday life and work as well as their feelings about the notion of "home", the film exemplifies the split and at the same time double cultural identity of migrants who remain rooted in their Samoan culture, while over the years a new, western-oriented identity in New Zealand emerges.

                    56 min., 2003, (USA) Director-Producer: Shane Seggar. Years ago, Samoans faced disaster as a volcano erupted and destroyed all that they owned. Luckily, they escaped with their lives, but lost everything else. As they watched the lava flow down the mountainside, consuming their homes and plantations, they cried out "Aue Te Fefe--I am so scared." Today, that fear returns in the face of the gang life consuming the lives of Samoan families here in the United States. Le Afi Ua Mu: The Fire Is Burning explores the difficulties that confront Samoan youth separated from their cultural heritage. Afakasi (half-Samoan) filmmaker Shane Seggar interweaves his own experiences with those of young Samoan men in Samoa and Los Angeles as he explores the social and cultural dynamics that lead Samoan youth to join gangs in the United States.
