Did you know that the English word 'tattoo' is supposedly derived from the Samoan word 'tatau'? Find out about the traditional methods still used by Samoans to apply the amazing tattoos worn by many of the islands' people today. In this book you will discover that an 'ie toga is a beautiful and intricate fine mat, woven by Samoan women and used as highly prized gifts, which are made and given to celebrate important occasions.
