Samoan Dynasty LOGO is inspired by the “Va’a” (Canoe) a traditional Tatau or Pe’a (tatoo) design that rests on the lower back of a Samoan Chief. The Va’a (Canoe) represents the aiga (family) which the wearer of the tatau (tatoo) must protect. It also speaks of what is expected of a man & woman knowing how to sail a canoe and fish to survive. These values of protection and service should always be represented in every family today.
I witnessed first hand my brother High Chief Muāgututi’a Ryan Anoa’i honored the rite of passage from my father and bravely endured 3 days of pain to be standing strong today as a Samoan Warrior. My father High Chief Pesetā Tumua Anoa’i was also the closest to his brother/cousin High Chief Fa’anene Peter Maivia who also wore the Tatau (tatoo) proudly while wrestling worldwide representing Samoa……….. Reno J Anoa’i aka Count of California “Black Pearl”.
#FunFact The word tattoo in the English language is believed to have originated from the Samoan word “tatau”.
