The Papalagi Act II

The Papalagi Act II

ByApineru

Almost a century ago the German poet Enrich Sheurmann was the first, followed by millions, to delight in the reminiscences of the Tuavian Chief, who, on his return to Samoa described to his people the Westerner, the Papalagi, and how he lives. In its simplicity and frankness it is ready at any moment to shine a blessed ray of light on the clouded heart of western man. But the time of Tuavii is already long gone. The Papalagi has not stopped his mad race and his world meantime has changed. A descendant of Tuavii, Apineru, chief of a small community left his little island for about a year travelling to the west in the seventies. In Papalagi Act II, Apineru while sitting on his mat, describes what he has seen and experienced to his family members and other islanders that visit him of evenings in his hut. Already translated and available in German, French, and Italian.
