Samoan Migration Story

Pasefika Proud is proud to launch this series of Migration and Legacy stories of our Pacific fathers. The first was launched at the Gathering of the 3000 and features Etipasi Daniells-Silva who migrated from Samoa in 1958 with dreams of becoming a “film star”. New Zealand was a strange place at first but he made his way, raised a family and his legacy lives on through his children and the people whose lives he touched. His advice is simple, follow your dreams. Credit: Historic footage supplied by Nga Taonga Sound & Vision and Archives New Zealand.
