Title: Holiday: April 17 Independence Day or Secession day?

Samoans take part in most Christian holidays, but they have their own version of Independence Day on April 17, the day they became associated with the United States.
It is a great time to be near Pago Pago or Fagotogo on the malai (open grass park) on Tutuila and see all the village bands, choirs and dances.
