Manu'a Islands
  At the eastern most end of the Samoan archipelago lies the Manu'a Island group.  With a  resident population of approximately 1,700, Manu'a remains an undisturbed and strongly  culture-oriented part of the Samoan islands.  The three islands that make up the Manu'a  group are the twin islands of Ofu and Olosega, and Ta'u.  On the island of Ta'u are the  villages of Luma and Si'ufaga, which were immortalized in Margaret Mead's  anthropological study and subsequent book "Coming of Age in Samoa".  Manu'a is also  believed to be ancient Samoa; it is thought that the majority of original history, legends  and stories that make up the basis of Samoan oral traditions and formal ceremonies are  based on incidents that occurred on Ta'u island.  It is also here that some of the most  pristine and spectacular scenery in South Pacific is found.
