Samoan Sign Language is the deaf sign language of Samoa.

"A lot of" Samoan Sign Language is based on Australian Sign Language, though there are local signs for Samoan food.[1] It's not clear if this means Samoan Sign Language is related to Australian Sign Language, or if it merely has lots of loanwords from Australian Sign Language.

A short dictionary has been compiled for Samoan Sign Language, and evidently a separate dictionary has been compiled for American Samoan Sign Language.[2][3] "American Samoan Sign Language" may just be American Sign Language as used in American Samoa.[4]
