Sapapali'i

Sapapali'i is a village on the north east coast of Savai'i island in Samoa. It is the village where John Williams, the first missionary to bring Christianity to Samoa landed in 1830.[1] Sapapali'i is in the Fa'asaleleaga political district.[2]

Sapapali'i became the second Malietoa base in the district in 1750 when Malietoa Ti'a married a woman from the village. Their son Malietoa Fitisemanu was the father of Malietoa Vaiinupo who received Williams in 1830.[3]

Sapapali'i is 8 km north of Salelologa ferry terminal and township.

Archaeology

In the 1970s, Gregory Jackmond carried out archaeological surveys inland from Sapapali'i. Jackmond, a Peace Corps in Samoa, surveyed a 20 hectare area with extensive pre-historic settlements. Jackmond later carried out field work at Palauli on the south east coast where the Pulemelei Mound is situated.[4]
