'Ava Ceremony

I had the great honor to participate in an ‘ava ceremony at the home of some amazing District 33 residents!

The ‘ava ceremony is an ancient Samoan ritual that is performed at the beginning of all important services and gatherings. Typically led by the high chief of the hosting village, the ceremony begins with words of welcome as the participants sit cross-legged on the floor in a circle or semicircle. The proceedings include the preparation and consumption of an ‘ava drink.
The Ava Ceremony was led by Auimatagi Tialino performed at home of Leaupepe Tuiatua.

Thank you. It is great to have their support!
