God Is Great and the Sinapioa

Part of the ceremony welcoming the newly built MV Manu’atele vessel on Wednesday, January 4, 2016, to it’s home port — Pago Pago, American Samoa — included the two fautasi — God Is Great and the Sinapioa — as well as 4 canoes, and the two government tugboats. The blare of horns added to the fanfare of the arrival. The vessel sailed from Washington State where it was built, with a brief stopover in Honolulu, Hawai’i, for crew rest, refueling and cargo before coming home. [photo: AF]
