Surnames: Taualii, Nofutolu, Afualo, Fonoimoana, Fonokimoana
My Great-Grandfather x3 was Fonokimoana Afualo, I believe he lived in Savaii, but my Great-GrandfatherX2 and him had a falling out. His name was Opapo, he was married to Toai. Opapo was a healer and was suppose to take the position of King of Samoa, but refused because he wanted to preach instead. Fonokimoana was furious, so Opapo left and founded Sauniatu, changed his last name to Fonoimoana so that people would not know who his father was. He took his grand-daughter Lalomalave and renamed her "Lemao" and kept her as his own. She learned the medicine from him and eventually passed it on to me. The man she married is from the house of the high priest of Mana, although he practised a christian religion, his name was "Ualifi Tupou Luamanuvai Taulapapa Tauali'i"
My grandmother said that before Opapo left Samoa for Hawaii, Fonokimoana and Opapo did make up and became close before the father passed away. I have a cousin, Pago who is an Afualo. His father followed my Grandfather to Sauniatu and served him. Pago lives around Kahuku Hi now.
