2022 is a significant year for the Samoa community, being the 60th Anniversary of Samoa Independence. 

Samoa has a unique historical relationship with New Zealand. It is the only nation that which New Zealand has a Treaty of Friendship. The Treaty of Friendship between Samoa and New Zealand is about a commitment to partnership, friendship and a mutual endeavour to obtain for the Tagata Samoa fuller opportunities for social progress. Language is critical in achieving this.
