My Su’a Name’s Heritage . . .
Nafanua the Warrior Queen of Samoa had two sons - Malietoa & Su'a. Su'a is my direct ancestor... this is why I am considered - a princess of my family, there are these documents from my great grandfather signed by him - of my genealogy - and filed in Samoa.
I am proud because I really am a princess, Samoan islanders know that Su’a is the King of Savai'i, and that Malietoa is the King of Upolu - the two main islands.
I am very proud that I am a Su'a descendant. Whenever I am around Samoans... I sometimes tell them I am a Su'a - and I always look staunch about it - because Nafanua was a woman who led the battles of Samoa, like a man.
Nafanua has many untold and brave stories of her battles. Nafanua is my eponomous ancestral relative and queen. My great grandmother - was the Queen of Savai'i, her name was Tupunatausifa'asàlele'aga.
