What an achievement! Salesa wins Marsden Fund.

"One of the things Damon talks about is that a lot of the time, many of the books that are produced out of Samoa, whether they be historical or otherwise, are accounts from the chiefs, the matai.
“But a lot of the research that Damon has done when he goes to the archives, many of the accounts he reads are interviews and accounts from the commoners,” said Mrs Salesa who is Tongan.
Kusa, a ou faikau i ikuaiga kala faapegei, ka ke igoigo pipilo lava.
E leai gi commoners i Samoa, ga'o le au faipopo ma le au mu maka i le afi, ae e o'o uma lava i le kofi pe'a lava le tautua i aiga.
O le uiga lena na fai ai a le upu "O le ala i le pule o le tautua".    
Congratulations, this is exciting!
