This is an excerpt from the novel "Girl in teh Moon Circle" by Samoan writer Sia Figiel. I use this as a short story in my classes. It describes the arrival of the first TV in the island nation of Samoa and the impressions it brings of the Palagi (whites/Europeans).
This 17 page file includes the full text of the excerpt just as it appears in the novel. It also includes a listing of Samoan terms with their English approximations.
A complete lesson is outlined with the resources attached.
