In Samoan culture, the presentation of the 'Sua' is the hosts family's way of showing appreciation to all the families who have spared their time to come to a funeral, wedding or birthday.
Before the ceremony takes place, families will show their support to the family of the bride or groom in the event of a wedding or to the deceased person in the event of a funeral by bringing ie toga or money. This is called a si'i alofa.
Find out when the 'Sua' from the host family is given in different circumstances, who the sua is presented to and the 5 different components of the Sua.
