Samoans have been here for at least 3 millennia possibly much longer.
Then the palagi or white man came along only very recently:
- Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen happened upon the islands in 1722.
- In 1768, French Admiral Louis de Bougainville visited the islands. He was so impressed with the Samoan's numerous canoes and their great skill in handling them that he gave Samoa its original European name, "The Navigator Islands."
- French navigator LaPérouse lead the first expedition to set foot on Tutuila. LaPérouse first arrived in the Samoan archipelago, then called the Navigator Islands, in December of 1787.
- The London Missionary Society's Rev. John Williams, who roamed the South Pacific in the Messenger of Peace, landed the first missionaries in Samoa in 1830
