Racism Against Samoans Question & Thesis History HISTORICAL
All Samoans eat a lot ECONOMICAL
Samoans are not intelligent SOCIAL
All Samoans are related How are the different stereotypes formed for Samoans?

Although many stereotypes are created by people who come into contact with a certain race, there are historical, economical, and social events that explain how these stereotypes came about. - First group of Samoans arrived in 1919
- Expansion of Mormon temple - known as "fob" (fresh off the boat)
- Reasons this could be?
- The way parents influence kids
- more leaning towards sports - 80% of young adults and women in Hawaii are overweight
- Part of the culture to prepare a lot of food, and is seen as disrespectful to not finish your food. - Different because Samoans too believe this stereotype.
- Samoans stick together. - Create groups in places where they are minorities.
- Get close to the point where they call each other family
- Call an elder "aunty" or "uncle" out of respect. - First ethnic group that came here other than for plantation work - The Umu.
- often used for special events or "to'ona'i" on Sundays - Big names are sports related, nothing about education or a high ranking position- not enough money to buy education related materials References Hawaiian roots.
