The traditional Samoan dance is the Siva. This dance is similar to the Hawaiian hula, with gentle movements of the hands and feet in time to music and which tells a story, although the Samoan male dances are more aggressive and snappy. The "Sasa" is also a traditional Samoan dance, in which rows of dancers perform rapid synchronised movements in time to drums tins, or rolled mats. Its name originates from the Samoan word for "slap"; hence the Samoan "slap dance," which is accomplished by slapping different parts of the body. This was originally derived from slapping insects on the body and later became a form of dance. Dance both in its traditional form and its more modern forms has remained a central cultural currency to Samoans, especially youths.

Paper Mache Recipe
To all the people doing set design- A paper mache recipe that requires no glue or money:
1 cup water
1/4 cup flour
5 cups lightly boiling water
Mix flour into the water until mixture is thin and runny, stir into boiling water. Gently boil and stir for 3 minutes. Cool before using.
I also recommend adding about a teaspoon of salt to the mix. This stops it from growing mould.
Beware that making glue from a food product means it doesn't last forever. It lets off a horrendous smell if you leave it in it's container for more than a few days which is quite unpleasant! It is much easier to just make a new bach.
Hope this is helpful to someone!

Year 10 Core Drama - Pacific Myths
Year 12 Drama - Maori Myths
photos updated by natalie.... there is more to come
These are some photo's took in Hawaii for you to look at-
Wassup Ya'll. Taotao here with Sound for Hawaiin Myth of Pele and Hiiaka.
here are some traditional Hawaiian sounds that will be needed for the blessing at the end.
what the hells a "Link text?"
(Link for Song.): this is a pleasant song called "Akaka Falls". It's very peaceful, soothing, and laid back and contains many of the charcterisitcs needed for a traditional Hawaiin song.
Some of of these charcteristics include:
Guitar strings are tuned for major chord. (This kind of guitar is called slack key guitar.)
Hawaiian music uses very slow sliding guitars and ukuleles.
The "Laid back" effect caused by the slow and rythmic beats.
: This youtube video shows the Hawaiin song " Lei Pikake". It features a fantastic and graceful male solo voice which produces the Hawaiian language in a strong melody. It's got ukuleles, guitars, and drums as the instruments in the background.
Apart from the traditional Hawaiin music needed for the end, Sound for this myth requires:
Pacific drums- to inhance the intensity in intense momments
Wateralls- for the forrest
Wind chimes - for the dream
Egg crack- when Hiiaka comes out of the egg
Wooden frog instument- ( giv bought this in Hawaii, it makes a cool frog sound for the forrest)
Another Song that might be useful for the blessing at the end is the Fishing Dance, we learnt this in Hawaii and the dance features some simple moves which we can easily learn off. The unison of the movement brings together our drama members and creates a sense of unity as we learn about the traditions and music of Hawaii. There is no link available for this dance.
