Samoa Quiz

Samoa, officially the Independent State of Samoa, formerly known as Western Samoa, is a country encompassing the western part of the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific Ocean. It became independent from New Zealand. The two main islands of Samoa are Upolu and Savai’i, one of the biggest islands in Polynesia.
Samoa was admitted to the United Nations on 15 December 1976. The entire island group, inclusive of American Samoa, was called “Navigator Islands” by European explorers before the 20th century because of the Samoans’ seafaring skills. – Wikipedia
