DAVIDSON, JAMES WIGHTMAN (1915-1973), historian, was born on 1 October 1915 in Wellington, New Zealand. He was in Western Samoa in 1949, reporting to the New Zealand Government and advising the high chiefs on independence negotiations, when he accepted the foundation chair of Pacific history in the Research School of Pacific Studies at the Australian National University.

In 1947 Professor J.W. Davidson was asked to examine political conditions in Western Samoa for the New Zealand Government. His first visit resulted in a continuing commitment to the affairs of Western Samoa. During 1949 and 1950 he was a member of the Samoa Public Service and of the Legislative Assembly; between 1959 and 1961 he was Constitutional Adviser to the Government of Western Samoa; and since Western Samoa’s attainment of independence in 1962 he has continued to be consulted by the Samoan Government. The book Samoa mo Samoa examines these questions in relation to the political evolution of Western Samoa.

Professor J.W. Davidson has been able to handle the subject from this point of view because his knowledge of the documentary sources has been complemented by a long association with Samoan affairs.

(Birth: 1 October 1915, Wellington, New Zealand. Death: 8 April 1973, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.)

To Access the 17 Pages of the book Samoa mo Samoa that mentions a lot about who the Samoan Leaders were highly recommended with there successful Political leadership for Samoa, and also the first successful Samoan businessmen, with such experiences was able to stand up against the administration and the New Zealand Government demanding freedom for Self-Government in Samoa.

Historically , A’ana was one of the predominant powers in Samoa. A’ana and Atua were never occupied by Tongans, only areas of Tuamasaga. Tuamasaga eventually becoming heavily intermarried with Tongans after Tui-Toga Talaaifeii, King of Tonga was expelled by the heroic pair of Warriors from Atua called Tapatoa and Tapuloa.

Ulumasui a desendant of the ‘Tuiatua Tualemoso’ clan finally took the name Malietoa which was called out by the King Tui-Toga to Tapatoa and Tapuloa.

At a national level, the district is home to one of the four Tama-a-Aiga titles in the Tuimalealiifano title based at Falelatai. In recent times, it has become common for both titles to be held by the same person.

The other story stated the two warriors were ‘Tuna’ and ‘Fata’ of Tuamasaga or in Savai’i island of Samoa. And the Malietoa title was given to the older brother name Savea.
