Samoa Independence Day
Samoan Independence Day is a significant public holiday in Samoa. It is celebrated on June 1 every year. This is the day when the country achieved its independence in 1962 when the command of New Zealand over Samoa ceased.
The day is observed by school kids, cultural communities, religious groups, sports teams, longboat squads, and all other types of people. Samoan Independence Day is also observed by the Samoan communities in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and other states in the U.S.
