Solomon Islands


TheCoconet - Tama Uli

Oscar Kightley is in Samoa to explore his Solomon Island Ancestry. He discovers how these ‘Tama Uli’ or ‘Black People’ as they’re also known, came to Samoa over 100 years ago. He also learns about the legacy they left behind and the difficulties they still face today.

This is a great mini-documentary talking about the history of Solomon Islanders indentured labourers in Samoa and the land-grabbing happening at Sogi Village currently by the Samoan Government.
