Samoan Heroes by David Riley
Samoan Heroes

Storylines Notable  Book Award winner 2016!

Samoan Heroes is written for Pasifika young people!

  • To encourage them to read more by providing reading material they can relate to, in language appealing to them. Many Pasifika young people have lower literacy levels than other youth in NZ, partly due to a shortage of reading material they’re interested in.
  • To inspire them with the positive life stories of achievers they know, describing the challenges these figures went through and how they overcame them to become successful e.g. most people know Dwayne Johnson as one of the most recognisable figures on the planet. But did you know that he once had to sleep on mattresses found in a rubbish collection and had only $7 in his pocket?
  • To support the preservation of historical knowledge. Our young people are proud of their cultural heritage but often know very little about the historical achievements and figures of significance in their cultural history.
