A piece of history

Populated for about 3,000 years by a Polynesian people, Samoa was occupied around 1000 BC Jacob Roggeveen was the first Dutchman to identify the archipelago in 1722.

In 1768, the French explorer Louis-Antoine de Bougainville passed the archipelago which he named the Navigator Islands. The first European navigator to set foot on one of the islands of the archipelago was Jean François de Galaup, count of Lapérouse in 1787.

He landed on the island of Tutuila (now in American Samoa) before being attacked by the population. His second in command, the Viscount of Langle and 11 crew members were killed. These first difficult contacts between Samoans and Europeans gave to the archipelago the reputation of being not hospitable consequently of which this one was little visited.
