Dec 23, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Samoa News

The U.S. government had raised concerns three years ago with its counterparts in New Zealand over statements by a Tokelau lawmaker wanting the return of Swains Islands to Tokelau, which the federal government says was "finished business," according to a cable by the U.S. State Department released recently by Wikileaks.

In saying that and reading the coments above some people shud reseaech beyond family stories and find out for sure and both stories and dont be biased the TRUTH will set you free. My ancestor was born on Olohega long before Eli ever knew it existed. You will find worldwide more indigenious peoples fighting to have lands returned to them.

A thriving community of Swains Islanders live here in American Samoa. One of the native sons is in the gubernatorial team battling for the Governor/Lt. Governor seat this November 20th elections.
