Tulou means excuse me. Mannerism for Samoans. You always have to say "tulou" when passing in front of someone or we'll be scolded at by an elder.

This is a picture of Tongan men performing a traditional war dance called, Kailao. This picture makes me feel so overjoyed because it brings back a lot of memories growing up and embracing my culture, and it's something that I'll treasure forever. There are many cultures out there that we don't know about . So I think it's important to learn and understand someone's culture before judging them so in that way they feel like they matter and that society cares about them.
