Historical Notes: "The London Missionary Society began work in Samoa in 1830, when John Williams arrived in Samoa and installed Tahitian teachers on Savai'i. Five years later, six English missionaries were appointed. From this point the beliefs, knowledge, and industrial gains of the West had an increasing influence on Samoan thought and action. This photograph shows a meeting to welcome the boat named after John Williams - part of a commemoration to mark the arrival of Christianity in Samoa."
