The United States and American Samoa celebrated 100 years of unity in the year 2000. The alliance between the two countries was formed in 1900, when Samoan chiefs ceded the islands of Tutuila and Aunuu to the U.S. Four years later, America was given the Tau, Ofu, and Olosega islands, as well as Rose Atoll. Swains Island became part of American Samoa in 1925.
 
The volcanic islands and coral atolls that comprise American Samoa are located in the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and Australia. Their total area is 76 square miles. Tutuila is the largest and most populated island, where the country’s capital of Pago Pago is located. The city, Samoa’s only port and urban area, lies on one of the most beautiful harbors in the South Pacific.
 
The people of American Samoa are United States nationals who owe allegiance to the U.S. The Samoan constitution provides for an elected governor, lieutenant governor, and legislature. Most of the over 61,000 people who live in American Samoa are of Polynesian descent. Their language, which is closely related to Hawaiian, is spoken along with English.
 
The design of the American Samoa stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service shows an àlia, a traditional double canoe, sailing near Sunuitao Peak on the island of Ofu.
