Sustainable Indigenous Leadership

Tautua is a sustainable way of leading by serving. Polynesian values are about respect, humility, kindness and relationships.

For over 3000 years, Samoan people migrated from Asia and navigated and discovered the Pacific Ocean and Pacific Islands. We navigated from Asia to Madagascar and South America, implementing ancient navigational technology.

Leadership is changing; it is all about our indigenous values-based approach. In times of crisis, we must come together, putting people first over anything in the world.

We need to change how we work and do business with the principles of TAUTUA, the new sustainable way of leading by serving and serving to lead.

The Ancient Samoan proverb:

O le ala i le pule o le tautua

The pathway to leadership is through service
