Abstract
Anläßlich des Teuila-Festivals reist eine Tanzgruppe der neuseeländischen Polizei nach West-Samoa. Diese Reise führt auch zwei in Auckland lebende Samoaner zurück in ihre Heimat. Tyrone Laurenson, in Auckland geboren, besucht regelmäßig seine Verwandten in Samoa; Michael Alofa, als 8jähriger nach Neuseeland eingewandert, kehrt nun nach 20 Jahren erstmals zurück. An beiden Beispielen wird die doppelte und zugleich gespaltene kulturelle Identität deutlich, die die Migranten in ihrer samoanischen Kultur verwurzelt läßt, aber mit der Zeit eine neue, an westlichen Werten orientierte Identität in Neuseeland hervorbringt.
A Cultural Group of the New Zealand Police travels to Western Samoa to perform at the annual Teuila Festival. Two group members of Samoan origin also return to Samoa on this occasion. While Auckland-born Tyrone Laurenson is on one of his visits to see relatives, Michael Alofa, who came to New Zealand with his parents 20 years ago as an eight-year-old, now returns for the first time. Both cases exemplify the split and at the same time double cultural identity of migrants who remain rooted in their Samoan culture, while over the years a new, western-oriented identity in New Zealand emerges.
