We’re the Northrup’s

O le ala i le pule o le tautua

Our diversity is our greatest challenge, and our strength. We’ve struggled in our family, and in our marriage and have discovered the need to find our own road.

We chose “The Vā as the name for the channel because Vā is a Samoan word with great significance. It’s literal translation is space, or a gap between two things. It is the word that is also used for “relationship”. Vā is also the foundational Samoan value of propriety. It defines the proper way of respecting and interacting with one another. It’s the unwritten code of conduct that exemplifies an honorable life for a Samoan.
