3. FA’ASUAMALEAUI’S DESENDANTS CONFERRED THE MATA’AFA TITLE ON HON FONOTI MATA’UTIA IOANE BROWN IN 1939: Refer to book ‘Tama a Aiga’ by M. Tuimalealiifano
– Fa’asuamaleaui is the eldest (O le Alii O Aiga) son of Tuimavave from his first spouse Salaina’aloa. As Silupevailei younger from Tuimavave third spouse Letelesa.
– Fa’asuamaleaui Mata’afa + Leativaosalafai – Lagi Muagututi’a line.
– Fonoti Lotofaga line – Lagi Muagututi’a – Leativaosalafai + Mata’afa Fa’asuamaleaui in Amaile
– Mata’afa Amaile title was always held by Fa’asuamaleaui line until in 1939 that Fa’asuamaleaui’s desendants conferred the Mata’afa title to Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown, and Silupevailei line for the first time lodged a claim in court for the title by installing Fiame Faumuina Mulinu’u (i). The court decision ruled in favor Silupevailei line to have rights for the first time to the Mata’afa title and conferred it to Fiame Faumuina Mata’afa Mulinu’u (i) of Silupevailei line.
– Why was the title allowed to moved from one line to one that had never held it before? The answer may lie in Mulinu’u’s connections.
– Fiame Faumuina Mata’afa Mulinu’u (i) died in 1949 and the two family line Fa’asuamaleaui and Silupevailei in court. Silupevailei line argued and asked the court to give them another turn on the title as they only held it for 10 years. So the court in 1949 accepted the argument, and awarded the title to the deceased titleholders son Fiame Mata’afa Faumuina Mulinu’u (ii), and Fa’asuamaleaui line to have the next turn to the title Mata’afa.
– In 1977 Fiame Faumuina Mata’afa Mulinu’u (ii) died and the two family line Fa’asuamaleaui and Silupevailei in court. The decision was made back in 1949 by the court for Fa’asuamaleaui line for there turn to the title, and the title Mata’afa was conferred to Fa’asuamaleaui Pu’ela of Vaiala in 1977. NOTE: The court in 1977 did not made any decision on which of the two family line to have the next turn to the title.
– Fa’asuamaleaui Pu’ela died and the title Mata’afa is vacant to this day..
– Fa’asuamaleaui line desendants conferred the Mata’afa title on Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown back in 1939 still stands..

4. NOTE: TITLE FIAME LE SA’OFAAPITO OF LOTOFAGA: Only the Va’aloa and Va’asa line have made claim and successor to the title at this stage. They are the two daughters from the four children of Fiame Muagututi’a of Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi at Lotofaga Atua. Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown is a direct desendant of Va’asa. Hon Fonoti Mata’utia Ioane Brown family the Sa-Fonoti of Va’asa line Lotofaga and Va’aloa line with Mata’afa Faumuina Mulinuu family are the successors to take turns on the title ‘Fiame Le Sa’ofaapito’ ma le Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi i Lotofaga, Atua.

5. FONOTI OF LOTOFAGA WITH FIAME LE SA’OFA’APITO AND LE AIGA PAIA O SA-LEVALASI IN LOTOFAGA ATUA: Fonoti of Lotofaga is the true heir of Va’asa, the daughter of Fiame Le Sa’ofa’apito Muagututi’a and Le Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi in Lotofaga Atua. If the family wants to decide on someone to be bestowed with the title Fiame Le Sa’ofa’apito when the high chief (Sa’o) dies, Fonoti of Lotofaga is the one to face the Aiga Sa-Fiame and the Sa’ofa’apito. The title Fonoti of Lotofaga is also the true heir of Taufagalupe, the daughter of Seinafolava at Lotofaga, the first Teoteo title who is mostly respected by Le Aiga Pa’ia o Sa-Levalasi. The title Teoteo is an ‘igagato’, a title name given from afioga Leota To’omata of Falelimu Solosolo to Taufagalupe. Sumuane’s sister who was the wife of the Alii is the cause of the relationship between Sa-Levalasi and Leota To’omata. That pule ends with the title Fonoti of Lotofaga the Sa-Fonoti Va’asa’s true heirs.
