The research presented in this thesis revolves around two collections of material culture from Samoa, accumulated in the early 20th century, and now in museums in Germany. As such, it reviews issues such as general Western perceptions of Samoa and resulting collecting strategies. It also presents a listing and discussion of the two collections as well as the material culture of early 20th century Samoa in general.
