In this article, addressing the absences of cultural memory from existing institutional archives is accounted for in the development of new curatorial display territories, both online and in the gallery. The imperatives to claim new digital territories as extensions of homeland territories are contextualized within the discussion of the curated works in the first in a series of exhibitions titled Sāmoan Hxstories, Screens and Intimacies supported from Tkaronto/Toronto by imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival for the Indigenous world and for all Sāmoan diasporas. The co-design of new Indigenous language terms including siapo viliata are also discussed.
