Abstract: This study examines manners of thinking on population movement in Development Studies with reference to that between Samoa and Aotearoa/New Zealand. Dominant perspectives on migration point to a conventional thinking and treatment of people on the move as mere classifiable economic units. A result is a marked absence, and in some cases the misinterpretation of a cultural understanding of people whose movements transcend state boundaries. I argue that a Samoan cultural thinking provides another perspective to understanding the fluid, flexible and dynamic nature of movement for people of reciprocity and care-based societies of Oceania.
