frameworks. Accepting this diversity, there are some characteristics of a narrative that are quite common across the literature ( Bruner 1991 ; Jones and McBeth 2010 ; Patterson and Monroe 1998 ; Polkinghorne 1991 ; Somers and Gibson 1994 ). A narrative sets a sequence and order to events occurring in a defined place and time, often structured as beginning–middle–end.

observations of plants, animals and the atmosphere guides decisions on fishing, farming, and other daily activities ( Malsale et al. 2018 ). The government and community members are keen to understand linkages between contemporary science and traditional knowledge based on environmental, ecological, and astronomical indicators, and the development of seasonal calendars is seen as a component of this. An initial seasonal calendar for Samoa was developed via a literature review, heavily relying on the work

( Farbotko 2010b , 225–226). It is insisted that climate change is inherently global ( Hulme 2010 , p. 272; Miller 2004 ) and fundamentally a phenomenon of climate : a statistical aggregation of long-term, precise measurements (see Ingold and Kurttila 2000 , p. 187; Miller 2004 ; Strauss and Orlove 2003 ). Anthropogenic tampering with the atmosphere does not result in specific weather events but merely “loads the dice” in a stochastic system; no individual (visible) event can be attributed with
