Delegates of American Samoa to the United States House of Representatives are politicians elected to the United States House of Representatives by the unincorporated territory of American Samoa. As an unincorporated territory, American Samoa does not have the right to elect senators, but is able to elect a single non-voting delegate to the House. The delegate can participate in, and vote, in committees. The right to elect a delegate was granted on October 31, 1978, and the first delegate was elected in 1981. So far, only two people have served in this role. Both have been members of the Democratic Party.

This is a complete List of Delegates to the United States House of Representatives from American Samoa.
