The Papalagi (Der Papalagi) is a book by Erich Scheurmann [de] published in Germany in 1920, which contains descriptions of European life, supposedly as seen through the eyes of a Samoan chief named Tuiavii. It is regarded as fictional by some, such as Gunter Senft (see his Weird Papalagi and a fake Samoan chief — A footnote to the Noble Savage Myth).

It has been published in English by Legacy Editions in 1997, under the title Tuiavii's Way (ISBN 978-0-9682469-0-0).

A 1975 edition was illustrated by Joost Swarte. [1]
