Bruckner Chase, Uila O Le Sami
Uila O Le Sami is the formal title in Amerika Samoa given to Bruckner Chase by the High Talking Chief of the village Aunu'u in Amerika Samoa in May 2011 during a blessing and ceremony on the island moments before he began an unprecedented 9-mile crossing from Aunu'u Island to Pago Pago, the main island of Amerika Samoa. It can be translated to "Lightning in the Ocean" in English.

Chase's traditional tatau on his right arm is similar to a Samoan coat of arms with the lighting bolt cutting through the waves.
