H οικογένεια Σαμαρίτη, η οικογένειά μας, έλκει την καταγωγή της από τη Σκαλωτή Σφακίων. Μία από τις πιο παλιές και πολυάριθμες οικογένειες των Σφακίων με πολλά ενεργητικά μέλη που διαδραμάτισαν πρωταγωνιστικό ρόλο στην ιστορία της Κρήτης. Λόγω του διχασμού και του υπερήφανου και εκρηκτικού χαρακτήρα των γνήσιων Σφακιανών, η οικογένειά μας βίωσε τον ξεριζωμό. Ο τόπος που τους φιλοξένησε βρίσκεται στους πρόποδες του Γιούχτα. Πολύ γρήγορα όμως, έγιναν οι κεφαλές του τόπου αυτού γιατί όπως συνήθιζε να λέει ο παππούς της οικογένειας: "Ο Σφακιανός όπου κι αν βρεθεί θα κάνει καλιμέντο". Υπερήφανοι για την καταγωγή μας διατηρούμε μέχρι σήμερα τα ήθη και τα έθιμα των γνήσιων Σφακιανών ακόμα κι αν βρισκόμαστε μακριά από την πατρογονική γη μας. Οι γυναίκες πιστές στην παράδοση του νοικοκυριού αλλά και της αμίμητης γνήσιας Σφακιανής κουζίνας, διατηρούν μέχρι σήμερα τα σκήπτρα στην κρητική γαστρονομία.
