Fiji Redux. Check out some photos from our recent south pacific expedition… some day soon I’ll finish stitching panoramas and will post them.
Despite its remote location, Fiji has a fascinating cultural history. A particularly difficult issue fascing Fiji today is the land rights of the Indo-Fijian population. Brought to Fiji as indentured servants during the 19th century, Indians became a dominant cultural force on the islands. After servitude was banned in the early 1900s, Indian families were granted century- long leases on native Fijian land. Four generations later, the leases are up and many Indians are finding themselves without rights to the land they’ve always known as home.
