Culture & Traditions

Some know about of Fiji

TRADITIONAL DRINK- KAVA

Kava is produced using the foundation of a pepper plant. The root is ground into an excellent powder and blended in with water to make a cloudy beverage that seems like puddle water. Its gritty taste makes your lips shiver, while a sensation of unwinding washes over you. Kava is appreciated among companions, work associates, family, and in both formal and casual settings. The specific principles and customs fluctuate from one spot to another and from one gathering to another. Yet, it’s helpful to know the fundamental etiquette of a kava service before you plunk down for your first bilo.

TRADITIONAL FIREWALKING

This fire strolling act has no tricks and isn’t the kind of hot coal fire strolling you may have seen at hotels or during road exhibitions. On Beqa, stones are set on fire for quite a long time before men of the town play out a function and stroll across them. This capacity to stroll on the hot stone without being injured has been given from one age to another. It comes from a period where a Fijian hero acquired this ability to walk without being scorched by a soul god who once lived inside an eel. The soul god inside the eel gave the hero this capacity in return for an opportunity.

GIFTING TRADITION
Numerous villages in Fiji expect guests to participate in a sevusevu (gift-giving function) before coming into their local area. This implies you can’t stroll in any place you please. You’re relied upon to bring a little gift (generally kava) at whatever point you enter a Fijian town as an outsider. The village headman, called the Turaga ni Koro, will at that point meet you and likely offer kava with you to represent your greeting into the local area.

There are a lot of things which can be done apart from the typical touristy places. If you want to know about their culture, try exploring on foot and learn more about the natives.
