'Writing the New World' researcher Vula Utonivaya and 'Pacific Texts' researcher and student Adi Inoke discuss Indigenous Fijian voices in 'Na Mata': a nineteenth and early twentieth century colonial Fijian government newspaper.
In celebration of 2020 Fijian Language Week, this podcast discusses the importance of early Fijian language texts; as a way to remember long forgotten proverbs and idioms and historical events which resonate with us today.
Happy Fijian Language Week! Vinaka vaka levu Vula and Adi. Enjoy!
