Fiji's past was a dark one. Even today, most of what happened in the past is still a mystery. It was a divided land, whose borders were drawn by rivers of blood. Fijians were once known to be the most ruthless people in the pacific realm, ferocious warriors and a dangerous people to come into contact with. Giants were said to have warred with each other in Fiji. It is where gods were said to have been slain by mere man, and where demons fought alongside warriors. A very dark world. In Fijian those days were called,'gauna ni tevoro'...the time of the devil. A chiefs house is said to be equivalent to the height of a 4 storey building, and canoes that were equal to none at that time.<quoted text>
LMFAO! hilarious! Can you tell me more about Fiji and it's culture? I would like to know more about Fiji and Tongans.
A place where Afro hair was seen as holy and held in great regard. Missionaries were brutally murdered and eaten just for touching the fro. Hahaha. The whole of Polynesia knew about Fijians, and Fijians knew nothing about their existence lol. When a Fijian straggler strays from Fiji, he makes history in wherever in Polynesia he goes. It was said that a Samoan chief was hunted down all the way to Hawaii by furious Fijian men.
Fiji is a very dark place.
Tonga on the other hand was Fiji's closest friend and ally. It was as if they were just one of the kingdoms of Fiji warring around as usual. Tonga as a people were united and had brilliant kings that knew how to rule its people. They scaled heights that has become a sense of pride even for Fijians, because we were mingling very heavily. This is the two most active places in the past in terms of civilization and human activity.
But today, we Fijians are the friendliest people on the face of the earth, ironically. lol. A humble and quiet people. A Fijian wouldn't think twice about taking the shirt of his back just to help a stranger. We love everyone, Indians are loved aswell, but not as much as the rest of humanity hahaha.
