Knowing & Learning: An Indigenous Fijian Approach

Unaisi Nabobo-Baba

2006 Fiji, Pasifika

This ground-breaking book provides an ‘insiders’ view of how an indigenous society oerceives itself and the world around it, and is set to raise the level of debate on the development of Fiji as a post colonial nation. The author has employed a decolonized ‘vanua research’ method to explore how her people, those of Vugalei in southeastern Vitilevu, acquire and transmit knowledge. By documenting the various dimensions of knowledge and their value and applications in Vugalei society, the author enables the indigenous voice to be heard.
