A Race to Keep Culture

Fiji Times, Tuesday, September 27, 2011 by Ropate Valemei

THE Pacific Blue Foundation has proposed a veitau waqa ni Viti (boat race) to be part of the program to celebrate Fiji Day this year.

“As the Fiji Day program will be organised by the government, inclusion of such events as the traditional boat race will reflect the government’s support and promotion for the traditional craft in Fiji,” Pacific Blue Foundation director of government and community relations Roko Josefa Cinavilakeba said.
