Nai Yau Vakaviti: Na Ka Mareqeti

FIJI COLLECTION PROJECT
OCT 2016 - JUNE 2017

Treasures from Fiji are the second collection group to be explored as part of the Pacific Collection Access Project. The Fiji Collection includes over 1500 objects. 'Nai Yau Vakaviti: Na Ka Mareqeti' is the name the Fijian community has gifted to the project.

The project was officially launched on Saturday 1 October 2016.

Tarisi Vunidilo, from Natokalau, Yawe and Kadavu, a Professional Teaching Fellow at the Centre for Pacific Studies, University of Auckland says:

"Involving our youths in this project is vital and to see many attending and participating in the cultural dancing and singing on Saturday [the day of the project launch] was so inspiring. I look forward to working with our young people and our elders in capturing their stories to be included in our Nai Yau Vakaviti: Na Ka Mareqeti Museum Project”
