FIGHTING FOR THE NAME FIJIAN: As those (especially overseas) want to retain FIJIAN exclusively for the native Fijians, they forget that it was Rabuka and his coupists who called themselves the Taukei Movement
And in a most recent Q & A interview with Fiji's Newswire, SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka claimed that it was he who had suggested in
Basically, in 2017, SODELPA leader Rabuka is claiming that FijiFIRST stole his suggestion and has made it as its own in the 2013 Constitution
Sitiveni Rabuka and Inoke Kubuabola called their treasonist group the Taukei Movement, the word signifying indigenous FIJIANS
Fijileaks: We wonder if Rabuka meant 1997 and not 1987? For, in 1987, Rabuka and his marauding horde of racists masking as nationalists, and led by the Taukei Movement, were
"Indian [Indo-Fijian] women have been gang-raped by Fijian soldiers, picknicking children beaten and made to eat cow dung for ignoring Sunday restrictions and [Indo-Fijian] villagers forced to bathe in raw sewage."

Who gives a phuck what the inhabitants of Fiji call themselves? What matters and what is important is that all the citizens are treated equally, with respect and dignity . And that includes the First Nation people and all others who live and call Fiji home.

Marauding horde of racists, really. victor? The taukei Movement were groups of wharfie thugs recruited by Rabuka in 1987 to carry out extra legal and fear mongering to get people to accept Rabo's coup. They were thugs and former criminals. They did not represent the values of the indigenous people. Rabuka's choice as Leader of SODELPA was a big mistake. He does not come across well on television and he is old school, out of touch with the youthful voter. One of the lessons from the recent NZ elections is that it's not too late to change the Oppodition leader. As a result Labour may well be forming the next Govt with Vincent Peters in a new coalition Govt.

Both Chiku and Ratu make good points that I like.

IT makes me wonder whether or not ALL those itaukei names mentioned after Rajendra Chaudhary’s FB postings are, indeed, in agreement with RC’s pathetic views...??? RC is amongst the very of few of us, Fijians – Indo-Fijians, who can also claim to be called (as and when it suits him) as a ‘Haryana rooted Indo-Fijian’ as well.

Chiku,Ratu and Refugee there is time for change as of Now.I totally agree with you all.Who are Fijians? We are all Fijians born bred and reside in our Country which became known and rubber stamped by the British in 1874.Under divide and rule the Taukei live in villages,Kai Idia on the leased lands and others in various settlements and later in Towns.So for purpose of identifications we coined words to give names to differentiate racial groupings.

Interesting these claims for the application of the ENGLISH term 'Fijian'? There is correspondence handwritten fifty years ago where Fijian is used on multiple occasions as a description of a person or institution deriving from or born in Fiji. No racial or ethnic tag simply a Human Being or an entity from Fiji. How rational and how sensible just like Mauritian, Jamaican, Trinidadian, Bahamian, Floridian, Californian, Argentinian, Chilean etc ad infinitum. In 1990 however, a renewed Fijian Passport was refused to two children and myself despite our nationality in London? Who was responsible for this bureaucratic bungling?

The iTaukei Movement was nothing more than something based out of false ideas that Indo-Fijians would overwhelm indigenous Fijians.
