Written By : Mahen Icha Prasad . The Fiji Law Society president has got it partly correct when he says Fijians are the first people or natives of Fiji and they think they have superior rights to the others.
The fact is that the Lapita people were the first people. The Taukei came later.
As for being natives or indigenous people, it raises the obvious question: “Natives or indigenous to which country?”
Like Indians their ancestors also came from another country.
