Fijian Indian Food Club

About Us

Food is an expression of our cultural identity. It ties us to our heritage. Culture and its heritage reflect and shape values, beliefs and aspirations, thereby defining identity. In this instance, the Indian identity of the descendants of the Indentured Labour System in Fiji.

Indian food, knowledge, traditions, language, dress etc are just some of the cultural traits that define our evolutionary identity in Fiji and are therefore very important. Culture helps us understand our ancestral values and gives us the meaning of life.

Historic preservation is the visual and tangible conservation of our cultural identity. Food and traditions are aspects of our cultural identity with which can interact.

Join me by contributing a sense of comfort and belonging to our Fijian and Indian heritage. Help bring people of our community together and stay connected through FOOD, STORIES AND TRADITIONS, for PRESERVING THESE RECIPES IS PRESERVING HISTORY and leaving a LEGACY.
