Listing Detail Tabs

When the Banabans had to leave their ancestral homeland as a result of the devastation caused by the phosphate mining industry they settled in the island of Rabi, Fiji. Unfortunately the traumatic upheavals which the community has been through since the beginning of the century, and particularly since the Japanese occupation, have resulted in an understandable loss of confidence and a questioning of their identity and future. The Rabi born, in particular, have little conception of their rich historical heritage and former culture. This book, therefore, has been prepared to provide the present and future generations of Rabi islanders with all that has been recorded of their former way of life on Banaba from the time their forbears first settled it over a thousand years ago and created a prosperous, self-supporting and happy society numbering several thousand.
