    Created by third year undergraduate History students at USP, this project is an attempt to document some of the historical sites of Fiji. It is our hope that this prototype is the beginning of a conversation with the community about our shared histories. Students, teachers, schools, religious groups, community organisations and villages are all invited to contribute information to expand and deepen the historical information presented here. To ensure the continuity of this project we are open to establishing new partnerships with donors and community groups. For more information, please email
