I just wanted to share that the National Archives of Fiji has a wonderful Facebook page that is definitely worth viewing.

Here is the link. When you get some time, feel fee to visit the page and have a look at the extraordinary content that has been provided for its readers. Currently, there are photos of our (ICAS) latest visit to the archives. Oh, and don’t forget to “Like” the site!! Vinaka!

A little information about the archives:

The National Archives of Fiji was established in 1954 as the Central Archives of Fiji and the Western Pacific High Commission. The name of the department was changed to the National Archives of Fiji after Fiji attained its independence in 1970. The Archives collects and preserves Fiji’s documentary heritage and makes it available to the public through exhibitions and research services. The collection contains around a million documents dating from the early 1800’s to the present.

About islandculturearchivalsupport

Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed. The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
