HISTORY was created this afternoon as descendants of Girmitiyas who were traditionally adopted by the Tui Noco Ratu Isoa Damudamu as the children of Noco, escorted the body of their chief home before he is laid to rest tomorrow.
Group spokesperson Sashi Kiran said Ratu Isoa was a visionary leader that made them feel at home.
Ratu Isoa will be buried at the sautabu following a church service at 10am at the Nabudrau Methodist Church.
