THE representative of a village in Naitasiri says they do not want to share their "Fijian" name with anyone else.
Nabuka Koroi while making his submission in Naitasiri stressed that the name Fijian could be used only for the iTaukei community.
Mr Koroi, who spoke on behalf of Naqara Village in the province, said the iTaukei community had customs, traditions and culture that were closely linked to the name "Fijian".
Fijian name, he said, should be reserved for the iTaukei.
Mr Koroi told the Constitution Commission the Great Council of Chiefs should be restored as this august institution had a role and a special place in the vanua.
He said the GCC was established in 1940 in the presence of the late Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna for a reason — to protect and safeguard the interest and aspirations of the iTaukei.
"Rights such as land and indigenous rights," he said. "GCC should be restored. Chiefs play an important role in the lives of the iTaukei."
Other issues which emerged during the consultations were calls for Fiji to be declared a Christian State, the State to provide free education from Class One to secondary education and to include no extra fee/levy to be charged by schools, proper health care for all and access of free medical care by all those above the age of 65, social welfare allowances for the ageing populace and corporal punishment to be reintroduced in schools.
