Quest to reconnect

Repeka Nasiko
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

THE yavusa o Nasau from Nagado Village, Sabeto, paid a visit to the Tui Nadi, Ratu Sailosi Dawai, in Narewa Village on Monday to seek his blessings on their quest to visit an old village site near the Narewa area.

While presenting their i sevusevu to the Tui Nadi, the clan said the site was believed to have belonged to their ancestors.

Yavusa o Nasau spokesman Maciusela Susu said the visit to the Tui Nadi followed discussions with various stakeholders.

He said the clan would also approach the Tui Nayau and Saunaka Village for consent and support of their wish to visit the old site.

Mr Susu claimed their elders had moved to Nagado Village from the old village site during the 18th century.

He said the clan wanted to reconnect with the land on which their elders had once lived.

"It's our identity and part of our history," he added.

The clan has also approached the Fiji Museum and requested an archeological impact assessment to verify their claims.
