“PEPJEI Day is celebrated by all members of our district and is a way to promote and revive our Rotuman culture.”
These were the words of Pepjei Suva community president Francis Jone during an interview with Fiji Times Online earlier today.
Rotumans from the Pepjei district turned up in numbers and bright colours at the Marist Brothers High School Lambert Hall in Flagstaff to mark their special day.
Mr Jone said it was important for them to hold this event as it would ensure their younger generations learn not only the language but also their rich Rotuman culture.
“Most of our children grew up here in Fiji and abroad so this is a way to ensure that they learn about the Rotuman language and culture,” he said.
