Fijian Language Week

Fijian Language Week

Bula Vinaka, 

The 2020 Fijian Language theme is ‘Noqu Vosa, Noqu iSema Bula’ in English, “My language, my living link”.

This theme reflects the strength and connection a people’s language and cultural identity provide as they make their life’s journey, particularly during challenging times. Our languages are our identity and are key to our wellbeing and success. COVID-19 has truly challenged all of the peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand and the ability to communicate to Pacific peoples in their own languages has been critical in our fight to stop the spread of the virus.
