FOOD

Food is a part of Fiji’s culture. Taro is a food that is eaten routinely. Taro is a heavy, potato-like root with a reddish blue shade;Taro is involved with culture through Taro day, which is celebrated on the first full moon in May. Kokado is a very common dish that is built with finely cut up uncooked mahi-mahi fish, dressed with miti –a dressing made from thick coconut cream with onions, lemon/lime juice, salt and chilies. Fiji normally provides this dish in a big clam shell or half a coconut shell. A commonly used cooking technique is cooking over an open fire or underground. Fiji’s cooking methods have improved over time. Fiji isn’t really recognized for its food, and it’s recognized for its coastal regions and diversity, so Fiji is surrounded by water which makes most of their food is effected by that ,so most dishes involve many different sea foods. Food is important in culture because the are around this country affects what they eat, this country is made up of lots islands which means they would eat mostly eat seafood in their day to day foods (Helen).

LANGUAGE

Language is an important part of culture in Fiji. Their fundamental reason was to instruct Fijians to peruse and compose their own particular dialect. The usual day to day language that Fiji Indians speak is a weird language to Fiji.Fijian consonants sound quite disparate from other languages. Fiji has three formal languages;Fijians speak fijian to each other but to others they speak English. The children at schools are shown to speak in their primary language until they understand the basics of English. Speaking English to the Fijians may not be difficult because you may not get into a deep discussion with them, but it may be hard to comprehend what they are saying in English due to their accents. Language can be very important in this country because it is the big key to communication, and this is a country visited but others from other countries that speak other languages (Language in Fiji)

GOVERNMENT

Fiji involves government in their culture. Fiji is like nothing else in the world it is a group of islands made up of more than 300 islands in the South Pacific. The nation gained its independent power of a country in 1970. Fiji’s islands are separated into four directorial groups which are divided into another fourteen different directorial groups, and each division assigns one person to take role. Fiji’s judicial authorities are separated into executive and legislature. The law issues three courts the Supreme Court, the Fijian High Court, and Fiji's Court of Appeal. Individuals from a political gathering get situates in Parliament as indicated by the quantity of votes they secure. The Fiji First Party has 32 situates in the Parliament while the Social Democratic Liberal Party has 15 seats. Fiji's Parliament is driven by the Prime Minister, who is the leader of the biggest party in the present government. 50 individuals sit in Fiji's Parliament.The jobs of the Head of State in Fiji are carried out by the President. The Parliament of Fiji keeps the right to vote for a president. The Fijian President is the captain general of Fiji's military. The Constitution specifically says that Fiji's Prime Minister is to be chosen by the Parliament. The Prime Minister's primary job is to select ministers who are then chosen by the President. Government is an important part of Fiji’s culture because Fiji has lots of islands and a variety of people living on those islands which means they need a certain system t be able to control this area and have it maintained (Benjamin).
