In the past few decades, the iTaukei unknowingly and unwillingly have lost part of their identity — their traditional games.

Deputy CEO of the iTaukei Affairs Board, Josefa Toganivalu says it is rather unfortunate that most of these games are no longer played because of the impact of westernization and modernization.

Toganivalu says a few games that will be showcased on Saturday are the Fijian Javelin(Veitiqa), Fijian Tag (Qito Buka), Tug of War(Veidre dali), Veicibi, Veiceu etc.

He urges everyone to visit the Traditional Game site on Saturday and participate as well at the Ratu Sukuna Memorial School grounds as part of the Ratu Sukuna Week celebrations.
