Savusavu with the Ratu

 

savusavu

One of the first things we do when we go to Fiji is to visit the local chief (Ratu) and present the traditional gift (Savusavu). This is a Fijian custom, we enjoy the meeting with the Ratu. Traditional Savusavu is the gift of Kava root (In front of the spoksman on the left) . It is presented to the Ratu's spokesman.
The spokesman receives on behalf of the Ratu and gives prayer and thanks.
The Ratu is seen here in the red shirt. his name is
Ratu Kala Tuicakau (not sure of the correct spelling).
Also in the photo is Char Delillio, Carol Fus and Walter Fus.
While in Fiji we visited eight villages and two different islands.
