Veitau Waqa – The Boat Lives

Maritime skills have long been a major part of Fijian culture, particularly Fijian expertise in seafaring vessels. The waqa ni viti is a traditional sailing boat with designs and sizes that vary from the twin hulled drua, to the outrigger single-hulled camakau, to the smaller takia.  Use of these traditional Fijian canoes, however, has slowly faded from the locals’ lifestyles.
