Fiji Museum added an event.

This month we would like to invite you to a special talanoa on the history of the Tabua and making of the Kamunaga: The Story of the Tabua Exhibition as well as a private friends viewing of the exhibition itself.

The Talanoa will start with a short talk from Professor Sitiveni Hooper, Dr Apolonia Tamata, Mereaia Luvunakoro, Jotame Naqeletia and Mika Sela examining the history of tabua since the 18th century, discussing the the many uses to which whale ivory was put in the 19th century, its association with chiefs and the power of the sea, and the enduring importance of tabua in Fiji today. Following this presentation, the curatorial team for ‘Kamunaga: Story of Tabua” will discuss the making of the exhibition, what they learned through their own research, and then there will be time for questions from the Friends of the Fiji Museum.
Refreshments will be available and friends will be able to tour the exhibition following the talk.

*Please note this is not a public event but invite only for Friends of the Fiji Museum. You will be able to re-join on the night if your membership has lapsed. Please do feel free to send on to others who might with to join Friends of the Fiji Museum.
