Friends of the Fiji Museum (Tokani) last week accompanied its members to a Museum Heritage fieldtrip at the Fiji Heritage Momi Battery Gun site located between Sigatoka and Nadi. The "Tokani Heritage Tour" is a new program from the Tokani team involving 1-2 field trips each year to visit sites of historic and cultural significance here in Fiji. The first tour focused on two fantastic heritage sites in Sigatoka. The first was the newly revitalised Momi Bay Gunnery Site. This World War II Historic Gun Site was built by the 30th Battalion of the New Zealand Expeditionary Forces to protect Fiji from Japanese invasion. The site is well managed by the National Trust of Fiji. The guns are intact and a wonderful new information center was established this year to provide the history of the site to visitors. The second is the close-by village of Lomawai, known for their exceptional sea-salt making processes. Here, the Tokani group met with the community and witness the traditional salt making process first hand.

The Fiji Museum recently hosted two officials from the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific (ICHCAP) based in South Korea under the auspices of UNESCO.
The Fiji Museum had successfully obtained a grant from ICHCAP, to facilitate the digitization of its analogue materials in archive – mostly audio and video recordings. A mission team was therefore sent to meet with selected cultural institutions in Fiji to discuss upcoming projects of ICHCAP which they wish to collaborate/partner with in future directly. The visit was a follow up also on the progress of the Digitization Project carried out by the Fiji Museum
