Inside a Fijian chief's house - from Jane's excellent Fiji post cards

from Wendy

Browsing through Jane's excellent Fiji post cards I found two of interest that were taken inside a chief's house. One is possibly from Bau Island, and the other looks like it is 120 years old, taken inside a huge bure, either a chief's house or the traditional mens' communal house. Notice the bou, the great kingpost that I referred to in an earlier posting about building a chiefs house in Naduri village.
