Fiji Map
The Fijjian islands were first settled by seafaring Polynesians that discovered the remote archipelago about 3,500 years ago, roughly 1,000 years before the Melanesians also arrived by sea. Inter-breeding of the two distinct ethnic groups resulted in what is termed the Fijjian people today. Immediately the British invaders brought with them Indian labourers from their largest colony on the sub-continent thousands of miles to the northwest. In total 61,000 came over during the first 37 years of British rule and were put to work on new industries like the Nausori sugar mill built in 1881.
