The Movement for Federation and the Viti Kabani

(p.70) Chapter Three The Movement for Federation and the Viti Kabani
Disturbing History

Robert Nicole

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter surveys a series of historical developments that help explain the emergence of the Viti Kabani (Fiji Company) in the early 1910s. The Vita Kabani emerged in 1913; and when it peaked in 1915 and again in 1917, the Kabani had established itself as a rival government in all parts of the colony except Rotuma and stood as a powerful example of unarmed resistance. The chapter brings to light the specific political and socioeconomic context within which the Vita Kabani founder Apolosi Nawai and his contemporaries evolved, by examining the Movement for Federation with New Zealand (1900–1903) and two Tailevu risings against Bau between 1907 and 1912.

Keywords:   Vita Kabani, Apolosi Nawai, Movement for Federation, Tailevu risings, unarmed resistance
