In Fiji at the time I lived there (1950s-70s) 'Fijian' was used to refer
to the indigenous peoples who were Fijian by right of descent. People of
European descent who were born in Fiji tended to refer to themselves as
'Kai Viti' which means Fijian anyway but I suppose showed we were not
from the indigenous nation. I don't know how the Fiji Indians and
Chinese referred to themselves. And I don't know if the nomenclature has
changed over the last 30 years.
