I conduct research in the Lautoka region of Fiji. Fiji is an ideal place to study religion and culture. Fiji has two main ethnic groups, indigenous Fijians and Indo-Fijians, and a variety of religious beliefs. The indigenous Fijians are Christian. The Indo-Fijians are mostly Hindu and Muslims, with a small minority of Sikhs and Christian converts. I work primarily with the Indo-Fijian population. The Indo-Fijians are an Indian diaspora community. Like many of the Indian diaspora communities around the world, Indo-Fijians were brought to their new home by the British as indentured workers. Starting in 1879 and ending in 1920, indenture contracts consisted of 5 years of mandatory service. They currently make up approximately 40% of the Fijian population.
