Album: Kava

“When you’re sitting in a circle sharing kava with the locals it is a great way to get to know Fijians.”

Kendra Hein, 2014 Fellow

Kava is a very mild narcotic that is consumed during Fijian ceremonies. To some Westerners, it tastes like dirt. But even with this taste when drinking kava you feel as if you’re part of the culture. When you’re sitting in a circle sharing kava with the locals it is a great way to get to know Fijians.
