Blog Transition Click to view)

A Maori waka on the move
The blog is in the process of transition. Pn23.

Most postings are two or more years old and refer mainly to Fiji.

The new blog will be more balanced but with a leaning towards New Zealand. Fiji will continue to have an important place and more attention will be given to other  Pacific Island nations.

The focus, as always, will aim to provide an informed and critical view of news and events. News and views from other countries will also be used where they are considered relevant to Oceania issues.


  1. If you have any ideas on the direction the blog could go, especially with respect to ideas, issues and locations not well covered by the media and other blogs, please write them here. Vinaka.

  2. More about freedom of expression in Fiji would be good.
