Cultural sustainability was the main purpose for the Rotuma Day celebration this year.
It was an opportunity to bring young people together and remind them the importance of conserving their culture, tradition and language.
Fiji Rotuma Association Chairperson Paserio Furivai said learning the Rotuman language as well as a culture is a challenge among the youths.
He hopes that the celebration this year will encourage Rotuman youths to be proud of their identity.

The theme for this year was “Rotuma, rotu-ma-on -to which means “My identity,my heritage is my spirituality and faith”.
