Title: Kava Ceremony

"During our program, we had the great opportunity to stay in Votua Village, which is one of many villages on the islands of Fiji. This video was during our introductory Kava ceremony, the village's way of saying 'thank you' for visiting and staying with us. The video features Lesi, my Fijian brother, who was part of my home stay family. To the right of him is Emoni, an ambassador for the village of Votua. Both of these gentlemen play for the Fijian rugby team. Right after we left, they were on their way to New Zealand to play them in a match."
