Fiji Firewalkers

Narrated by Grammy award-winner Paul Horn, Fiji Firewalkers explores Fiji's people, land and culture, with a special emphasis on the legendary firewalkers of Beqa Island. The program captures the voices of the Fijian people and the sights and sounds of their Pacific homeland. Rich in colorful, vibrant music and cultural tradition, Fiji Firewalkers chronicles the origin of a Polynesian people whose civilization dates back to 700 B.C. Ancient pottery-making techniques are still used today, as well as a village-wide fishing drive and kava and firewalking ceremonies.
