Meke in Fiji

Spread the love

The indigenous Fijian culture is delightfully unique and welcoming. Join the locals in a popular performance called a meke, a traditional dance in Fiji that preserves the legends and tales passed down over the years. The performances capture aspects of traditional Fijian life, from elegant fan performances to rousing war dances. Typically, men wear the clothes of a warrior while women wear dresses with traditional ornate patterns. When performed in villages, meke dancers are given gifts of appreciation from the audience once the performance has concluded.
