The Custodians of the Gift. Fairy Beliefs, Holy Doubts and Heritage Paradoxes on a Fijian Island

Author: Guido Carlo Pigliasco

Description: Emerging from more than two decades of research in the field and in the archives, the essays collected here explore the multifaceted topic of the Fijian fire walking ceremony, the vilavilairevo. The collection examines the intersection of the intertwined topics of cultural property, reproduction of tradition, and change with issues of (post)colonial representation, authenticity, and ethnic identity.
