Overview: Fiji is an island nation in Melanesia in the South Pacific. The majority of Fiji's 332 islands were formed through volcanic activity. Native Fijians trace their ancestry to Melanesian and Polynesian ancestors who first inhabited the islands some 3,500 years ago. While sharing a common ancestry, the geographic spread of the islands contributes to diversity in language and culture among the various people groups that comprise the Fiji people cluster. A majority of indigenous Fijians are Christians.
