Hi, I’m Rod Ewins. I’m a material culture researcher, mainly focused on Fijian material culture, and also society, politics, history, etc. My interest comes from the fact that I’m fourth generation Fiji-European, grew up in Fiji, went there up until I left to go to Sydney to university.
I’ve been actively researching Fijian ethnography for the last 30 years.
