    Abstract

    The iTaukei or the indigenous Fijian notions of child development have stood the test of time as the ‘currents of change’ sweep through the shores of the Fiji Islands. These ‘currents of change’ have infiltrated the intricate fabric of iTaukei society thus undermining culture and traditions of education of how iTaukei children are raised and developed. This paper presents snapshots literature review of the western and the ‘others’ notions of child development with a hope to privileging and empowering indigenous knowledge such as that of iTaukei within a larger body of knowledge.
