THE indigenous Fijian language, culture, and tradition are being endangered as never before, according to the University of Fiji's Centre for iTaukei Studies director Master Joji Uluinakauvadra.

While officially launching the university's Diploma in the Teaching of the Fijian Language program at the Saweni Campus on Monday, Mr Uluinakauvadra said iTaukei culture, language and tradition were being hit by winds of change as never before.

He said while the English and Hindi languages had developed solid foundations, including written records over a very long period of time, the iTaukei language was not as fortunate and still evolving.
