NALESUTALE VILLAGE – at the foot of the Sleeping Giant mountains in Nadi, just 20 minutes drive from Nadi Airport. Nalesutale was the first village settlement in this region. It is the home of the first cannibal ancestors of this tribe and the first to convert to Christianity. The ancestors’ homes were located all along the mountain terrain and after they converted to Christianity, they resettled in one location, at the foot of this mountain. The village name of Nalesutale means “welcome back”.

 

Today, only approximately 100 villagers remain at Nalesutale after most of the people relocated to higher ground after severe flooding of the area in 1972. They continue to live the lifestyle of a farming community to make a living, visiting Nadi markets to sell vegetable & fruit products on a daily basis.
