The Hugag'esea club will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this Rotuma Day and we would like to invite all those who will be in the area or have wanted to visit Canada, to join us in this joyous occasion.
Twenty years ago, our parents and elders got together to form a group with the sole purpose to teach us, their children, the Rotuman. a culture and the importance of family.
Because of their love and commitment, we have benefited immensely and have been given the gift of what it means to be Rotuman. We are eternally grateful to them.
If you would like to join us in celebrating Rotuma Day please drop us a line at: email@example.com
We will be taking it back to where it all began, Nanaimo, BC at the Nanaimo Curling Club on Saturday, May 18th 2013.
For more information please contact us at the above email address. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our learning centre, 'IPA edu-Innovative Services in Nasinu, Suva is currently assisting Radio Fiji One with their Rotuman Programme on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.
We would like to attract more Rotumans of the younger generation to the programme and have made a few changes to the broadcast. One of the changes includes the use of both Rotuman and English languages, the sharing of news bulletins from Rotumans around the world, the use of email and phone contacts as well as the Radio Fiji One website for members to log in. We encourage members of the public to send in their comments, news, activities, dedications and any topical issues they would like us to consider for the programme. It's a 90 mins programme per recording
