Anticipate a Kava Ceremony and Viillage visit. Welcome to Fiji with a kava ceremony. From less formal kava ceremonies at some resorts for guests, etiquette demands bringing a gifted kava to the village as respect for the community. Travelling with a tour, this is prearranged by presentation of kava to the chief and mataqali (village elders)!
. SAY "Bula" then clap your hands once before accepting your drink. . After drinking the bowl (bilo) of Kava (one gulp only-no sipping allowed) hand the bowl back to the person who presented it to you and clap with cupped hand three times again. (clapping sound should be hollow, not sharp)
. Terms of Endearment: "low tide" - a small bowl of Kava; "high tide" - filled bowl of Kava.
. It is acceptable to decline Kava -put your hand up and shake your head when it is presented to you. It is no insult to your host/no explanation needed.
