Originally called Viti, Fiji’s original inhabitants arrived around 1220 BC, but only stayed a short time. Their descendents relied on fishing, therefore inhabiting the coastline. As the population expanded, intertribal feuding led to cannibalism as part of war. By the time the Europeans arrived, Fiji was going through social upheaval. By 1805, Europeans were trading items such as tobacco, cloth, tools and muskets for the highly valued sandalwood. In the 1830s, missionaries arrived to preach against cannibalism and to convert the locals toward Christianity. Over the years, many Fijians adopted it in addition to their own spirituality.
