The Fiji Islands were discovered by the explorer Abel Tasman in the seventeenth century, with its ancient Austronesian inhabitants.

In the nineteenth century, the Europeans colonized these islands to occupy them permanently. In 1874, the islands were under British control until their independence on 10 October 1970.
