The i-taukei community will be known as the Kai Viti says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
Bainimarama made the comment after concerns were raised on why all citizens of Fiji are called Fijians.
He says calling citizens, Fijians is to unite us together as a nation and remove racism.
The Prime Minister says the i-Taukei must not be moved by this name as they are the Kai Viti, the landowners.
Bainimarama says those who are trying to take away the name Fijians for all are trying to bring back racism in the country.
