La cultura de Fiyi es una mezcla de elementos locales fiyianos, con aportes indios, europeos, chinos, y de otras nacionalidades. La cultura autóctona es una parte activa de la vida cotidiana de la gran mayoría de la población. Sin embargo, la misma ha evolucionado con la introducción de elementos culturales indios, chinos y europeos, y de diversas culturas de sus vecinos en el Pacífico; en particular de Tonga y del pueblo Rotuman.

Bailes y tradiciones en Fiyi[editar]

Sus bailes están dedicados principalmente a la muerte, a los nacimientos y a la guerra, y utilizan faldas coloridas y plantas adornando los tobillos y las cabeza. Las danzas nativas, tradicionales todavía se enseñan en las comunidades étnicas.
