Fiji is a small island with about 820,000 people. Some of those people are of Indian descent due to being indentured servants. In the late 1800s, leaders in Britain required Indians to work in the fields to produce sugar cane on the island of Fiji. As a result of so many Indians who were indentured servants being brought to the islands, about one-third of the population are of Indian descent.

These indentured servants were in contract with Fiji to work for five years. However, the work on these plantations was very daunting and terrible conditions. In the early 1900s, many people were angry with the treatment of these people and they wanted this mistreatment to stop immediately. At the beginning of 1920, indentured servanthood was over.
