THE Banaban people of Rabi this week have been celebrating the 68th anniversary of their arrival on the island. The week-long celebration, which started on Monday, was opened by acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu. Rabi Island interim administrator Christopher Karia said the theme of celebrations reflected reforestation and the replanting of coconut trees on the island.

Mr Karia said at the same time the islanders were taught to make products from coconuts and earn an income from them. "The theme of the celebration is very important to us since it reflects on one of the important commodities on the island," he said. "It was also a time for Rabians to reconnect with their families and learn about their culture and traditions. "In an effort to revive our culture, we have organised competitions which will feature during the event."
