Fiji Native and Tribal Congress

The Fiji Native and Tribal Congress (FNTC) is a non-profit and non-government body established in June 2011 to preserve, protect and advance the rights of Fiji's native population, the Indigenous Fijians, in accordance with the standards set by the UN under the 2007 UN Declaration of Indigenous Rights, in a manner that balances those rights equitably with the rights of other individuals and groups in Fiji.

In the same way, FNTC is tasked to promote and protect Human Rights generally.

The Congress was established by the Paramount Chiefs of Fiji's Tribal Confederacies and concerned citizens. The Congress is administered by a Trust Board comprising: the Paramount Chief of the Tovata Confederacy, Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu, the Paramount Chief of the Burebasaga Confederacy, Ro Teimumu Kepa and three laypersons: Jese Sikivou, Dr Mere Samisoni and Secretary Niko Nawaikula. The Board has a Secretariat manned by a Chief executive Officer, Emosi Toga.
