The article discusses Fijian Hindi, a group little known in Poland. It is the second largest ethnic group of Fiji, which constitutes 43.7% of the country's population. The Indian Diaspora appeared in Fiji as late as 130 years ago as a result of colonization by the British. The text presents the historical aspects of the functioning of the British indenture work and discusses problems related to the internal diversity of the group, its many cultures and religious differences as well as the linguistic situation. The author points out to the disappearance of the caste system in the Indian community and to the role that it played in the process of the integral integration of the Indo-Fijian group.
