House of Chiefs (Fiji)

House Of Chiefs (Fiji)

The term House of Chiefs is a collective term used to refer to the Fijian nobility, which consists of about seventy chiefs of various ranks. It is not a formal political body and should not be confused with the former Great Council of Chiefs, which was a political body with a prescribed constitutional role. The membership of the two bodies did, however, overlap to a great extent.

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or chiefs:

    Happy will that house be in which the relations are formed from character; after the highest, and not after the lowest order; the house in which character marries, and not confusion and a miscellany of unavowable motives.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Fashion understands itself; good-breeding and personal superiority of whatever country readily fraternize with those of every other. The chiefs of savage tribes have distinguished themselves in London and Paris, by the purity of their tournure.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
