Fijians are the major indigenous people of the Fiji Islands. They are indigenous to all parts of Fiji except the island of Rotuma. As of 2004, they constitute slightly more than half of the Fijian population. The great majority are Christian; around half are Methodist, with Roman Catholics, the Assemblies of God, and the Seventh Day Adventist Church well-represented also. They are predominantly of Melanesian extraction, with some Polynesian admixture; the Fijian language belongs to the Melanesian branch of the Austronesian family.
