The adventures of the Bula Buddies begins in Viti Village. Viti Village in Fiji is one of many underwater communities that stretch across the South Pacific. Their clan is referred to as the “Vanua”.
The Vanua are very long-lived, some have special abilities that allow the communities to live safely in a sometimes dangerous and changing environment.
Once or twice a generation there’s a teachers council called “The Great Learning”. Dolphins and whales spread the word across the Pacific and the community leaders decide who will attend.
