Abstract: The main aim of this study is to explore and document the Indigenous Fijian or iTaukei perceptions and expressions of play or vakatatalo also referred to as qito, as a context for early learning and development and, to some extent, offer some future possibilities towards curriculum reform in developing more relevant and play pedagogies in early childhood education in Fiji. The research methodology used to elicit these views and expressions was grounded through an indigenous lens upon which culturally appropriate aspects of a blend of ethnographical and autobiographical perspectives, namely autoethnography, was adopted.
