The Fijian Conceptual Framework Vuvale Doka Sautu was developed by the Fijian Working Group: Rev Dr Ilaitia Tuwere, Amalaini Ligalevu, Tina McNicholas, Maureen Moala, Kiti Tuifagalele and Sai Lealea (writer).

The Fijian term “Sautu” denotes the existence and maintenance of a strong and vibrant Fijian vuvale (family). It represents the pinnacle and optimal state where the family is operating at its best and has secured a stable, harmonious and mutually sustaining status.

It is a situation where relationships are thriving because the key Fijian values and concepts of veivakarokoroko (respect), veidokai (respect or honour), veirogorogoci (listening to each other), veivakatavulici (accepting of authority), veinanumi (consideration), veikauwaitaki (care) and veilomani (loving one another) are observed and promoted. It is a situation akin to reaching the final stage in the building of a Fijian house when the Doka ni Vale is in place as the topmost and crowning glory of the house.
