      Fijian tradition and ceremony is a living way of life that has remained intact for millennia, evolving as the Fijian nation has modernised over time, with various external influences from Pacific neighbours, and European and Asian society. The term Fijian in this article refers to "indigenous Fijians" or "I Taukei" as the term Fijian generally includes all citizens of Fiji. In A Song of Ice and Fire, living free even against impossible odds or in terrible danger of death is a central tenet of wildling culture; notably, they call themselves "the Free Folk." When Jon Snow argues that Mance Rayder's attack on the Wall is futile and the attackers must certainly die, wildling Ygritte responds that all men must die.
