There was a culture around Fiji islands. All their gods were foxes.
Their ideology was like "you need to work hard and feed foxes. If these foxes see that you are not working so hard, they send you to underworld (i.e. hell), and if they like you, you will live in overworld"
There was a description of this civilization on prezi.com, but was deleted a week ago.
Also artifacts and statues shown this.
The king of this civilization was a Golden Fox.
I think there was not just foxes, but kind of a intellegence.
This foxes 'came' to Fiji area and made Fijian aborigines work for them.
This is very intersting for me.

Who also heared about it?
What do you think about it?

Pteropodidae, also known as Fijian flying foxes, are native to Fiji, Samoa, and America Samoa. Could these flying foxes, or bats, be what you are speaking of? These flying foxes are natively limited to the above islands, and may have carried significant meaning to the Fijian culture. Especially since they flew above and all around the islands.

I have not seen the artifacts/statues you speak of, but it would make sense the natives would have made items depicting them. I think this may fall under myth and lore more than intelligent fox beings, but what do I really know, right?

There was no distinct "fox culture" in Fiji. Prior to colonization by Europeans, they practiced animism and had numerous Gods representing a multitude of animals both real and mythical. The existence of statues or sculptures of fox doesn't mean that they were even based on actual fox any more than Dakuwaqa is a real sea monster. Furthermore,
Idolatry was extremely rare in preconial Fiji prior to the introduction of Christianity which makes me
Leery of the actual existence of these alleged "fox god" Sculptures in the first place as you have provided
Nothing resembling an actual citation to support the notion.

I cant find any valid links about it. Thats why I posted here.

Boscov, I mean "plain" foxes, not Pteropodidae.

P.S. OK, intellegent fox beings is more interesting for me than Fijian culture...

It's fake. Someone's playing folks for fools.

I don't know if you noticed, but they showed several species of fox, none of which lived anywhere near Fiji. Also, rabbits were not present in Fiji until the Europeans brought them. Cocoa is native to South America (not Fiji.) Fijians were animists, as Peter Vlar said (and this is well known.)
