Specters of Violence in a Colonial Context

This chapter presents the events surrounding the wars that unfolded in the four valleys—Koné, Pouembout, Tipindjé, and Hienghène—of Tiamou. From late April until early June, the Koné and Pouembout valleys saw the initial mobilization of “rebel” warriors, the deployment of the French army, and the first major actions. From June to October, the center of attention was the Tipindjé valley, including the settlements of Oué-Hava and Ouen-Kout, as well as its principal tributary, the Pamalé. Finally, from November 1917 to February 1918, the focus shifted to the Hienghène valley and its tributaries, notably the valley of Tiendanite. In each of these places three “rebel warriors”—Noël of Tiamou, Noël's brother Waï, and Poindet Apengou of Paola Netchaot—emerged.

Keywords:   Koné, Pouembout, Tipindjé, Hienghène, French army, rebel warrior, Poindet Apengou
