Specters of Violence in a Colonial Context

This chapter expounds on the discussion in Chapter 3, stating that each of the wars' three theaters—Koné and Pouembout, Tipindjé, and Hienghène—reveals the struggle to identify rebel enemies and loyal allies. Examples from the Koné area indicate the importance of settler–Kanak relations. The Tipindjé theater reveals the influence of the Protestant and Catholic missions, and the Hienghène theater illustrates the war of words that was conducted in the form of accusations, counteraccusations, rumors, and speculation about Kanak intentions. Several themes are common to all three theaters: the importance of earlier patterns of enmity and alliance to both Kanak and European identifications, the colonial administration's dependence on certain allies or informants, and the way representations of Kanak changed as power relations were restored to the advantage of settlers and the administration.

Keywords:   Koné, Pouembout, Tipindjé, Hienghène, European identifications, Kanak
