Specters of Violence in a Colonial Context

This chapter discusses the politics of seeking and providing refuge, as well as the strategies and agendas of Kanak, settlers, and missionaries. The importance of acquiring authority over as many people as possible was evident in the competition between the chiefs who received refugees or captives and in the denunciations and counter-denunciations that prolonged the war. The missions—caught up in an analogous logic of recuperation, protection, or evangelization—added to the rivalry by supporting or challenging claims. The remainder of the chapter considers the extent to which the balance of power in relations between Kanak, the colonial administration, the missions, and settlers had been reshaped by 1921.

Keywords:   Kanak, settlers, missionaries, refugees, counter-denunciation, captives
