24 May 2011:

Dominique (the English teacher from Guadaloupe / French Guyana) offered to drive me to Tiendanite, where I chose to stay. On the way is a memorial on the site of the 1984 Hienghèn Massacre, where 10 people from the Tiendanite tribe were killed when returning from a meeting as a part of the negotiations between separatist parties and the French government. They had been advocating a peaceful solution through negotiations, which their killers disagreed with.
