24 May 2011:

Writing my journal at night. I chose to stay at Tiendanite since it is the home tribe (tribu) of Jean-Marie Tjibaou, the influential leader of the FLNKS (Front de LibĂ©ration Nationale Kanak et Socialiste - Kanak and Socialist National Liberation Front), who promoted a moderate peaceful approach, and was ultimately assassinated by another Kanak in 1989.
