New Caledonia is a unique archipelago in the Pacific. You can choose to come and immerse yourself in the core of Kanak culture. To do this, nothing’s better than staying with a tribe. Along the Eastern cost and on the islands, traditions are still very much alive.
Custom and traditionVoir plus
Before venturing into a tribe, excluding guest houses, it’s important to follow custom. This mark of respect takes the form of a small gift, offerings such as money, a sarong for the tribe’s chief. This gesture will open the doors to living in the tribe.
What the families welcoming will offer you is sharing their customs, their way of life and know-how during the time of your stay. In the tribe, time stands still. You make friends very quickly and human relationships are simple and generous. You’ll have the chance to sleep in a hut, prepare simple meals and taste Kanak dishes. On the East coast, the cradle of Kanak culture, traditions are the strongest.
Tribal island festivals
The Loyalty Islands let you discover tribal live in the most festive way. The Kanak calendar is marked by harvests, especially of yams, periods of fishing or holidays, always with some relation to nature. The Loyalty Islands have managed to preserve its traditions and will share clan customs during a weekend with vanilla, red snapper or other local products. This is a stay that will not leave you indifferent, with your heart full for having received such a warm welcome. These festivals are an opportunity to discover the region through hikes, fishing parties, braiding and other times of sharing.
