Tales From The South Pacific – Vanuatu 2011

Of Tanna and Efate, and of discrimination.

It was beautiful from the air, an idyllic nation where a smile goes a long way for many. But for some, it was far from beautiful as they came to Efate for work and a new beginning.

The Tannese people from Tanna Island have long held on to the traditional ‘kustoms’ of the old ways, and resisted the American and Western influences since World War II. Living in the shadows of the volcano that is Mount Yasur – their traditional tribal values continue to hold a unique place within Vanuatu, and the inevitable clash with the modern society on Efate came as no surprise to many.
