Tribes of the land and tribes of the sea

There are two kinds of tribes on Maré: tribes of the land and tribes of the sea. The tribes of the sea are fishermen, while the tribes of the land are agricultors. Their occupation is clearly delineated: they do not perform both activities, so that they exchange their products. This boat belongs to a tribe of the sea.

Monument dedicated to landing of Evangile

The first protestant missionary landed in 1841 on the territory of this tribe of the sea and brought peace among tribes. Here, his grand-grand nephew, the son of the current chief of tribe, is pictured at the monument with my guide Cathy.

His father was playing modern games in Cathy's tribe. This tribe invited me at lunch and then I bought a very good bread from this woman, who was a member of Cathy's clan, who prepared it in at underground oven, seen on the left. Price? $4 for a big piece of bread.
