The New Caledonia archipelago, with a people first arrived about three thousand two hundred years ago, belongs now to the French overseas territories. Throughout the pages, we shall discover the different settlement cycles that have succeeded, on la Grande Terre (the Main Land) and on the Loyalty Islands, to arrive at the present time.

This approach is resolutely chronological and built around the historic core that is the subject of a reasoned consensus. As an historian for more than thirty years, we incorporated in this book the most recent data, while giving priority to a holistic writing.

Before yesterday, the Austronesians settled there in several waves. This term includes several origins, all coming from the Melanesian arc. Some are Lapita potters, others carve petroglyphs, and others bring new yams. Around the year one thousand AD, they become the Kanak. Following the mutual discovery of 1774 through James Cook, adventurers and missionaries get in touch with Melanesians who, then, leave the age of polished stone and acquire, in a few decade, a new perception of the world.

Yesterday, from 1853 to 1945, New Caledonia became a settler colony. This period allows the often controversial Kanak civilization, too long isolated and forgotten, to enter fully into the modern world. This does not happen without excesses, western expansionism feeding himself with the development of tropical raw material.

Today, New Caledonia is no longer a colony. New Caledonia has been an Overseas Territory from 1946 to 1998, and crossed the period of decolonization through multiple statutory developments. Kanak, as first arrivals, are claiming a greater share in the city. After «years of Ashes” consecutive to political events, peace is restored in 1988 by the Matignon-Oudinot Agreements. In 1998, with the Noumea Agreement, New Caledonia becomes a single entity recognized by the French Constitution

Tomorrow, New Caledonia will have the possibility to choose its future by a referendum on self-determination which will take place in october 2018. New Caledonians will have the possibility to choose between the current status at the end of the four terms of the Noumea agreement or a new contract bringing New Caledonia close to autonomy or even independence that should have to be built then.

“The past was the time of colonization.

This is the time of sharing, through rebalancing.

The future must be the time of identity in a common destiny “.

Preamble of the Nouméa Agreement, 1998.
