Kanak Traditional Dance
January, 19th 2005

The day we arrived at Īle des Pins, there was an Australian cruise boat anchored in the bay just facing our hotel. This allowed us to watch a small kanak traditional dancing show that was organized for the tourists coming from the boat.

All pictures are available either in tar or zip formats. Also available is a tar archive of the original pictures, before being reworked (these are actually the same). Note that the tarballs contain all the pictures I took, not just the ones I present on this page.

Getting Ready

This picture was actually taken by a young kanak kid that was part of the dancers (see below, "A Young Performer"). I sympathised with him and he was intrigued by my equipment, so I guided him into taking a picture. I wish I could show him that he did great!
