Eels and tradition

User licence

Due to climate change and drought, the depletion of certain species in rivers is not only having effects on the food chain. The eel in particular plays an emblematic role in the Kanak ‘tradition’. How to transmit the rites without eels? And how to live in this new environment? So many questions asked by Blaise, a member of the Tribu Poté near Bourail in New Caledonia. ePOP pays tribute to “Papy Blaise” who died in July 2020.
