Published: 19.6.2010
Language French is the official language of New Caledonia Island. Anyway, local Melanese languages (33) are widely used, and also English or Japan languages are diffused.

Religion

The Christians are represented in great common measure: Roman Catholics (60%), Protestants (30%) and Moslems-Sunnits (4%). The aboriginates confess, together with Christianity, traditional local religions at the same time.

Custums and traditions of local inhabitants

Traditional Canacs´ way of life supposes complicated system of rite relations. Without regard to considerable influence of European life-style, the Canacs support in all imaginable way and cultivate their traditions, binding them for keeping of complicated religious rite systems of complicated social hierarchy, cult of change and presenting with gifts, ancestors´ worship, including dominance of relatives´and tribes´ bunches, which form a base of way of life of local people.

Canacs´ communions inhabitate small areas in north, east and in south of main island, including numerous islands around. Local people do their best to pay attention to traditional handicrafts - fishing, collecting dry and ground kernels of cocoa nuts, and herbs. Except legendary friendship and hospitality, the aborigines maintained their communions, character, culture and history. Many of them are walking semi-stripped or they bear their traditional costumes, only partially bidden the body.

         

Except aborigine tribes and Europeans, big number of persons from Indonesia, Vietnam, China and from the other islands from south part of Pacific Ocean are living in the islands. Many people came there, in order to work in nickel mines, and so, they brought there their traditions and culture.
