Since the famous handshake between Jean-Marie Tjibaou and Jacques Lafleur, a quarter of a century ago, we have witnessed a unique decolonization process in French history. The Matignon Accord,in June 1988, followed 10 years later by the Noumea Accord between the Kanak and Caldoche leaders opened a new era in New Caledonia. These two accords permitted a political and economic rebalancing between the populations that lived on the territory. Furthermore, the accords facilitated the emergence of a Kanak identity, dismissed for nearly two centuries. Today, the New Caledonian people are looking to establish a common history and build a political entity in order to allow the younger generations to live in the nation in peace.
