The Kanak People's Congress (CPCK) is fighting for the recognition of the rights of the islandâ€™s indigenous people and especially for the sovereignty of their traditional lands.
Nothing Made in Heaven (Rien ne se fait dans le ciel) follows the charismatic CPCK coordinator Roger Cho from his tribe, where he shares the life of his clan, to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. The CPCK has developed a project to build maps of ancestral and clan lands to support land claims lodged with institutions in New Caledonia, France and the United Nations.
The CPCK has based itself on the model of the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2007. The declaration is part of international rights that concerns all indigenous peoples on the planet.
