    Abstract

    This paper is a detailed review of the contents of a Ph.D. which has been defended publicly at the University of New Caledonia in 2015 and attracted a very large audience, as it presented the various customary gifts of traditional "money" that are required in all life-cycle rituals and showed how Kanak groups or "chiefdoms" are simultaneously living within all the contemporary modern political-economical requirements and following the "traditional" social obligations, which all together constitute these group, in each case, as a "society" in the Durheimian-Maussian sense.
