Despite having great cultural diversity, with over 100 languages spoken, Vanuatu’s people have succeeded in maintaining a peaceful, democratic society for many years.
Throughout Vanuatu, the traditional tribal way of life continues to be observed in the country’s villages. There is a strong focus on age-old rituals or customs known as “kastom”. Inter-tribal meetings are held with elders acting as spokespeople where important decisions are made and problems resolved in a traditional ceremonial way.
If you are interested to learn more about traditional Vanuatu society, the feature film Tanna, which was released earlier this year, offers a terrific insight. The film is set on Vanuatu’s Tanna Island and is based around the true story of a young girl who flees an arranged marriage to join her lover, and the impact this has for the communities involved.
While there are many reasons to visit Vanuatu, the traditional wisdom of the ni-Vanuatu people and their strong sense of well-being, which is not linked to material wealth, can be a great source of inspiration and a reminder of what is really important in our lives.
