The association between kava consumption and spirit possession is described not only for old Fiji (Deihl 1932, Hocart 1952:12, Kaplan 1995:106-107), but also for elsewhere in Oceania, such as in a famous Vanuatuan
'cargo cult' (Lindstrom 1990:88; see also Brunton 1989).
Here, the author offers a case study of a fisheries development program of moderate, though not complete, success, and she describes how various Vanuatuans
view it as well.
There is also an official Vanuatuan
language: Bislama, which is a rough and ready English with a dash of French, all wrapped around a simple Polynesian grammar.
