520    Swooping down on the world like a scythe, westernization 
       has devastated local cultures and made uniformity 
       commonplace. The Pacific islands sustained the shock with 
       a force perhaps unequaled anywhere else in the world. 
       Their limited size and small population, coupled with the 
       violent epidemics that took thousands of lives, lowered 
       Islanders' ability to resist. To keep the external world 
       at bay, they had to create a world of their own. 
520 8  This personal observation of Tanna, an island in the 
       southern part of the Vanuatu archipelago, presents an 
       extraordinary case study of cultural resistance. Based on 
       interviews, myths and stories collected in the field, and 
       archival research, The Tree and the Canoe analyzes the 
       resilience of the people of Tanna, who, when faced with an
       intense form of cultural contact that threatened to engulf
       them, liberated themselves by re-creating, and sometimes 
       reinventing, their own kastom. Following a lengthy history
       of Tanna from European contact, the author discusses in 
       detail original creation myths and how Tanna people 
       revived them in response to changes brought by 
       missionaries and foreign governments. The final chapters 
       of the book deal with the violent opposition of part of 
       the island population to the newly established National 
       Unity government. 
520 8  Ultimately Tanna's story may well be a living symbol of 
       resistance for people throughout Oceania. Are they truly 
       convinced that the roads constructed by the west are the 
       right ones? Do they not persist in dreaming about their 
       own paths? The study of world cultures can still surprise 
       us, for the tide may be changing.
