But too many Fijian leaders had yet to embrace this notion, committed instead to racist prescriptions and policies that denied any voice to the country's other communities and ethnic groups. As it greeted the new year, what Fiji desperately needed was a chance to redeem its future, a future that continued to be held hostage--like the People's Coalition Government had been--by the greed and folly of an influential few. tion of the Société le Nickel (sln), and arguments over the role of indigenous Kanak custom in forming a common nationhood among diverse, often polarized, ethnic groups. It was a year filled with discord, but in October the country tried to put on a hopeful face by hosting the eighth Festival of Pacific Arts, a regional honor that its political strife had canceled fifteen years earlier. Having experienced tragic intercommunal bloodshed in the 1980s, New Caledonian leaders voiced no support for the actions of extremists in neighboring Fiji in May 2000.
