In France's erstwhile colony New Caledonia, the Kanaks have been fighting for their independence for over 40 years & they use nickel as a weapon to achieve their end. To finance their future the Kanaks open mines & build factories. But are Kanaks at risk of losing something far more precious by gambling raw material? Will they shift from political dependence to a financial one?
