Cool clubs!!

These things must have made somewhat embarrassing stories "...blundgeoned to death with a large wooden phallus..."

Yes I should have made that a little more clear. In the early colonial period of Melanesian Islands "Kanak" was a very general term. In some ways rather like the "N" word in times past when referring to people of African origin, but today "Kanak" refers specifically to the original natives of New Caledonia.
