Centre Culturel Yeiwene Yeiwene

Museum in Maré

Maréan Yeiwene Yeiwene was deputy to independence leader Jean-Marie Tjibaou and assassinated alongside him on Ouvéa in 1989. A statue of Yeiwene stands before the cultural centre, where there is a small exhibition of Kanak artefacts. Out the back are the stone ruins known as Hnaenedr wall, a mysterious rock wall that supposedly dates back to AD 250.
