Preparing kava in Tanna is an onerous task for the youth, who must thoroughly masticate the hard roots of the kava plant so that it can be mixed with water and drunk. The village council held that the boy had disobeyed his father and must pay him a fine and that every afternoon he must return to his house to prepare his father’s kava. The other significant issues facing youth are unemployment—particularly in urban areas—lack of educational opportunities, involvement in petty crime and alcohol and substance abuse.
