Peoples of the Pacific
And Their Origins
by Adrian Osterley
There are three main cultural groupings that populate the vast Pacific Ocean: Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian.
They represent epic migrations from parts of Asia over many thousands of years. This is their story, of the countries they belong to, and the way they evolved from the original settlers.
This book explains how those cultures were influenced by centuries of European colonialism, and how international boundaries were created without considering cultural and tribal patterns.
