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.
