Speedy deletion nomination[edit]

This article was nominated for speedy deletion. I have developed a couple of sentences and asked for expansion. I will also find an appropriate stub for it. Capitalistroadster 03:24, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Expansion[edit]

It seems to me that the most logical expansion would be to outline common beliefs and notable features of Melanesian mythology in areas such as New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. Capitalistroadster 03:42, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Origin[edit]

Good work so far Capitalistroadster! I think I started this page in error when I was making the Category for Melanesian mythology. It is a needed article tho, and I am also hoping to improve the kindred article on Polynesian mythology (more my area) which needs better content. Please also see the article on Encyclopedia Mythica to avoid a trap for the unwary that we are trying to get rid of from the Polynesian mythology pages: many of the Melanesian stubs will have been started from that source and it is unreliable to say the least.

Merge proposal[edit]

Kastom is the more commonly used word to describe the range of myths and associated praxis. Merge? Paki.tv 08:23, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
