Category:Indigenous peoples of Oceania
|Wikimedia Commons has media related to Indigenous peoples of Oceania.|
This regional sub-category is intended for articles on particular indigenous peoples of this region, and related topics.
See the discussion on the parent category talk page at Category talk:indigenous peoples for suggested criteria to be used in determining whether or not any particular group should be placed in this sub-category.
The term indigenous peoples used here has a particular, modern analytical sense. As such, not every ethnic grouping of this region will warrant inclusion here. Reference sources should be cited, particularly if the identification as indigenous may be controversial or contested.
- the islands of Polynesia, including New Zealand and Hawaii;
- the islands of Micronesia;
- the islands of Melanesia, including New Guinea;
- the continent and surrounding islands of Australia.
Note that some particular group may be eligible for inclusion in more than one regional sub-category, either because the regional boundaries overlap, or the group is distributed across more than one region. A given group should be placed in its appropriate regional sub-category(ies), and optionally perhaps also its main regional category, rather than the overall parent Category:Indigenous peoples.
