Major problems[edit]

This article appears to have a series of major problems:

  • Only one of the references is not a dead link, and that is a pretty unreliable-looking crafts site.
  • The article refers to "Papuan" people and mythology as if there were a coherent cultural "Papuan" group ("one of four major groups"); to my knowledge this is incorrect - the reality is far more diverse.
  • The single reference, and various elements of the article which appears to have been lifted from it, seem to refer to aspects of culture in the Papuan Gulf region - a completely different topic.

There are plenty of good sources around for Papua New Guinean mythology; but I'm not at all sure this article should even exist under its present title. Wantok (toktok) 03:05, 11 August 2007 (UTC)
