Exports tree map[edit]

The Exports Tree Map, showing predominantly fishing exports, contradicts the text. Suggest this be fixed or clarified. Bellagio99 (talk) 14:35, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Cyclone Pam[edit]

Can anyone see any reason why there should not be a "Tropical storm" (or alternate name) section heading about Cyclone Pam with a hatnote linking to Cyclone Pam#Effects in Vanuatu? Most of the effects of the cyclone should likely remain on that page, with major details here. 220 of Borg 05:06, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Colonization[edit]

The original human inhabitants of many Pacific islands are really unknown. It is unknown if the Lapitas were polynesian or melanesian, or asians. PNG is the center of melanesia and fired pottery is unknown.27.33.243.74 (talk) 01:14, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

A new paper determines the oldest skulls to be Lapitas:

Frédérique Valentin et al. Early Lapita skeletons from Vanuatu show Polynesian craniofacial shape: Implications for Remote Oceanic settlement and Lapita origins, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2015). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1516186113

"The researchers focused on skulls dug from the bottom of a cemetery on Efate Island, which has been dated back to approximately 3,000 years ago, making it the oldest in the South Pacific. The skulls, the team reports, belong to a people known as the Lapita, who are believed to have been the earliest settlers of the islands. The team compared the skulls with those of people currently living on the island and also other parts of Polynesia and Melanesia and concluded that the ancient skulls were closest in structure to modern Asians and Polynesians.
