A Brief Prehistory about Oceania

The history of Oceania contains the history of New Zealand, Fiji, Australia, Papua New Guinea and other pacific island nations.

Polynesia Theories:

The Polynesian people are believed to linguistic, archaeological and human genetic heritage a division of the sea, migrating Austronesia residents and tracking Polynesian languages positions their prehistoric genesis in the Malaya archipelago and also in Taiwan. Between around 3000 and 1000 BC spokesperson of Austronesia languages started scattering from Taiwan into the southeast Asia, island as people who resident were thought to have reached through south china around 8000 years ago to the corner of western Micronesia and into Melanesia, although they are varied from the Han Chinese who now form the greater part of people in china and in Taiwan.


There are 3 theories considering the scatter of humans across the Pacific to Polynesia. These are represented by the Kayser and as follows:

  • Express train type: A current extension out of Taiwan through the Philippines and the eastern Indonesia and from northwest of New Guinea on to the Melanesian island by about 1400BC, arriving western Polynesian islands at about 900 BC. This theory is maintained by the popular recent human genetic information, linguistic information and archaeological information.
  • Entangled bank type: Highlights the far history of Austronesia narrates cultural and the inherent communications with Original Island Southeast Asians and Melanesians along the method to becoming the initial Polynesians.
  • Slow boat type: Related to the express train type, but with the lengthy hiatus in Melanesia with admixture both culturally and linguistically with the local population.

Micronesia Theories:

Micronesia started to be settled more millennia ago, although there are theories about the basis and the reach of 1st settlers. There is a huge complex with performing archaeological digs on the islands, because of their size, arrangement model and storm scratch. As an output, much witness is depending on the linguistic study. The oldest archaeological outlines of civilization have been detected on the island of Saipan, of about 1500 BCE or before.


The relative of the Micronesians was residing there above 4000 years ago. A distributed chieftain based approach eventually developed into centralized economic and religious Micronesian empire cored on yap and Pohnpei. The prehistory of Micronesian islands like yap is not known completely.

On pohnpei, pre grand history is splitted into 3 eras such as mwehin kawa or mwehin aramas, mwehin sau deleur and mwehin nahnmwarki. The pohnpeian prodigy renumbers that the sau deleur empires, the 1st to bring the government to pohnpei were of the foreign basis. The sau deleur authorized form of perfect rule is featured in pohnpeian legend as increasingly repressive over more generations. Micronesian residents settled in the marshal islands during the second millennium BC, with the inter-island routing made using traditional stick charts.

Melanesia Theories:

The 1st settlers of Australia, New Guinea and the large islands to the east reached between 50,000 and 30,000 years ago, when the Neanderthals still wandered the Europe. The original residents of the groups of islands denoted Melanesia were preferably the associates of the current day Papuan speaking people. Relocating from the Southeast Asia, they emerge to have engaged these islands as long east as the major islands in the Solomon Islands, containing makira and actually the smaller islands longer to the east.


Specifically along the north coast of the New Guinea and in island’s north and east of new guinea, the Austronesia residents who had relocated into the region somewhat more than 30,000 years ago, came into existence with the pre existing people of Papuan speaking individuals. There is a perfect diversity among various indigenous societies and communities in Australia with its own separate blend of cultures, languages and customs.
