About Us

- About this blog!

MELANESIA.netWORK is the blog I, Wewo Kotokay have developed, aiming at presenting various information on 

  1. The Melanesian Archipelago as a place: islands and villages,
  2. The individuals, families, clans and ethnic groups that inhabit the Melanesian Archipelago, that are commonly referred to as "Melanesian People".

I invite all Melanesian peoples, or all WaNTOKS wherever you are to help this project develop further into more scientific and story-based database of in-depth information on the place, peoples and culture.

Further information please contact me: info@wantok.us
