Assessment Wikipedia:WikiProject Polynesia/Assessment

This WikiProject was formed to foster better articles on the countries of Polynesia with a spirit of cooperation.


The goals of this project are to:


The scope of this project is all articles which fall in the Category:Polynesia. We acknowledge up front that there may be other WikiProjects, both now and in the future, which deal directly with individual nations or areas within the above. We are grateful for their efforts, and will concentrate our own on those areas which are not covered by a currently existing project.

  • User:Leonaitasi. Aloha. I am an amateur researcher whose journey began with Polynesian genealogy. Curiously, that has led to a deepening interest in archaeology, astronomy, dead languages, comparative linguistics, and comparative mythology and theology.
  • User:Thdegy
  • User:KHarber
  • User:Badbilltucker
  • User:Zora. Did graduate research in Tonga and Hawaiian archives. Speak Tongan and some Hawaiian. Unfortunately, I'm grotesquely over-committed to several other projects (Indian cinema, Islam, clothing).
  • Chris 05:08, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Avenue 12:11, 14 March 2007 (UTC). Not sure how much I can help, as I have little expertise or (currently) spare time, but I am interested.

  • Mattbray - glad to help..... i understand a fair bit about music and dance
  • User:Danbrown99 - i'm happy to help with the expansion of articles on Easter Island, and help with the upkeep on other articles.
  • Targeman: I have a particular interest in Palau, I've just asked a local radio station for permission to use their pictures (sorely lacking on Commons). Waiting for their answer. Besides that, I'll add IPA tags where necessary, and translate, at least as stubs, English articles into other languages. I'll also try to create a stub for every populated island in Oceania. This'll take some time...
