Motuan

Motuan

The Motuans are native inhabitants of Papua New Guinea, living along the southern coastal area of the country. Their indigenous language is known as Motu, and they are believed to be the descendants of Polynesian immigrants who intermarried with the native Melanesians of the area. They are the original inhabitants and owners of the land on which Port Morseby - the national capital city of Papua New Guinea - stands.
