Settlers of Oceania

I’ve been intrigued by how demographic change plays into colonialism, as well as the independence and sovereignty debate (& referendum) in places like New Caledonia and other Pacific lands. So I made a map, for a general view of Oceania, focusing on “indigenous peoples” vs. “immigrants” vs. “settler-colonists”.

I admit, some debatable choices.

Made in QGIS and Inkscape
