Papua New Guinea has more languages than any other country on Earth, and is very culturally diverse. Custom and indigenous cultures are still often very strong. Urban life in PNG reflects the tensions between the old and the new, the indigenous and the global. This category includes sites that reflect the make up of the Papua New Guinea community: its people, its history, and resources and institutions that serve the people of Papua New Guinea.
