Overview: New Guinea is the world's second largest island, home to some 7.5 million people. Politically, the western half of the island is under the jurisdiction of Indonesia while the eastern half forms the country of Papua New Guinea. The island is populated by a thousand different tribal groups that speak nearly as many distinct languages, making New Guinea the most linguistically diverse area in the world and making the New Guinea people cluster the largest in terms of number of people groups.
