Hmmm, okay, back to basics I guess. Is the island group, a Polynesian* one?

*Most Polynesian cultures have been influenced at some stage by Hans' "western world" question so hence why I'm asking.

And apologies to Jube and Hans: I should have said no to Hans. Again, sorry. Guess I had too much else on my mind at the time.

And Lily has it! Since Hans named Borneo first, they can share the win. Rianne, from what I can tell the Indian ocean isn't involved at all.. .
For those who don't know, it's called the rafflesia arnoldii.
