Austronesians refer to people speaking an Austronesian language (originally termed Malayo-Polynesian) widely spoken in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, and other parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
Austronesians represent the largest and most widespread language group in the world; today there are about 350 million Austronesian-speaking peoples. Paths of Origins: The Austronesian Heritage takes one through the findings on ancestral origins of these peoples and how the roots of their languages trace back to Taiwan and the Philippines.
