What? Google is your easy to use search engine.

Inhabitants of the following islands and regions are not considered to be Pacific Islanders: Russia's Kuril Islands, Alaska's Aleutian Islands, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, as they are not located within the three regions of Oceania (Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia).[10][11] - Wiki

ignorant Filipinos that live in the states consider themselves as pacific islanders which their claims are so stupid. Filipinos living in the Philippines consider themselves as Asians.--heck i don't even hear Filipinos in Philippines talk about pacific islander stuff....when i go to Philippines all they do is listen to Asian and dance Asian stuff. Geographically and ethnically we are Asians.

Oh Yea. the part were super junior, 4minute, ft. island, Shinee, (Famous Korean Bands) say that they are going on an "Asia Tour" they include Philippines in there. so are most of you saying that South Korea is lying when they say Philippines are Asians?

yeah, I remember during the SATs being a bit confused too, but what most people are saying here makes sense. I always thought that people who were considered Pacific Islanders were in Islands exclusively in the Pacific. However, geographically most of the Philippines is located in the South China Sea of the western Pacific, where as islands like Guam and Samoa are exclusively in the Pacific.
