ni-Vanuatu men

Ni-Vanuatu is a demonym used to refer to all Melanesian ethnicities originating in Vanuatu.

It also refers, more generally, to nationals and citizens of Vanuatu, whatever their ethnicity.[1][2][3][4]

NiVan is a commonly used abbreviation of ni-Vanuatu, which comes from the French née Vanuatu, meaning a citizen of (or otherwise someone that shares a sense of belonging with) the Republic of Vanuatu.
