Abstract

The author argues that the Hawaiians, Samoans, Maoris, and other south sea peoples originated on the American Continent. The three native foods of Polynesia—the coconut, sweet potato, and taro root—are of American origin. The genealogical name lines of such widely separated peoples as New Zealand Maoris and Hawaiians unite 65 generations back to Hema who led a migration to New Zealand. Prior to Hema, the names in both Hawaiian and Maori legends are similar.
