The people of the Pacific known by most as “Polynesians” remain a mystery to scholars and the public alike as to their origins. While most academics in the fields of archaeology and anthropology strongly insist that they exclusively came from south east Asia, other researchers, and the oral traditions of the people themselves often differ with this opinion.
The presence of red hair, called “Ehu” in Hawaii and “Uru Kehu” in some of the ancient and present populations suggest connections, in the distant past, with sea farers from coastal Peru, especially the Paracas, to account for this.
The famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl was insitent that there were ancient connections between Peru and the Pacific Islands, and this book attempts to solve this riddle, without delving into Celtic or other possible European ancestry. Come explore the possibilities through science, wind directions, sea currents, sculpture, and oral traditions.
To be released as a paper book in autumn 2012 via Adventures Unlimited Press.
