1. INTRODUCTION
The fame of your canoes can never be dimmed
The canoes which crossed the ocean depths,
The purple sea, the Great-Ocean-of-Kiwa,
Which lay stretched before them.
Maori Lament
Polynesia, an exotic name one would perhaps hear when the conversation chanced
on the topic of tourism or beautiful places. For long, the general opinion of it was that
of some lightly populated islands, home to people who live to earn the tourist dollar.
However this is not true. These "Pacific Vikings" had a long proud history and culture.
