BIOLOGY, GENETICS, MORPHOLOGIES, ANTHROPOLOGY and LINGUISTICS on POLYNESIAN ORIGINS.
Archaeology has given us the time sequence of Polynesian island
settlements through radiocarbon dating and the Lapita pottery findings. Savai'i Samoa 2000-500BC (before birth
of Christ and western navigation technology ) to Marquesas (after death of Christ) 100AD, to Tahiti
300AD and then to Hawaii 500AD. Return voyages from east to west Polynesia led to the settlement of Aotearoa New Zealand
800-1000AD from the Cook Islands. These were the periods when Polynesians (Tanata mao'i) settled the
vast Pacific Ocean.
Biology, Morphologies and Genetics
Genetic studies done
in 2000 (PNAS), 2001, 2002 (GENETICS) by scientists and geneticists showed that there is definite similarity
between ancient South East Asians and unique Polynesians of Samoa-Tonga realm (SAVAII and UPOLU).
Fijians and Tongans have Melanesian genetics as they border Melanesia and Polynesia. It is the culture of
Fijians and Polynesian-mixed Fijians that connect them to Polynesia. Fijian and Tongan genetics
and biological morphologies are closer to Melanesians. Other Polynesians like Samoans (SAVAII), Tahitians (HAVAII) and
Hawaiians (HAWAII) do not have Melanesian genetic markers (2002 Genetics), yet they possess the mixed morphologies of
ancient mongoloid-caucasoid offshoots (European-Asian) and negroid (African) phenotypes like that of a modern day Tiger
Woods with Egyptian physical features.
The Samoan word Tonga means "South." It is held in Samoan oratory
traditions that the original people of Tonga were Polynesians from Samoa and Melanesians from Fiji and Vanuatu. Tonga-Samoan
Polynesians procreated with the Melanesians of Fiji and Vanuatu and developed the modern-day Tongan heritage, which explains
the scientific findings of mixed Polynesian-Melanesian genetic markers of Tongans (Genetics 2002). Melanesian
cultural influence was very strong in the Tonga islands, thus Polynesians remained in Samoa. To keep the Polynesian
bloodline strong, royalty of Tonga sought marriage with Samoan Alii families, hence Queen Salamasina and Taufa'ahau Tupou.
These old traditions are well known in the southern Polynesian islands. Despite scientific evidence, we as Polynesians know
from our similarities that Tonga is a part of the Polynesian family, Malo e lelei Tama si'i.

Languages and Linguistics
Linguistic studies confirm a linear similarity of languages spoken by Samoans
to the Marquesans and Tahitians and to the Hawaiians. Languages of Samoa, Marquesas, Tahiti and Hawaii are one in
the same with a few differences, comparable to an English man versus an American man.
Polynesians had one language, but over time they used different
slangs and enunciation of words. However, the basic words like people, greetings, love, house, counting numbers,
earth, family, sky, ocean, bathe, emotions, eating, fishes, foods as in kalo, talo, taro, are still
the same among the Polynesian people. Basic elements of the dialects are still the same as well.
ONE PEOPLE: TANATA MO'I or MAO'I
(Samoan) 1500BC to TA'ATA MAOHI (Tahitian) 300AD to KANAKA MAOLI (Hawaiian) 500AD to MAORI ( New Zealand Islanders ) 800-1000AD.
ONE LOVE: ALOFA (Samoan) 1500BC to AROHA (Tahitian)300AD to ALOHA (Hawaiian)500AD.
GREETINGS: TALOFA (Samoan) 1500BC to TALOHA (Marquesan)100AD
to ALOHA (Hawaiian) 500AD.
Overall, it is modern evidence from Archaeology, Anthropology, Genetics
and Linguistics that ascribe the POLYNESIANS as direct descendants of Savaii Samoa. The traditional
customs of the Alii Matai (1) Alii and (2) Tulafale = orators or lineage chanters are similar in Samoa, Marquesas,
Tahiti and Hawaii and Aotearoa. The worship of gods from Samoa like Tagaloa or Kanaloa in Savaii Samoa to Ta'aroa in
Havaii Tahiti to Kanaloa in Hawaii are also familial ties to the oneness of these Polynesian people.

The Polynesian Samoan Hawaiian medical terms in books " POLYNESIAN INTERCONNECTIONS " are dedicated to the late Paramount
Ali'i Lei'ataua Le Sa Peter Ah Ching of Upolu, Manono, Samoa and Hawai'i nei and Pago Pago, American Samoa, whom was
hospitalized at Straub Medical Clinic Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii 2003. This knowledge of medical Polynesian terminology
is disseminated for the education of nurses and doctors upon caring for the Polynesian people of these Polynesian islands:
Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, Hawai'i and Aotearoa and the Polynesian triangle at large. Knowledge and a willingness to
learn, communicate and help patients is in essence why people become healthcare workers ideally. God bless and may all
benefit from this endeavor for effective medical care upon patients.
" Ua mo moe toa, malo le fai o le faiva lau susuga Lei'ataua Le Sa,
se Tama fa'atamali'i, e tu toa, ma mitamita i lona Samoa, tausi aiga lelei. Ia vi'ia pea le Atua i ou galuega lelei. O lau
