when you think about it, the polynesians, alongside the brothers of melanesia and micronesia, travelled the entire pacific, and at one point in time inhabited every island the ocean gave birth to. our people were the masters of the seas, travelling vast distances in short periods of time. no other civilisation could do what our forefathers accomplished. it was the skill of canoe-making, patience, and the knowledge of the stars and ocean currents that granted our ancestors to navigate these oceans. we are the children of the moana.
