The Polynesian islands were settled from Western Polynesia to Eastern Polynesia as indicated via carbon dating and
periods of island settlements ( Lapita pottery ). Early Polynesians migrated from the Samoan islands settled in
2000-500BC to Marquesas 100AD to Tahiti 300AD to Hawaii 500AD and then from return voyages
east to west, these Polynesians settled Aotearoa New Zealand 800-1000AD from the Cook Islands.
Sister islands found in SAMOA, TAHITI and HAWAII are Upolu and Savaii in Samoa 2000-500BC, Uporu and
Havaii in Tahiti 300AD now called Taha'a and Raiatea and then Upolu on Hawai'i and Hamoa (Samoa), Maui in Hawaii
500AD. This was a recreation of their sister island homes in SAMOA as the children of Savaii settled new lands
in the east from Western Polynesia.
The Polynesian recreation of their original homelands in Samoa upon their
new lands in Eastern Polynesia has led to the following commonalities, today we have these places: Savai'i
(Samoa), Havai'i (Tahiti), Hawai'i (Hawaii, Big Island), Samoa (Samoa), Hamoa (Maui, Hawaii), Ta'u (Manu'a, Samoa), Ka'u (Big
Island Hawai'i), Upolu (Samoa), Uporu (Tahiti) and Upolu ( Big Island Hawaii). These were not coincidences, this
was systematically done by the voyaging children of Savaii Samoa to claim ownership (land titles) and familiarity in
their new found lands. Early European explorers inherently did the same thing, as they named American lands New
England after England in Europe and many other lands around the world.
The Samoan word Tonga means "South."
It is held in Samoan oratory tradition 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 heritage strong, royalty of Tonga sought marriage with Samoan Alii families, hence Queen Salamasina and
King Taufaahau Tupou. These old traditions are well known in the southern Polynesian islands.

Dedication: The Polynesian Samoan Hawaiian medical terms in POLYNESIAN INTERCONNECTIONS are dedicated to the late
Paramount Alii Lei'ataua Le Sa Peter Ah Ching of Upolu, Manono, Samoa, Hawai'i nei and Pago Pago, American Samoa who 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.
