From Savai'i & Upolu, Samoa to Havai'i & Uporu,Tahiti to Upolu & Hawai'i, Big Island.
FAMILY from SAVAII to HAVAII to HAWAII nei.
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 upon return voyages from the east into the west,
Polynesians settled Aotearoa (800-1000AD) from the Cook Islands.
Sister islands found in SAMOA, TAHITI and HAWAII are as following: ( Upolu and Savaii ) in Samoa 2000-500BC;
( Uporu and Havaii ) in Tahiti 300AD now called Taha'a and Raiatea; ( Upolu on Hawai'i and Hamoa, Maui )
in Hawaii 500AD. This was a recreation of their sister island homes in SAMOA as the children of Savai'i settled new lands
in the east from Western Polynesia.
The Samoan word Tonga means "South." It is held in Samoan oral tradition that
the original people of Tonga were Polynesians from Samoa. Later, Melanesians moved in from nearby Fiji and Vanuatu. Tonga-Samoan
Polynesians procreated with the Melanesians of Fiji and Vanuatu and developed the modern-day Tongan bloodlines, 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 moved back to 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.

Dedication: The Polynesian Samoan Hawaiian medical terms in the books
" POLYNESIAN INTERCONNECTIONS " are dedicated to the late Paramount Ali'i Lei'ataua Le Sa Peter Lei'ataua Ah Ching of Upolu,
Manono, Samoa, 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 & Aotearoa and the Polynesian
triangle at large. Knowledge & 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.
