  1. Polynesians

    The Polynesian people are a collection of various ethnic groups that speak Polynesian languages, a branch of the Oceanic languages within the Austronesian languages, and inhabit Polynesia. They number over 1,500,000 people. Polynesians are speakers of a subgroup of Austronesian languages, and their origins are suggested to extend back into mainland Asia with some Melanesian genetic admixture. Pre-Polynesians are thought to have occupied the eastern islands of South-East Asia at ≈2,000 BC, their Lapita culture with its characteristic pottery expanding rapidly through Melanesia and out from the Solomon Islands into the western islands of Polynesia by ≈1,200–1,000 BC. Expansion to the eastern islands of the Pacific occurred largely between AD 1 and 1,000. Eastern Polynesia includes Tahiti, Easter Island, Hawaii, Marquesas, Northern and Southern Cooks, the Australs, Pitcairn, and New Zealand. A colonizer model of rapid exploration and settlement of the uninhabited eastern zone has been proposed based on searching by sailing upwind with a relatively safe downwind return The results are consistent with a founding population that includes ≈70 women
