Abstract: This thesis investigates Polynesian origins, migrations, and navigation. The main issues it examines are the questions of where the ancestors of the Polynesians came from, and how they managed to settle the islands of Polynesia. The second question is itself twofold. Firstly there is the matter of the sequence and time that settlement occurred, and secondly there is the debate about whether or not settlement occurred as the result of accidental or deliberately navigated voyages.
