Incredible video No. 2 . . . the peopling of the Hawaiian Islands
Ever wondered why the totem poles of New Zealand, Tahiti, the Hawaiian Islands, southern Alaska and the Pacific Coast of Canada are so similar? All references tell us that all Native Americans walked over a land bridge between Siberia and Alaska, while Polynesians originated in the southeastern tip of Asia then sailed out into the Pacific. There should be very little similarity between the cultures of Hawaii and British Columbia.
What the anthropological references DON’T tell readers is that there are extreme similarities between the peoples of the Pacific Coast of North America and Polynesia. Like Native Americans, Hawaiians are born with a temporary blue circle on the base of their backs. Both the Hawaiians and the Haida People of British Columbia have cultural memories of epic voyages to islands scattered across the Pacific Basin. You are going to be amazed.
Tour guide Gabi Plumm astounded us with the “secret” history of New Zealand. In this video, she travels to the Hawaiian Islands and discovers that the royal family of Hawaii always maintained a different migration legend than the official one that is seen in history books or a similar one maintained by non-Hawaiian anthropologists. The Royals said that the original people of Hawaii sailed from southern Alaska and the Pacific coast of Canada.
Plumm then travels to the coastal islands of British Columbia . . . and would you believe . . . the First Nations scholars say, “Yes, this is true.” An anthropologist in a museum in British Columbia shows a wide variety of art, tools and weapons from the Pacific Coast of Canada that are very similar to those found in Hawaii.
As in the previous video by Plummtree Productions of New Zealand that we featured, this film is a magnificent work of art . . . truly World Class.

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history.Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.
