11. PEOPLE OF THE SEA - Polynesians came from Taiwan.

Taiwan was known as Formosa when Japan administered the island until 1945.




MEANWHILE BACK IN 'CIVILIZATION

Young American's and later Australians went 'back to nature' on hippy communes.  One of the first was west of Cairns, North Queensland,Australia.  A group of 20 lived on a property they had purchased. 
The Vietnam-American war still had three years left to run.  The anti-war protesters around the world were getting a desire to escape city life and perhaps conscription or the draft.

The Kapinga-Nukuoro lifestyale is an ocean version of getting 'back to nature' - except  real Polynesians have been doing it successfully for many centuries.

DNA testing is pointing strongly to the origin of these people of the sea as having come from Taiwan ten thousand years ago - give or take a few years.
