I would say no on the idea that the Polynesians came from the NE. I've say the linguistics, mythology and archaeology evidence speak against it.
However that idea might be better looked at in a thread of its own. I apology in advance as my ability to devote time to posting will be limited for
the next two months.
Not the north east but northern BC.
But I would have to disagree, the fact that the haida and Tinglit share striking cultural similarities to hawaiians and their origin mythology is
almost identical speaks volumes .
Then there is the fact that polynesians share the 9 base pair deletion with native Americans is hard to discount.
Other things that attest to a shared heritage are the penis/vagina mortar and pestle. The use of woven mats as currency and the use of the calabash
for food and water storage. In fact the hawaiian calabash is a north American varietal.
