Yep the Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, English and the odd Italian were traveling around the Pacific at that time. Identification of a skull is by IDing certain characters or parameters, if it fits certain parameters it has a good chance of belonging to x nationality or race.
The Polynesian, Japanese, Arabs, Chinese and South Asians, were also in the area of the Pacific and some of their populations can be mistaken for "white" people in some cases, especially Ainu, northern Chinese, Northern Indians, etc. You also had by this time people of mixed parentage who of course tend to straddle the lines of IDing.
So, either a mistaken identity or a clue to an interesting tale!

Mr Winter said that Captain Cook recorded, in the log of his second journey to New Zealand aboard the Resolution in 1772-5, a tale told to him by a Maori chief of a ship having been shipwrecked many years earlier.
Cook said the Maori told him that they given the ship's captain the name "Rongotute".
Early missionaries wrote of hearing the same story from Maori, who related that the survivors of the ship had been killed and eaten when they came ashore.
They said that many Maori had subsequently died in an epidemic, possibly as a result of exposure to a newly introduced infection from Europe.
Only one picture, and not a very good one at that, a top view.
This sort or thing always makes me think they are hiding something.
Is this a Cro-Magnon type that allegedly vanished 30,000 years or so ago.
I have seen it written that if they were alive today you could pass them on the street and not notice anything different about them.
HA HA , I don't think so. First they are large people up to 6'7" and built like we used to say, a brick outhouse.
Also they have a lower cranium - their eyes are not in the center of the head as ours are, and they have a large bulging occiput.
270 years old? How do they know that. Carbon dating can't be used for anything that "new".
Takal Makan / Tachla MacKan is a godd example of European anomalies .
Unfortunately the vested interests have often destroyed evidence contrary to the current paradigm.
Buddha in Nepal / Tibet is often portrayed as Blue Eyed.
Rameses the second has blond hair.
Easter Island had fair skinned people.
The Ancient Gods of the Pacific and Meso America are often European ie. Kon Tiki , Viracocha , Manco Capac , Quetzal Coatl etc.
