The False History of a Polynesian Race

You may have heard that Easter Island was once a lush paradise until the native Polynesians cut down all the trees and brought their people to near extinction by exploiting the environment.

Yet, a closer look at history tells a different story. The following document gives an account of those early explorers who first made contact with the people of Rapa Nui (Easter Island). The island in its prime supported between 2000 and 4000 inhabitants and at European contact this was about the population typically recorded.

So why have historians given the impression that Easter Island is an example of a fallen civilization and how on Earth did these Rapa Nui end up with a reduced population of 111 inhabitants?

Come and see why the early Rapa Nui were more capable of sustaining an earthly paradise than we given them credit for:
and come and see how Indigenous world-view appears in its pristine form from this recent decipherment of Chants found on the Easter Island tablets:
