Includes exclusive interview
The people of the Pacific known by most as "Polynesians" remain a mystery to scholars and the public alike as to their origins. While most academics in the fields of archaeology and anthropology strongly insist that they exclusively came from south east Asia, other researchers, and the oral traditions of the people themselves often differ with this opinion. The presence of red hair, called "Ehu" in Hawaii and "Uru Kehu" in some of the ancient and present populations suggest connections, in the distant past, with sea farers from coastal Peru, especially the Paracas, to account for this. The famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl was insitent that there were ancient connections between Peru and the Pacific Islands, and this book attempts to solve this riddle, without delving into Celtic or other possible European ancestry. Come explore the possibilities through science, wind directions, sea currents, sculpture, and oral traditions.
After completing an Honours Bachelor Of Science degree, Brien took up traditional wood carving and sculpture at the age of 25. In 1995 he moved to Maui, Hawaii, and was hired as assistant project manager for the building of the 62 foot double hull sailing canoe (ancestor of the modern day catamaran) Mo'okiha O Pi'ilani (Sacred Lizard That Pierces The Heavens.) Peru became his next major area of interest, where he has been researching the elongated skull phenomenon and the pre-Inca megalithic sites for a decade. Brien is a regular on History Channel's Ancient Aliens and leads annual tours to South America with Megalithomania. Brien has been made the cultural ambassador for the municipality of Paracas, with a mandate to expand the global awareness of the 10,000 years of human habitation of the area. He has written several books on ancient Peru and the Pacific & co-authored with David H Childress. http://www.brienfoerster.com
