Some people believe the Ancient Hawaiians to be an unintelligent society. This assumption however, is false and also an act of using bad stereo-types. Ancient Hawaiians were in fact, very intellectual. Hawaiians had an impressive ability to navigate without the help of modern-day technology. So how did they know where they going? Well, they used the provisions of the one and only mother nature. Some of the things that they used to help them during their journey were the stars, the sky, the waves, the clouds, the wind, and the birds. I know what you're thinking, there is no possiblility of using the environment as a way of navigating over seas. The purpose of this page is to convince you that the Ancient Hawaiians were capable of migrating over seas without instruments or devices.
About 1500 years ago, a daring and fearless Polynesian tribe set out to explore a new world in search of a better home and lifestyle, but ultimately ended up in a fight for survival. You might think that this difficult challenge prevented them from reaching a place they never knew existed, but their well-crafted outrigger canoes were designed so that they were able to with-stand the rough Pacific Ocean.
The Polynesian people came to Hawaii from islands far away. Their 80 feet long canoes were their means of transportation. The very first settlers began their voyage around 500-700 AD, yet it is believed that they might have came in even earlier. People later came to Hawaii from Tahiti, or islands located around that location. Although it's not certain exactly where the settlers came from, this was based on the tools and fish-hooks which have been found.
