Made in Taiwan

The purpose of Oscar and Nathan’s trip to Rarotonga, Vanuatu, Taiwan, \
Mahia, and Samoa, was to find out where their ancestors came from.
Oscar is from Samoa and wanted to find out where his ancestors came from.
Whereas Nathan is from New Zealand and also wants to find out where
his ancestors came from. Before the two began their journey, they
took a DNA test. Therefore before they arrived they would’ve
received their results before getting to their destination.
Oscar read out his results with his grandmother, mother,
friend, and a few other family members. He found out that
his mother's side were from Eastern Asia, and his father South
Eurasia. His mother was delighted to hear this news, she felt this way
because she was happy to know where her ancestors came from,
as well as her mother. As for Oscar he read his results with his parents.
The results said that his mum came from America and his dad was a
descendant of Maui. When they had found this out they shared the news
with the village and were so happy. When they visited Taiwan they
found a lot of similarities the country had with Samoa and
New Zealand. So they thought that maybe Polynesia were migrated from
Asia. My thoughts on this clip, I think it’s pretty awesome to find out
where your ancestors come from. One day I hope I would
find out where my ancestors came from. So Oscar now thinks
that Polynesia were migrated from Asia.

Current Events

Today 27.02.18 I read an article on Kiwi Kids News: NZ school system in for a major change.
In this article, it’s explains the major changes that are going to occur in the NZ school system. They’re (government) looking at skills that are needed in the 21st century, such as Technology. It’s stated in this article ‘The entire education system, from pre-school to adult education, is to be completely overhauled’. Some of the main components of they’re plan they’re looking at are Reviews of NCEA, focusing on raising achievement for Maori and Pasifika, and Decisions on Communities of Online Learning. Those are just a few components that stood out to me out of many. My opinion on this article is that students should be really grateful for having an education because a lot of people try to make it possible for kids to have a bright future and a good education. I also look forward to seeing what education would look like in the future.

Theories of where Polynesians came from.

Today the two theories I will be comparing are the ‘Hawaiki’, and ‘South America’ theories. Some people believe that Polynesians were migrated from South America. A theorist named Thor H. once noticed the wind and ocean currents might’ve pushed travelers to the Pacific, instead of their destination. Some people believe this evidence is true. Although some do not. Some people believe that Polynesia was migrated from ‘Tahiti’. The reason for this is the similarities of Myths, Stories, Names, etc. I think that both theories have a lot of interesting and different evidence. This makes me want to research more about Theories on where we Polynesians came from. I support the theory of South America. Because of its evidence. I think the evidence of this theory is true. A particular evidence I believe is how sweet potato (kumara) came from South America. Also how wind and ocean currents pushed travelers to the Pacific.
