Te ahunga me te wā tika mō te heke

E whakaaetia whānuitia ana, i ahu mai ngā tīpuna tūturu o ngā tāngata o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa i te takiwa o Taiwana, kātahi ka heke ki te tonga, ki te tonga mā rawhiti. Ka noho tahi, ka moe tahi rātou ki ngā tāngata Melanesia kei Poronihia Tata kē; nāwai ā, ka hua ko te iwi Lapita. Nā rātou ngā moutere o Whītī, o Hāmoa, o Tonga i noho. I te mano tau tuatahi, ka tau rātou ki French Polynesia, ki ngā Marquesas, kātahi ka heke ki Te Pito o te Henua (Rapanui) (700 AD), ki Hawaii (600 AD). Ko Aotearoa te whenua nui whakamutunga kia nōhia, i te wā 1320–50 AD.
