Polynesia - Visual Quick Study

About 4,000 years ago, Austronesian speakers migrated eastward from the Asian mainland to in the area referred to as Near or Western Oceania. The subsequent expansion of these Austronesians into Eastern Oceania began around 1200 BC and led to the colonization of the islands in the eastern Pacific Ocean. This expansion ended with the settlement and colonization of New Zealand around 1250 AD.
