Polynesians hawaiian paradise - Polynesian Cultural Center | Top Oahu Attraction.

Polynesian cultures have been radically altered by Western colonialism . European explorers navigated much of the area in the latter quarter of the 18th century, and the first missionaries arrived in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Britain annexed New Zealand through the Treaty of Waitangi (1840), but interethnic tension arose between the indigenous Maori . Other colonial powers that laid claim to various parts of Polynesia included France, Germany, New Zealand, the United States, and Chile.

Gina (44, Samoan, Native Hawaiian, European, and Native American): I was excited but also skeptical. I didn’t want the culture to get twisted and misrepresented. But I was happy that perhaps there would be a Disney princess* who looked like my daughter since none of the other ones are really representative of her.

So we tend to get a lot of these 2nd – 3rd cousin matches, depending on the company you tested with.  This is why the largest segment size has become important.  Blaine Bettinger has a post entitled  The Shared cM Project – Longest Shared Segment where people had submitted their longest segment size based on their known relationships.  You can compare 2nd and 3rd cousins there and see what the average is for the longest segment size for specific relationships.
