Polynesia and the Spread of Humanity

Polynesians made contact with the west coast of South America as much as a century before any Spanish conquistadors, her findings imply."

This could alter (yet again) the currently understood paradigm of human settlement.

What I find particularly awesome is that this new evidence lends some credence to Buckminster Fuller's notion in GRUNCH OF GIANTS:

"Landed at many North and South American coastal points from Alaska to Chile, these raft-landed Polynesians separated into many groups as they moved eastward over many routes to both North and South America, to become known as the American Indians."
