A chart of the genetic sequence commonly found in Polynesia. The genetic sequence of special DNA inherited only through the mother, (mitochondrial DNA), can indicate relationships between apparently disparate peoples. Study of such genes has indicated that the population of Polynesia originated in China and not in the Americas, as had previously been suggested.
