Thanx Kava! I remember my grandfather saying that 2 Fijian made boats traveled from Rarotonga to Fiji for the purpose of obtaining more Fijian vaka. As it happened, they had to dock in Samoa due to bad winds. They ended up siding with the ruling Fijian warlords that were there at the time and was later the ruling empire there for a short time until the Tongan occupancy

Nobody is wrong. I don't profess to know everything but your reality is yours and yours alone. If you think in your own heart it's the truth then who am I to say otherwise.

One thing I know for certain, in ancient times our ancestors have "contact" with each other constantly. You can read whatever you want to read into that.

By the way my answer in the previous post was a joke and I'm sorry for that.

The Fijians used the Raro warriors in battle because of our warrior nature! Fiji were no match in the Cook Is. so we stayed out of everyones business.......but I know that parts of southern Samoa was said to have been ruled by a Raro. Just sayin

Funny you say that when one of Rarotonga's original rulers was Samoan specifically Tui Manu'a Alia Matua known in the Cook Islands as KARIKA. Karika started the Makea/Karika royal line in Rarotonga.
