I grew up in Samoa and never heard of the term "Polynesian" until I lived Overseas. And when I came across it - I understood it to be simply a term that Foreigners used to refer to Samoans, Tongans, Hawaiians etc as a Group.

I know I first heard of the word from a Tongan friend in class. He was telling me I'm a Polynesian and had no clue what it was. He had to break it down for me Lol. Still I don't use the word often.

And if I may ask, Samoa or AM Samoa ?

"The genetic admixture in Polynesian history between East Asians (∼87%) and Near Oceanians (∼13%) occurred ∼3 kya, prior to the colonization of Polynesia. Fijians are of Polynesian (∼65%) and additional Near Oceanian (∼35%) ancestry not found in Polynesians, with this admixture occurring considerably after the initial settlement of Remote Oceania."

I can't believe you had a foreigner tell you what you are. Bloody ridiculous. I'm Samoan. Only for conversation purposes with Palagis I might throw around the Polynesian term but its like saying 'cutlery' re: like wtf has that got to do with a fork from a fork's point of view.

Well I wasn't raised with the word Polynesian as were you. I was raised taught I was Hawaiian, I grew up in a Hawaiian household. Only Haole's and Tourist guides call us Polynesian. I'll use Polynesian to show we are of the same genetic stock like Samoans, Tongans etc. That's about it.
