Who are the Polynesians? Where did they come from? How did they get from island to island and back again? What do they have to do with us? Christina Thompson's book Sea People examines these questions in a lively interview. The exploration of the Pacific by Europeans took hundreds of years because they didn't know where they were in the enormous ocean and followed the trade winds which took them on set routes. The Polynesians knew the sea intimately. Now they are facing their biggest challenge due to Climate Change.
