Early Observations of Marquesan Culture, 1595-1813.


Early Observations of Marquesan Culture, 1595-1813. by Edwin N. Ferdon

The Marquesas Islands of the South Pacific have been inhabited by Polynesian peoples since around A.D. 300 but were not visited by Europeans until 1595. Ferdon has drawn on the records of these early visitors to paint a broad picture of Marquesan social organization, religion, material culture, and daily life.
