SHOCKING Facts You Didn’t Know About Easter Island

Rapa Nui, otherwise called Easter Island, remains a bucket list tourist destination for people all over the world. The statues are the obvious draw, but we’d bet …


  1. I would urge all people interrested in Rapa Nui to read Thor heyerdahl's book "easter Island A mystery solved"

    It blew my fucking mind.

    The original settlers on Rapa Nui came from South America, or more correctly from the Tiahuanaco-culture area around lake Titicaca. And they were white, red-haired, tall and bearded.
    With them came some native Amerindians from that same area and much later, Polynesian settlers came from the west, adopting the religion and culture of the "Long-ears".

    The Maoai are statues of their kings.

    Some of the people on Easter Island are self-identified as Long-ears, they are definitely european-looking and have ancestries that goes back hundreds of years, they have no european admixture yet they look European.

    The Gods, the culture, the language, the architecture, the art, both ancient and semi-modern, the bird cult, the early depictions by European seafarers, it all fits in and supports the Christmas islanders own original mythology. That their island was colonized twice, first by a race of white tall men from the east and then by a race of shorter browner people from the west.

  2. Considering the depths to the base where they found hieroglyphs, those statues may be far older considering the amount of time it takes for grass to grow, die and regrow eventually turning into layers of soil.

  3. Glyphs developed independant of outside influence ?  ……. BS …. they have obvious links to other ancient languages in particular that found in Mohenjo Daro. There are also lines similar to the Nazca lines as well as a pyramid …… this is a much older culture than mainstream archaeology wants you to believe and it was certainly linked to other ancient cultures around the world.

  4. during WW2 , the US had to land their planes on isolated islands, set up for them to refuel or whatever. Some of these islands had tribes which had never knew anyone or anything existed but them. The US soldiers gave them food, water, clothes, medicine, ect. After WW2 these islands were no longer in use. Years later some archaeologist went to explore these remote islands only to find they had built all these mock airplanes out of wood and straw. The remote islanders were making these mock airplanes in hope that the soldiers would return with their abundance of food, water, ect. as if they were building these so they would return. I've often pondered the idea that the statues of easter island were similar to the mock wooden airplanes. Some race of people could have came across easter island thousands of years ago, bringing, food, new technology ect. Could it be that these easter island statues were an attempt to evoke "the gods" to have them come back to the island?

  5. It sounded like she had a very hard time speaking English. Probably not her first language, or second, or maybe even third. Try getting someone who can speak properly and doesn't sound like they have their nose stuffed at all times next time.

  6. If Polynesians were able to colonise most of the islands in the Pacific, making a voyage to north and/or South America doesn't look that hard considering the continent basically stretches from the North Pole to the South Pole. Voyaging to New Zealand would have been more of an obstacle since your heading south(which is a lot harder geographically)

  7. Why it's predominantly referred to as Easter Island in the West isn't a "mystery." The name "Easter Island" was given by the island's first recorded European visitor, the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen, who encountered it on Easter Sunday (5 April) in 1722, […]" Pretty sure most people know that. -smh

  8. another fact you motherfuckers forgot to mention. the Chilean govt forces the native children to speak a foreign language rather than their ancestral tongue. Rapa Nui belongs to the natives! free Rapa Nui! fuck the chilean govt!
