I recall the stories I heard about giants on the Pacific islands.
The giants of the Pacific islands:
- The old men told me legends of giants but I did not believe that they
could be

of giants are said to have been found
rooted in reality!

Terje "Terry" Dahl sailed his small yacht alone from Norway to the Pacific Ocean, starting in Oslo in 1983. For four years he sailed between seldom visited islands until Coco Loco was run into by a ship in Solomon Islands. The old men on the islands loved to tell him their old legends about giants. Terje thought they were interesting but believed they were fairytales like the trolls of the
Norwegian mountains. But now - so many years later - he is wondering if the legends could be rooted in facts!

- When I was sailing my yacht Coco Loco from one remote island to another in the Pacific the old men always called me to their house to have a chat. Very often they would tell me their old legends, and I told some of the Norwegian fairytales.
    I was not interested of giants in those days. I liked better to learn about the old way of living on the islands; their traditions and culture. But so many times the conversations ended up with legends, and their legends almost always involved giants. And I soon realized that the islanders all over the Pacific, and not only the old men, believed that the giants had lived. Their legends about them were not fairytales but true stories! Yes, it used to be the duty of the old men to teach their children the legends because the stories were their history books.
    I did not, unfortunately, write down all the legends I was told. For me they were just fairytales like those about the trolls in Norway. I did not at that time realize that so many legends have a root in the real happenings; but had been changed quite lot by being passed from person to person through what might be hundreds of years.

The stone gods of Marquesas Islands and Tahiti
The first island where I cast anchor in the South Pacific (after crossing the Atlantic Ocean, going through the Panama canal and stopping briefly on Galapagos Island) was Hiva Oa in the Marquesas islands. Here most yachties coming from Europe did their immigration clearance to French Polynesia instead of sailing to Tahiti; and no wonder after a about a month at sea!
    I did not, as far as I remember, talk with any old men about their legends on Hiva Oa but I had a look at some of the of old statues of stone.
     In Panama I had found my countryman Thor Heyerdahl's
book "Fatu-Hiva - Back to Nature" (1974) in a second hand shop, and during the crossing I had been reading it. He and his young wife Liv had settled down in the jungles of Fatu Hiva, but had become sick and had travelled to

Hiva Oa to see a doctor.
      Heyerdahl became interested in the ancient stone statues on the island and old chief Tei Tetua on Fatu Hiva later told him that they depicted his ancestors; white skinned people that had come from a dry, hot country in the east. This was the very start of Heyerdahl theories of migration in the Pacific. He later
saw very simular statues in South America and heard stories about a white skinned and bearded sun God that had come from another land in the east and later sailed out into the Pacific: Kon-Tiki.
    "Tiki" is also what the islanders of Marquesas Islands have been calling their statues for centuries. They are also said to depict Gods.
    I took a picture of an ancient stone statue called Tiki Takai'i on Hiva Oa. It is about 2.50 meter tall and has six fingers.
Tiki in Tahiti

    Later I sailed to Fatu Hiva and saw simular statues there. I also visited the place where Heyerdahls hut had been standing on an ancient stone platform.
    Tahiti is the main island in French Polynesia and outside the Paul Gauguin museum in the capital Papeete I saw a stone statue simular to those of Marquesas Islands. It is also about 2.50 meter tall and has six fingers. I
later learned that it came from the island of Raivavae in the Austral Islands and that the men that were ordered to move the statue to Tahiti had been terrified the spirit of the God should harm them (some are said to have died)! I took a picture and touched the statue but I did not feel any fear!
The stone walls and fish traps of Huahine

On my way to American Samoa I stopped on another of the outer islands of French Polynesia: Huahine. I rented a scooter and motored around the island - and were impressed by ancient fish traps and platforms/walls of stone. I wondered if the Polynesians of the island had made this because the people seems to have no traditions in building in stone but I did not ask anybody, as far as I remember. I have now learned that the legends say that a demigod, the giant Hiro, was the man behind many of the structures, Yes, his gigantic canoe had even cut the island in two!
Moso footprint
Terje and Moso's footprint
A gigantic footprint in Samoa
On the outer island of Sawaii in Samoa I heard the legend about a giant called Moso; and I found the way to what is said to be his footprint; on the north-west coast of the island.
    "May Moso eat you!" is an expression you can hear even today, when people quarrel or parents are scolding their children. Moso hat is said to have jumped from Samoa to Fiji - and his footprint is where he took off (you will find simular footprint in Fiji where he landed). A tribe of giants, the Hiti, is said to have lived in Samoa before a great flood.
Giant footprints in a lagoon in Tuvalu
The footprints of Nanumea
Terje and footprints in the lagoon of Nanumea
My yacht Coco Loco and I visited the outer atoll of Nanumea in the small polynesian country of Tuvalu.
     The people showed me the "footprints" after a giant in the shallow water close to the beach in the lagoon: Four deeper and somewhat circular areas a in the coral-reef where he should have landed after fighting with another giant in the sky. The prints were after his feet and hands.
The footprints and old gods of Kiribati
I had before I left Norway read the book "The Stones of Kiribati" by Erich von Däniken and I thought it would be fun to find the large footprints and graves he has seen in the village of Banraeaba on Tarawa, the main atoll of Kiribati.
Schoolkids and footprint

Terje's foot and footprint
Terje's foot and footprint
    I found the village and it discovered what was said to be footprints of a giant, his wife and children in a schoolyard. They all had six toes. The largest footprint was about one and a half meter long and an early missionary had planted a coconut palm in the middle of the footprint to try to make the people forget their old un-Christian believes. The kids were not afraid but just played on top of them and had great fun showing them to the white man. A few years earlier nobody would have dared gone near the footprint, they were considered to be sacred and taboo.
    Von Däniken was also shown a 5 meter long grave in where a giant was said to buried, but he was unable to examine it. I did not manage to find the grave, but was later shown an open space in the bush that was very dangerous to visit because of the spirits the old gods.
    I sailed to the outer atoll of Butaritari and a man named Baraniko befriended me and took me to his house. His father-in-law was an old man named Kauriata. He told me that Butaritart had visits of giants in the older days. They could fly through the air and were so tall that they had to bend the coconut-palms away where they walked.
    I told Kauriata about the Norwegian mythological gods of Valhall, that they had a pig called Særimne. That the gods cooked the pig and ate all the meat, but that the meat had grown back the nest morning.     Kauriata shook his head in surprise and told me it was almost the same with their old gods: they had a special fish. They ate the meat on one side, turned the fish around and ate the other side. When they turned the fish around again the meat had grown back! So they just kept on turning the fish!

The giant princess of Marshall Islands
On the small outer atoll of Lae in Marshall Islands I was told an old legend of a huge, hollow cylinder of timber that came drifting across the ocean a long, long, long time ago.     The cylinder drifted ashore on Lae and there were giants inside. They islanders were very afraid of them, but since the giants were weak from drifting across the ocean the villagers managed to kill them.
     They then discovered that one of the giants they had killed was a princess, and they regretted what they had done. So even today the islanders throw a piece of food in the water to ask forgiveness when passing by the islet where the giant princess is buried; when they go out the passage for fishing in the ocean.
    I went fishing with the islanders in a open boat and they told me the legend when we came close to the islet. We went ashore and they showed me the place where the princess should have been buried in the bush but it was not marked in any way. When we sailed out the passage one of the men threw some pieces of bread in the sea as an offering.

Terje and Nan Madol wall
On the island of Pohnpei (Ponape) in Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) there are some very interesting ruins called Nan Madol. I visited them two times when I sailed Coco Loco from island to island.
    This "ancient city of stone" is built on nearly 100 artificial islets with tidal canals between them; situated on the south-eastern side of the island. Bones of giants have supposedly been found both inside the ruins and also in the dense forest on the adjacent larger island.     
     The local people of Pohnpei were afraid of the mysterious place and said it was full of ghosts and bad spirits.
    One legend says that it was two young twins, Olsihpa and Olsohpa, that had made Nan Modol. And they did it on one single one night by making the stones fly. Well, this would have made it more easy to transport the basalt logs from the on the other side of the island, because some of them are 50 tons or more; to too heavy to have been transported on bamboo rafts as mainstream researchers say!
    Olisihpa and Olosohpa were said to have come from far away across the ocean and they were much taller than native islanders. Their offspring with the local women became the chiefs of the island, the Saudeleur.
End of the sailing but more gigantic adventures in the Pacific!

Emma, Sonia and Terje
Coco Loco was run into and damaged beyond repair by a ship in the Solomon Islands in 1987. I took plane to Norway to see family and friends - and to publish a book about my adventures. But I had a return ticket in my wallet - I was not ready to leave the islands and the people of the Pacific!
    After three months in Kiribai I travelled on to Tuvalu - and met a girl on the outer island of Nukulaelae. "I am getting married - are you coming?" was the telegram to my parents. They came in time for the wedding and they also visited the house Emma Toematagi and I were building in local style on a uninhabited island on the coral-reef, three kilometres across the lagoon from the village of about 300 people.

The grave of the giant Tevalu
I enjoyed the simple island life on our island: Fishing, growing a few vegetables in the sand and feeding our chicken and pigs. And after two years we got a daughter, Sonia.
    One day a father and son archaeological team from Japan came to Nukulaelae. They wanted to dig in the middle of the main village but I told them that in the old days the village was on one of the other islets, Niuoko.
    Nobody was living on Niuoko anymore, but in the bush the Japanese were shown a overgrown grave in the dense bush. It was very large; about 3.5 meters long and 1.5 meter wide.
    The islanders agreed that it had to be the grave of Tevalu (Te Valu). A very old legend (as told by my father-in-law and another old man on Nukulaelae) said that he had been a giant that had lived on this islet. Tevalu was a bad giant, he used to snatch children playing on the beach; kill and eat them.
    The legends said that two brothers, who aimed at his eyes with their fishing-spears while he was sleeping, finally managed to kill Tevalu.
    The islanders first wanted the archaeologists to open the grave, but then changed their minds: It was too dangerous! And a violent storm the same evening convinced them that they in the future should not make any attempt to disturb the grave of Tevalu!

The giant kings of Tonga
It was not so easy for us to get permanent permission to live in Tuvalu, even if I was marred to Emma, and at one stage we had to leave the country to re-apply for our visas. We travelled to Tonga, where I had never been before.
    Ha'amonga'a Maui is a stone trilithon on the main island of Tongatapu. It is constructed from three coral limestone blocks. It is about 5 meters high, almost 1.5 meters wide and almost 6 meters long.     The legends say that the trilithon was made by the demigod Maui because no ordinary islander would be able to carry and construct a kind of gate of such heavy stones. One legend says the stones are from the from Wallis Island about 600 kilometers away and that Maui brought them to Tonga in a giant canoe.
    Just some meters away from the trilithon is a standing stone called "Maka faakinanga". The meaning is "stone to lean against" and is said to serve as a backrest for the king. Well, to use this stone as a backrest he must have been extremely tall!
    The royal family of Tonga used to be proud of descending from the giant gods, and they kept their blood by marrying within the family. They are still very tall; king Tupou IV who died in 1996 was 2 meters tall and his mother Queen Salote just ten centimeters shorter!
    Yes, many of the chiefly families of the South Pacific can trace their family back to the giants and some have reddish hair as the giants supposedly had. They are often very tall and it also seems common that they are more European looking with lighter skin, even if they can trace their families back to long before the explorers arrived.
Not giants but climate refugees
We loved our island-life but suddenly
something unexpected happened: We

got cyclones with waves that tried to wash us to the sea. In Tuvalu - a country that is too close to equator to have cyclones. Well, there are no mountains to climb on the flat atolls of Tuvalu - and we had our little daughter. We moved to Norway in 1995. And was called "the world's first climate refugees" by media all over the world.
    But Norway was too cold for us and too far away from our friends and family in Tuvalu so after some years we decided to try to move to Australia. And this time we also had a son: Olav.
The tribe of ancient giants in New Zealand
Martin Doutré and stones
Martin Doutré and stones
When staying in New Zealand to apply for our permanent resident visas to Australia I contacted Martin Doutré, an american born privat researcher that for many years had studied what he believes is pre-Polynesian structures.
     He showed me carved large stones and shaped hills but explained that the mainstream scientists refused to even have a look at what he had found. One of the reasons might be that the Maori of New Zealand today refutes that there were anybody living in New Zealand before they arrived even if many of their legends tells about the people that was there before them like the tribe of giants called Te Kahui Tipua; most probably because it is big money involved when it come to the traditional ownership of land.
      Martin also told me about a female archaeologist who used to be a close friend of him. She had been working in the USA, and one day they dug up giant bones. All of a sudden the us-army turned up and the archaeologists were ordered to dig the bones down again and say nothing about what they had found. Well, later she happened to tell Martin about it and he put the story on his web-pages. The woman lost her job - and Martin a friend.

I always wanted to see the giant statues of Easter Island
Easter Island statues
Easter Island statues
I have always have wanted to travel to Easter Island to see the giant statues there. But I have never had the chance or enough money. But it was when I did some research on the statues ("moai") to write an article for Norwegian internet magazine Sydhav ("South Seas") that I discovered that some of them had six fingers. Strange.
    Thor Heyerdahl of the Kon-Tiki fame, who led his first archaeological expedition to Easter Island in 1955-1956 had noticed the same on one statue but decided to consider
Easter Island statue San Augustin statue

it unimportant. A pity, because he should have seen that some of the simular looking stone statues he took pictures of in San Augustin in Colombia in South America also had six fingers!
    Well, I thought it was very strange that old stone statues should have six fingers, and guess what I discovered; so did many ancient statues all over the world!
    One legend on Easter Island is telling that the first people on the island had come over the ocean from west while another is telling that they had come from a hot and dry land in the east. They should have been 7 ½ to 8 ½ feet tall (2.30 to 2.60 meters) - survivors after a world wide catastrophe.

    Jacob Roggeveen, the Dutch explorer, was th e first European to sight and visit the island; on Easter Sunday in 1722. He wrote that there were three distinct groups of people on the island; dark skinned, red skinned, and very pale skinned people with red hair.
    British explorer captain James Cook visited Easter Island in 1774, and his seamen described that some of the people on the islands were so tall that they could walk upright between their legs.
    I have written, so far, about 20 Norwegian articles about Easter Island because the mysteries of the statues and the legends might give a clue to who these tall people where.
     No large bones has, as far as I know, ever been found on the island, and just a few Caucasian-looking old skulls.
    New DNA-testing of chicken, sweet potatoes and people has showed early contact between Easter Island and South America. The resin on a mummy from Peru shows early contact from the west - all the way from Papua New Guinea!

Thor Heyerdahl
"To say something about the future you must know the past"
The bearded Gods
The DNA-testing had shown that Thor Heyerdahl's theories about migration were not the wild fantasies some mainstream scientist claimed.
   Heyerdahl never mentioned giants, and I guess that was wise; it was a very complicated puzzle he was trying to put together and to bring in giants would have made people believe that he totally had lost his wits. Especially in a country where giants just are trolls of the fairytales! But we know that Thor Heyerdahl came everywhere across legends of white skinned and blond giants that often were called Gods - and he followed the traces after them all the way from the Pacific islands to the Caucasus Mountains! He called them "The Bearded Gods".
     Thor Heyerdahl was first of all was a scientist, and he lead archaeological expeditions all over the world up til he died in 2002. His main goal was to research on our cultural origins and he always had a team of well-respected archaeologists with him.

Giants and Six Fingers
All over the Pacific I had heard legends of giants and was surprised that the islanders always claimed them to be true stories and not fairytales. But I did not try to figure out if there could be any truth to the legends before I discovered that so many ancient statues had six fingers! And that the very often depicted local Gods and that also were very tall - what we can call giants!
    I made two web-pages under my Sydhav-domain to learn more, Giants and Six Fingers. And I have learned a lot about giants and can no longer doubt that a race of very tall humans have lived:
    Two of the world's most renowned researchers on ancient human species, professor Abesalom Vekua and professor Lee Berger, are convinced that humans have been through a period of gigantism. They can even show us bones after them!
    But this was long time ago: Vekua says the bones found in the Borjomi Gorge is at least
25.000 years old and Berger says that the tall human race in South Africa lived for about 300.000 years ago.
Where are the bones?

Kaimanawa. New Zealand
But the legends in the Pacific about giants cannot be that old, can they? And where are the proof - where are the bones after the giants on the islands?
    Well, Rotuma is an isolated island far north of the main islands in Fiji, and during the Second World War coast watchers shall have uncovered shin bones over 1 meter long, and other soldiers shall also have found caves filled with giant human bones. No bones remain today, but two bones after one giant shall have been kept for people to see until quite resent time. You can see what is said to be graves of giants, looking like dolmen; made with large stones.
     Several books tell that giant bones were found in Nan Madol of Pohnpei, but no bones are on display. The story goes that the German governor Victor Berg in 1907 defied a royal ban, opened a sealed tomb of former rulers and found skeletons two to three meters tall. A wild storm ensued and the next morning the governor died.
    In Kiribati and Tuvalu there are some very large and old graves after what is said to be giants but the people are afraid and will not let anybody open them.
    In Tonga you can see the large pyramidal tombs of ancient kings/gods, so called "lagi" ("heaven") but they are not allowed to be touched/excavated.
    Many of the pyramidal structures and standing stones that you could/can see on Tahiti, Raiatea, Huahine and so many of the islands in the Pacific are connected to legends of giants: Often they are said to have been their graves or temples. But again: No bones.
    The same goes for New Zealand. It has been written that some people living less than three hundred years ago were very tall and it is a fact that people in the families of these giant Gods are tall still today. According to the local newspaper, a very large skeleton was found about 7 feet below the surface on the Saltwater Creek spit, Timaru south of Christchurch, in 1875. But - the bones are gone.

Heyerdahl, Easter Island wall.

Laughed at Thor Heyerdahl
Mainstream scientists once laughed at Thor Heyerdahl's migration theories. And it is first these days, through DNA-testing of sweet potatoes, chicken and people, that we start to understand that Heyerdahl was a brilliant scientist and not only the "Kon-Tiki adventurer".

    Heyerdahl said that the legends more often are ancient history books than fairytales. More and more often the archaeologists discover that the places and event described in legends in fact did exist. You just have to understand that the stories have been changed over time, that they had a different view of the world than we have today and that they used other words to describe what they saw and experienced!
Global cataclysm
And of course, the world might have changed too!
    So many legends, from all over the world, tell that the giants were survivors of a global cataclysm. The books have always told us that we have had no such world wide catastrophes but this view seems to
Komet treffer
Komet treffer
Vitrified wall, Peru
Vitrified wall, Peru
change. Something definitely happened about 12.000 years ago; evidence clearly shows that we had a global climate change, with a mass extinction where almost half of the earth's animals died out.
     What happened? Well, there is physical evidence that a comet hit our planet at the end of the last ice age, so this could be the culprit. But Robert M Schoch, famous for dating the Great Sphinx to a much older date than previously believed, asks if solar outburst could have caused strong electrical discharges that hit Earth; melting glaciers, cause water to evaporate and then precipitate as torrential rain. He believes that the melting of ice sheets kilometres thick would release pressure on the crust and cause catastrophic earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic activity around the globe.

Builder Gods
Thor Heyerdahl asked me on the phone if we humans might have gone extinct almost to the last man, one or several times. And he wondered if we could have been the culprits ourselves, as so many legends and religious scriptures say. Well, I have in another article asked if the Denisovans, a newly discovered archaic human race, could have had been first giant kings of Egypt, and if their advanced technology "capsized" the Earth.
    The legends of Egypt tells about several periods for humanity. "Zep Tepi" ("First Time"), was founded by "Builder Gods" who came from an island that sank during a catastrophic flood. They recreated civilisation from memory.
     You will find same all over the world. And many places, like old Mesopotamia, the time before the catastrophe is called "Golden Age". This was a time of peace and prosperity, with food enough for all without farming. It was a time when the Gods walked among the people. And these Gods were giants.
Scratched the surface
I have just scratched the surface when it comes to legends of giants in the Pacific, because I have only looked into the few examples where I have personal experience.
    Of course it seems silly to believe that four hollows in a lagoon can be from a giant falling from the sky, but so many legends tells that the giants could fly. Might be they had a technology that made flying easy without the need for a large plane? And the footprints in Kiribati do not have been set in stone by the giant's and his family's feet but made with tools by people who wanted to remember/show how big the giants were! The legends have root in reality but it might have been in a reality different to what we experience today!
    To understand the legends of giants in the Pacific and else I believe that we must take a closer look at all the megaliths all over the world - from ancient statues to dolmen and pyramids. It is hundred of
thousands, might be millions, of them; and so often we have no good explanation on how they were made, by who and what they were for. Were they made by a race of humans that had a more advanced technology than we have today - were they made in a hidden time we just have started to uncover - was the Golden Age real?

What do you think?
"I have the following comments on your article about the giants of the Pacific":
  E-mail address:

Here are the ideas, thoughts and facts our readers have sent in:

Interesting read, thank you for sharing your observations and the information you have accumulated in your adventures and travels, much appreciated.

I write to thank you for a wonderful website concerning history of Giants. I am from the Marshall Islands and there is also ancient folklore stating that our islands were dropped from a Basket by a Giant. This story is found in German Anthropology (Augustin Kramer is one of them) and is also a famous folklore. One island specifically Namdrik Atoll which you can look up is described as being dropped from a Giant and stepped on by a Giant and that's how it got its shape. If you look at the shape of Namdrik Atoll, it literally looks like a Heel of a foot. Our story of our origins pertaining to a Giant Race is also found in parts of Micronesia.
Desmond N. Doulatram

Very interesting info from your visits in the Pacific with the giants' tombs and legends. By the way, I'm also a great fan of the brilliant scientist Thor Heyerdal. The subject of a giant race is real info and factual. But the officials and too many mainstream archeologists and anthropologists are lying to the public about these facts! They are so afraid of loosing their power/control over peoples' minds. One day everybody will know the truth! Keep up your good work Terje!
Chusri Larsen

Very interesting article, are you still living in Australia? I am a New Zealand researcher and former civil engineer and have been studying megaliths around the Pacific and the world for that matter. My theory, which I shouldn't claim as mine because its been around for a while, is that there was indeed a great flood as all cultures seem to recall and most likely around 12000 years ago. I believe a lot of these structures are remnants of this civilization which have since been reclaimed by locals and graffiti'd with their names. Of course through my studies I have also come by many tales of giants and white races also.
     I believe the most challenging evidence we have against the current history taught by science is the structures throughout the Oceania region, along with well documented "advanced" stone cutting and fabrications found around the rest of the world. Oddly, there too seems to be a systematic ignorance for people to fund studies into this. My theory which is a conspiracy theory of sorts is because the technology used was so advanced and if re-discovered would put a lot of businesses out of profit, but would make a much happier world.
    There is a very old and almost eradicated book here in New Zealand that speaks of two mythical races. The faery race, which some would call the Patupaiarehe which is a Celtic or Norse like race, but another they call in this book the Twighlight people. The twighlight people, were very tall and came from the stars. Aliens or Gods? It is hard to say.
    The Timaru remains were documented in the papers but another case harder to find are caves near port Waikato. Rumors I have heard say that the caves there were sealed off because it was dangerous, but this was only shortly after a whole bunch of giant skeletons were found up there. There should be some trace of this on the internet left anyway.
