        Slavery or killed off if there was already a Chinese village, early man was very tribalistic and violent. Most human fossils from pre agrarian based societies over the age of 30 are riddled with fractures and wounds hinting that life was incredibly violent

    Can anyone explain why the Polynesians went everywhere in the Pacific except Australia? There's a large ass island right next to them and they decide to colonize all these tiny rocks instead.

      The Yolngu people in Australia did have some contact with Indonesians prior to European settlement.

      Australia is a barren poisonous rock that's still smaller than Texas to this day. It's only kept around because it's full of minerals. It's basically the moon.

      The more interesting question is new guiennei but I believe there's something about one side of the island being barely habitable.

        Ok, well why not Tasmania or the East Coast of Australia? I'm not an expert on the climate of Australia but don't those have more habitable lands? After all those were the first areas of British settlement and most of the Australian population lives in those regions.

          The polynesian settlers that originated the south pacific migrations to New Zealand and New Caledonia would have mostly hit the more dominant eastern currents pulling them away from Australia. There probably were groups that hit the mainland coast of modern NSW or QLD from the coastal current, but settlement groups would have been tiny compared to the native aboriginals and possibly pushed out. There wouldn't have been much pressure to migrate west at that time either with nearby islands being only recently settled and not having reached the natural population carrying capacity yet.
          500 years is pretty small in the grand scheme of things, if the British had never colonized Australia its very possible the polynesians would have eventually.

    Kra Dai may be a back migration of Austronesians from Taiwan but genetic evidence is lacking. The majority of proto Austronesian O-M119 found in modern day Han Chinese is the result of a rapid exapnsion of the O-F619 subclade which is possibly related to the historical kingdom of Yue.

    Always thought it was weird that the Polynesians seemed to have studiously avoided New Guinea and Australia despite them being literally right nextdoor?

    They made it a bazillion miles across empty oceans to Madagascar, Hawaii, New Zealand and even S.America (see; the sweet potato) but for some reason not New Guinea and Australia. There has to be some kinda /x/ shit going on.

            >Current evidence indicates that the Papuans (who constitute the majority of the island's peoples) are descended from the earliest human inhabitants of New Guinea. These original inhabitants first arrived in New Guinea at a time around the Last Glacial Maximum (c. 21,000 years ago) when the island was connected to the Australian continent via a land bridge, forming the landmass of Sahul. These peoples had made the (shortened) sea-crossing from the islands of Wallacea and Sundaland (the present Malay Archipelago) by at least 40,000 years ago.
            >The ancestral Austronesian peoples are believed to have arrived considerably later, approximately 3,500 years ago, as part of a gradual seafaring migration from Southeast Asia, possibly originating in Taiwan. Austronesian-speaking peoples colonized many of the offshore islands to the north and east of New Guinea, such as New Ireland and New Britain, with settlements also on the coastal fringes of the main island in places. Human habitation of New Guinea over tens of thousands of years has led to a great deal of diversity, which was further increased by the later arrival of the Austronesians and the more recent history of European and Asian settlement through events like transmigration.

            They didn't stay away from Papua at all.

            There are several Austronesian languages in Papua both in the Western and Southern part of the island. They only stayed away from the central parts of the island because they were a maritme people and wouldn't bother to go dozens of miles from the coast in territories already occupied by aggressive tribes, my dear moronic friend...

            There were barely any abos in Australia as they're too moronic to flourish, which meant the entire northern and western coast of Australia (the only good parts) were free for the taking.

    I have a romantic view of polynesians because of the Crash Bandicoot series and because of some weird CGI cartoon from the 00s or early 10s that I once watched and didn't like but I liked the mythology in that. The mc had magic powers and one of the girls that wasn't part of the main cast was very tall, strong and masculine. And the Easter Island statues gave me also a romantic view of polynesia.

    >in China
    Probably. Not easy to trace since southern Chinks are Austronesian-like. Austronesians actually inhabited southern China back then
    >in Japan
    The Ryukyus are within swimming distance but no traces of Austronesian admixture have been found. Some say some ancient tribes from southern Kyushu (namely the Hayato and the Kumaso, though some say the Azumi as well) were Austronesian but that's absolutely wishful thinking based on very scant evidence. HOWEVER, there's evidence of Austronesian occupation of the Miyako, Yaeyama, and Yonaguni islands [before] Japonic-speaking peoples ever got there. Since we know the Jomon population of the Ryukyus (especially the southern half, obviously evidenced by the said "Aceramic Period") was frick low and the Ryukyuan language branch came from southern Kyushu, I bet the Austronesians simply died off/abandoned their settlements like in the Easter, Pitcairn, and Norfolk islands. With the islands vacant, the people from up north simply moved down
