Lua nu'u[edit]

Taking into account the r to l shift and the glottal stop; Lua nu'u would transliterate to Rua Nuku - one translation of this is the Second Migration. Could this be a name for a second people to have entered Hawai'i - for example from Samoa or Rarotonga - before or simultaneous with the presumed larger migration from the Marquesas/Society islands? The Na-Wao are presumed to have descended from the Luanu'u. Maybe Na Wao (by the same linguistic shifts) is Nga Wao - the forest dwellers? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.179.40.147 (talk) 09:32, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
