Shark Teeth Weapons

edited September 7 in General
Alright ladies and gents, I've got a clue on this shark teeth inlaid weapons idea and where it originated from. How it made way to hawaii, i have no idea. But just look at the map and you'll realize that the only two closest micronesians to hawaii is kiribat and marshall. I wanna hear yall's opinion on this and correct me if I'm wrong.

    Shark tooth weaponry is universally used throughout the pacific.Culture and history of Hava'i is mostly influenced by others such as Tonga,Samoa,&Tahiti.It's the last place to be settled in Polynesian history.Yapese&Marshallese went there for sightseeing.The only Poly cousins we made contact with are the Tongans&Samoans.

    Niin pako jaje(Shark tooth swords) in Marshallese warrior culture is one out of many arsenal we possess.Made(Spears) also have shark tooths furnished around their tip tied down by coconut fiber strings.
