    interesting. and though his work is pooh-poohed by the elite of academia, Thor Heyerdahl wrote a book called Aku Aku, in which he investigated the Moai. He asked actual Rapa Nui residents about how they were moved, and the indigenous people told him they walked the moai. And they demonstrated the walking. I see, in this article, yet another instance when the evidence of indigenous citizens is ignored while outsiders duel over who is the better theorist.
