Centerboards, fore-and-aft rigged sails in Southeast Asia and Indo-Pacific (Brazil, Peru), South American metal techniques and pottery of Asian influence, South American writing with at least two or three signs identical in form and meaning with early Chinese forms, the game of pachisi, sweet potatoes, hibiscus (hibiscus rosasinensis; considered to be an Asiatic plant is biologically adapted to the activities of American hummingbirds and not Asiatic bird pollinators), and an "Andean element" in the flora of Hawaii (including argemone, an American poppy) suggest Hawaii as a staging point for peoples maintaining a trans-Pacific contact between Asia and the northwest coast of South America.
