There are many theories that attempt to explain how Native Hawaiians came to the islands and when this occurred. One of the common origin theories suggests that Polynesians first arrived in Hawaii in the 3rd century BCE from the Marquesas region and were then followed by Tahitians in the 14th century. Tahitians are said to have conquered the earlier Polynesians who had arrived in the islands. Today, a total of 527,000 people identify as Native Hawaiians. Roughly 156,000 of those people identify as only Native Hawaiian, while around 371,000 identify as Native Hawaiian and one or more other races of Pacific Islanders.
