'Independent of the plausibility or implausibility of the pre-Columbian arrival of Polynesians to the South American Pacific coast, there still would remain the need to explain how these migrants crossed the Andes and ended up in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

‘unlikely to be seriously entertained’ ping.
Thor Heyderdahl always maintained the opposite view... that early south americans traveled to Polynesia. That scenario may also fit the observed data.
No less plausible than the idiotic Bering Strait migration theory.
