An Introduction to Polynesian Anthropology
The study of native music is a specialist's project. The records made during Bishop Museum expeditions were with the type of recording machines procurable at that time. However, some studies have been made from them and the results published by the Museum. The Board of Maori Ethnological Research has made a large number of records in New Zealand. The student of music with an up-to-date recording machine would find good fields of work in the Cook Islands, New Zealand, Samoa, and Tonga.
