At first, the first tiki, Rapa Nui's Moai, seemed limited to that slab of stone in the Pacific. However, now they seem to migrated as did the early Tahitians. I'm wondering if we can list them all?

1. Polynesian Cultural Center, Oahu's North Shorte
2. Smith's Family Luau Garden, Kauai's Coconut Coast
3. Sunset Park, Las Vegas, Nevada
4. Hanalei Hotel, San Diego, California
5. Tonga Hut, North Hollywood, California
6. CP Studio, Hollywood, California
7. Fry's, Manhattan Beach, California
8. Natural History Museum, Los Angeles, California
9. National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution , Washington D.C.
10.The Hut, Tucson, Arizona

The moai outside of the Los Angeles Natural History Museum has been sent to the American Museum of Natural History, New York, according to a NHMLA staffer.

this was the D.C. moai with topknot before the museum deleted the pacific cultures exhibit, and moved mr. moai outside the restrooms.



also please note that someone local to the dc area has sculpted a scale concrete version of this very moai (in my opinion) and sells it locally.
