...with no concern as to authenticity.. . . .



I think this cuts to the crux of it, for many of us. The very "exotic" essence that drew each of us into Tiki is its sense of being from another time & place, perhaps even from a more authentic way of life than what our own culture provides us. But rediscovery and origination are completely separate considerations, and no matter how shallow our introduction to tiki may have been (culturally or individually), it shouldn't occlude the more authentic from our common acceptance of what is desirable.
