Abstract: It was confirmed, from the archaeological viewpoint and by examining the myths and folklores, that a considerably advanced stage of Polynesian farming system was the base of the culture on the Hawaiian Islands located on the margin of the cultural region of root crop cultivation. And the development of the labor-intensive paddy field farming and the intensive dryland cultivation system of mainly taro led to the rapid increase of population and the establishment of social classes, and produced the political systems with chieftainship. As for the agricultural methods, the common characteristics with those in various parts of Oceania were pointed out. It is a proof that the Hawaiians are the rightful successors of the root crop fanning with paddy field systems. But the operations of sugarcane plantations by the Caucasians and the exploitation of land and water by Asian immigrants by introducing the rice farming gave a fatal damage to the cultivation of taro. But it is important that there are any number of cultivated species still somehow maintained, and the diversity of cultivation patterns is kept to some extent The above is discussed in the paper, and it is pointed out that more attention should be given to the trend of reevaluation of the taro cultivation and the cultures based on it, in relation to the recent movement of restoration of the Hawaiian culture.
