Other indirect confirmation of this hypothesis received on Easter Island recently F. Mazerom from the mouth of the elderly. In the version of the legend, recorded by F. Mazerom: "The chief said that his land is slowly sinking into the sea. He called his servants, men, women, children and the elderly, and put them on the two large boats. When they reached the horizon, the leader saw that the whole land, except for a small part of it, called the Maori, went under the water. " According to F. Mazera content of this legend is not in doubt: "The disaster did occur, and it is logical to assume that the said part of the land was on a huge island, which is to the north-west of Easter was connected with the islands of the Tuamotu Archipelago."
