There are accounts from European voyagers in the Pacific that recall finding many red heads among the people there. They also recount that these people were more vulnerable to European disease as compared to the dark haired population and their numbers steadily declined over the centuries until they mostly disappeared. New Zealand still has its indigenous red-haired population. Genetically they are descendents of an ancient migration of Caucasians and a more recent but still ancient migration of Taiwanese.
