The author, Caroline Arnold, provides accurate details as to why the native population on Rapa Nui declined. Page 42 discusses the numerous attempts to capture natives as slaves. "The worst slave raid occurred in 1862, when more than a thousand Eastern Islanders, including the ariki henua and all of the maori, or learned men, were kidnapped and transported to guano mines in Peru."
