Early settlement (controversy around existance of this era)
Between the years 400 and 1200 a.c humans came to Easter Island but scientists say that it probably didn't happen. This is when the Gigant moai statues are theorized to have been built.
Ahu moai fhase
From 1200 to 1680 (when the Huri Moai Fhase started) some conflicts due to succesion. Some recent studies reveal that this was truly when the island was colonized by the Polynesians.
Tagata Manu (bird-man)
This was also the time when the Tangata manu (bird-man) tradition started. This is a traditional competition that consists of a race to get the first egg layed by a Sooty Tern in the islet of Motu Nui (Called big island due to being the biggest islet south of Rapa Nui), swim back to Rapa Nui and clim the cliff of Rano Kau to reach the now abandoned settlement of Orango. Make Make (a polynesian deity) is the character this cult was dedicated to.
Huri Moai Fhase
From 1680 to when Netherlandsball landed.
Development of the Rapa-Nui Culture
According to oral tradition, the Rapa Nui people would have arrived from a "mythical" island called Hiva, being guided by Hotu Matu'a, their first ariki or king, around the year 1200 after the birth of Christ. According to archeological investigations the island of Hiva may be the island of Rapa Iti.
Decadence and foreign intervention
Between 1600 and 1700 Rapa Nui suffered mayor overpopulation. The natives started cutting more and more trees until the island lost all of them.
In the 1750's the population stabilized and the Tangata manu (bird-man) tradition changed to another type of bird, a Spectacled tern.
In 1722 a Netherlandsball explorer reached the island, made a study of his topograpfy and studied the traditions of the island. This was the first time the Moai statues were mentioned by a westerner. He also wrote that some gigant men populated the island at the time.
In 1770 a second expetition went to the island, but this one was made by Spanish Empireball, lead by the captain Felipe González de Ahedo Later the island was explored by other europeans like James Cook (Ukball) and Jean-François de La Pérouse (Franceball). The island finally became a small station to reload food supplies in long journeys between south America and Oceania.
Slavery and diseases
Many slaves were brought to the island from Callao (Central Peru). Then in 1862 a slaverist from Spainball came to the island, killed 362 natives, burned entire villages and families inside of their houses and captured the leader of the entire Rapa Nui tribe, which at that moment was only 6 years old.
A tuberculosis outbreak reduced the population down to less than 400 people and of those only 110 would remain in 1877, with a lot going to Taihitiball with the catholic missioners that tried converting the island.
Annexation by Chile
In 1888 Chileballannexed Rapa Nu'i under suspicious circustances. A officer of the Chileball navy negotiated with the king of the Rapa Nui tribe together with some local tribal leaders. The treaty had two versions: a Spanish one and a Rapa Nu'ian (mixed with Taihitian) one. In the Spanish text the local tribal leaders kindly cede the sovereignty of the island to Chileball while the in the other version Chile accepted to become "a friend of the island".
The king and the tribal leaders didn't know how to sign so they signed with a "x". During the ceremony, the king Tekena handed to the general of the Chilean navy present in the act. To him, this gesture had more value that the actual treaty, while the general of the Chilean navy interrelated it completely differently.
In 1951 the official of Chilean Armed Forces finally made a commercial flight between contitental chile and the island. In 1965 the first airport of the island was opened to the public and the island was now reachable more easily. In 1966 the schools, which had been only teaching the Spanish (Chilean dialect) lenguage, started teaching the Rapa Nu'i lenguage, which stopped it from dying. In the end of the 20th century the island started to govern itself. And in 2007 the chilean constitution was changed to include a new law that was aproved which would give the island autonomy as it would become a "special autonomy".

How to draw
seems a psycopathic killer:
- Draw the basic circle shape
- Draw inside it a red Rapa Nui
- Draw the eyes and you're finished.
