Polynesian music is more about the rhythym and tone (ukelelies), I think. From memory, I think the chords are just bar chords played staccato, similar to reggae. But thats just what I remember about that stereotypical hawaiian music.

Or are you talking about pacific island tribal music?
Because I think its similar to australian aboriginal music, humming and rhythym sticks.
