it costs money to get tested.  I had donations to the project though too.  Some who get tested (like myself) did it because of genetic genealogy.  Others, not sure, maybe just curious.  And then my mother was adopted, so this was a way to help get over brick walls.

NG people can transfer over to FTDNA where I got tested.

Cassanda (who wrote that Natl Geographic article) is in my DNA project on FTDNA.

As for that Hawaiian encyclopedia article, they didn't even name the article, but mentioned the author - Rebecca Cann.  Based on what they wrote, mentioning 3 sub-groups, I'm wondering if they did a full mitochondrial sequencing test.  I'm of B4a1a1a3, and I know of B4a1a1a, and one person I know is B4a1a1a2.  And one Maori woman I know has the actual Polynesian motif - B4a1a1, so that's 4 that are common.

The University of Otago has a link to the various haplogroups throughout the south Pacific and mentioned specific groups that have them.
