Niuean is a Polynesian language spoken in Niue, the
Cook Islands, Tonga and New Zealand by about 7,000 people.
In 2011 there were about 1,300 Niue speakers on Niue, an
island in the south Pacific west of Fiji and south of Samoa.
Most other Niuean speakers live in New Zealand [source].
Niuean is closely related to Tongan, and more distantly
related to Maori, Samoan, and Hawaiian.
Niuean was first write by Christian missionaries in the mid 19th
century using a spelling system influenced by Samoan. A Niuean
translation of the Bible was published in 1904, and there is also
a Niuean dictionary and grammar.
