Tokelauan (Gagana Tokelau)

Tokelauan is a Polynesian language spoken in Tokelau and New Zealand. Tokelau is a territory of New Zealand to the north of Samoa and east of Tuvalu consisting of three coral atolls: Atafu, Fakaofo and Nukunonu. There are about 1,600 Tokelauan speakers in Tokelau, and about 3,000 speakers in New Zealand. There are also some Tokelau speakers in the Swains Islands near American Samoa.

Tokelauan is mainly as an oral language and is rarely written. There is, however, a Tokelauan translation of the New Testament.

Tokelauan and Tuvaluan and more or less mutually intelligible, and Tokelauan is also closely related to Samoan and the Niuafo'ou language of Tonga.
