Rotuma consists of the island of Rotuma and its nearby islets and is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, about 500 kilometres north of Fiji. Although Rotuma is its own nation, it is currently administered by Fiji as a dependency. Rotuman people are a separate ethnic group with their own distinct language, culture, and identity.
The Rotuman language is listed on the UNESCO list of endangered languages and New Zealand’s Rotuman community works hard to preserve and promote their mother tongue.
