Where is Polynesia?

How were the “many islands” settled?

Migration is ‘an elaborate, usually slow-moving waltz involving two partners – the atmosphere and the ocean’. (Brian Fagan)

Paul Gauguin - Landscape from Tahiti, 1893

Bilingual ~

our oral language...

The Norf’k language is recognised by academic linguists as a distinct and unique language.

When the Pitcairners arrived on Norfolk Island in 1856 they were bilingual in both Pitkern and English, with Pitkern dominant in many families.

The sound of home...

Acoustic ecology on Norfolk Island

…the  music of birdsong, the echo of calls, the power of the ocean, the nourishing cleansing sound of raindrops on a tin roof, resounding waves lapping, the totality of the forest atmosphere…

Listen … and listen again…

Let the sound carry you – to stimulate childhood memories and senses.
