Niue Language Week

Fakaalofa lahi atu Did you know that his week is Niue language week? To celebrate, our Niuean group created a beautiful dance and a Niuean haka!  'Ko e Vagahau Niue ko e Atefau he Tangata Niue' is the message for the Niue language week. It means, 'The Niue Language is the Heart of Niue people'. Some students from the group said a little speech. That's the only time I've ever heard Niuean language and it's beautiful. Fun Fact; there are more Niueans living in New Zealand than Niue!!

It's only been roughly a week for the group to practice. Still they were fantastic! The girls did a cultural dance. A Niuean haka was performed by the boys. They sounded like bold warriors! While I was watching, I realized that the Niuean culture is very special to all these students. I just cannot wait for the 2018 Niuean language week.
