Talofa lava! Malo e lelei! 'Ia ora na! Aloha! Kia ora! This is the electronic home of the Polynesian Languages and Literature Group - POLLI. We are a group of people sharing an interest in, and love for, Polynesian languages, spoken in Polynesia, a large group of islands and archipelagoes in the South Pacific. Our web network - the POLLInet - includes texts in Polynesian languages, general information about these languages, a mailing list and more. Explore POLLInet from our table of contents below. Or you can navigate from the quick reference bar to the left.
