Ko Le Gā Tama Sau — in Futunan.

Futunan, is a Polynesian language spoken in the territory of Wallis and Futuna in the Pacific Ocean. It’s closely related to the Wallisian language (Fakauvea), both of which are part of the wider Austronesian language family. Futunan has two main varieties: East Futunan (Fakatutuna), spoken on the island of Futuna, and West Futunan (Fakaleiti), spoken on the neighboring island of Alofi. These two varieties are mutually intelligible but exhibit some phonological and lexical differences.

Futunan belongs to the Polynesian subgroup of the Austronesian language family, like many other languages in the Pacific Islands. Polynesian languages share linguistic and cultural traits and are spread across a wide area of the Pacific. The language is closely related to other Western Polynesian languages, Fagauvea, Wallisian, Tongan, Samoan, Tokelau, and Niuafo’ou.

In 1987, Fakafutuna was spoken by 3,600 on Futuna, as well as by some of the 3,000 migrant workers in New Caledonia. This language is a member of the diminishing set of native Pacific languages, it is classified as endangered.
