I am an exstudent of Niue High School in1988-1990, thats when students from Tokelau still were send to Niue for there secondary education.I was there when Hon. Frank Lui was an MP from Alofi North.I am very happy to find out that he is still serving the island in a very outstanding performance as he used to be. Well done ma olu!Monuina e haau a gahua. I am very proud of you. God Bless You Always…. Koe kia!!
Would like to know more about this project
I would like to assist by providing hosting for translation of the OLPC XO laptop user interface into Niuean. Please contact me so I can properly set up the language on our server. All I need are the number fo plural forms and a description of when they are used.
Actually, that OLPC project was officially ended last week by the Niue Education Department. However, I’m now in the process of negotiating with the Agency that delivered the OLPC project to Niue with the hopes of reviving the project but under a business type model that I think our company can provide services to make sure it is sustainable. The main reason from the Education Department for ending the project is that the pilot phase stopped and they’re finding it hard to continue the expensive satellite connection.
Here is the news release http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=64467
But I would be happy to discuss more about this possibility as I actually thought of translating ALL of the OLPC programmes and perhaps creating more all in Vagahau Niue (Niue Language). This would make it trully and universal effort.
Thank you for contacting and I look forward to ongoing dialogue.
This is a great initiative, I wish them great success.
Congratulations to Hon Frank Lui. I was a classmate of Frank’s in primary school in Lower Hutt. We had dreams, but they never stretched this far!
Awesum input and knowledge has helped me alot as i am just doing an essay on Pule and is very inspiring and amazed how he has done so well so carry on the good work
Wooooooowww!!! thanx 4 the meaning of ‘NIUE’… i was wondering if you know any niuean food that was sold at polyfest 2012.
Hi I have tried to email firstname.lastname@example.org but it is bouncing back. We are an organic wholefood store in the South Island NZ and are interested in stocking this vanilla. Can you get smeone to email me about this!??

Hi there, just came across your link.
Thanks for your kind words. Our family are humbled by all the tributes received for our beloved Sale. We will miss him dearly but he will live on in Arizona.
(sister of Charles Sale Jessop)
Sorry too to hear about Sale’s untimely death. He was of course the designer of the beautiful cover page of the Niue Dictionary, Vangahau Niue. Our condolences go to his family. The Sperlich family.
I am very very sorry to hear of Sale’s death. I met Sale when he was a teacher in training. He did a teaching experience with me and my classes at Pukekohe High School. Even then he showed great compassion and ability as a teacher. I know he made a real difference to many people as an artist and a teacher.
My family and i send our love and best wishes to his family.
Would be very nice if Niue can have faster Broadband speeds that way people there will be able to use Skype without any problems…latency problems…
Niue connects to the world via a satellite. The time it takes for the signal to go from earth to the satellite to earth again creates the latency (delay) which makes it difficult to use Skype. With developments in technology perhaps one day we will realise the speeds that others around the world are enjoying now.
Thank for sharing and letting know about your fascinating culture, have visited Noumea and one day will visit your beautiful land. Would actually love to live there.
I grow vanilla on the big island of Hawaii and have been thinking of moving to the south pacific to set up business there. I grow 100% organic vanilla and Niue is attractive to me for this reason. I am also a farmer and very fond of coconuts which attracts me to a place named for them.
What are your immigration requirements for a US citizen? I am thinking of changing my citizenship and Niue seems like a good place to me.
Hi there how do we purchase Niuean Noni here in NZ?
You could try a Google search. Here’s one supplier http://www.nonihealth.co.nz/
