Welcome to the website of the Tahitian language program at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa in Honolulu, Hawai`i.  This site is a work in progress. You’ll find many undefined hyperlinks and whole sections that don’t exist yet. Please bare with us.

Please use the tabs above to navigate.

This site has three main purposes:

  1. To provide an introduction and overview of the Tahitian program at the University of Hawai`i.
  2. To provide an English-language resource for both academics and lay people interested in the Tahitian language.
  3. To create, over time, a permanent online bilingual English-Tahitian dictionary.
