Futunan or Futunian is the Polynesian language spoken on Futuna (and Alofi). The term East-Futunan is also used to distinguish it from the related West-Futunan (Futuna-Aniwan) spoken on the outlier islands of Futuna and Aniwa in Vanuatu.

According to Ethnologue, Fakafutuna is spoken by 3,600 on Futuna, as well as some of the 3,000 migrant workers in New Caledonia.
