Mangareva, also known as the Mangarevan language, is a Polynesian language spoken in the Gambier Islands of French Polynesia by about 1600 people on the islands of Gambier and Mangareva. Speakers also have some bilingualism in Tahitian, in which there is a 50-68% lexical similarity. It is a member of the Marquesic subgroup, and as such is closely related to Hawaiian and to the languages of the Marquesas Islands.
