Mangareva (or Mangarevan) is a Polynesian language spoken in the Gambier Islands of French Polynesia by about 600 people on the islands of Gambier and Mangareva. Speakers also have some bilingualism in Tahitian, in which there is a 60% lexical similarity, and usually with French as well. It is a member of the Marquesic subgroup, and as such is closely related to Hawaiian and to the languages of the Marquesas Islands.
