    • Language: Nukuoro (nkr)
    • Dates: 2016-
    • Historical information: Nukuoro is an endangered Polynesian language spoken on Nukuoro Atoll, a low-lying island chain approximately 480 kilometers southwest of the state capital of Pohnpei, Micronesia. There are an estimated 1,200 speakers of Nukuoro worldwide, primarily on Nukuoro Atoll, Pohnpei, Guam, and in the United States. While language use is fairly robust on Nukuoro Atoll, diaspora communities are facing increased influence from regionally dominant languages like Pohnpeian and English; many Nukuoro community members under 30 feel more comfortable speaking other languages or do not identify as Nukuoro speakers at all. As rising sea levels threaten the sustainability of life on the atoll, diaspora communities will continue to grow, putting greater pressure of majority languages on the Nukuoro-speaking community.
