Anuta Island Trivia

Less than 300 people inhabit this island that is the smallest one among the all inhabited Polynesian islands. Even though Christianity has been established in the island, the ancient traditions still have a major impact on the life of the Annutans. Only several scientists visit them from time to time. Very few of the islanders leave the island to make some money. The rest of them live in a close community with specific social habits and rules.
