    Cook Islands Maori maybe.

  3. Christopher Miller says:

    Maori, at least from the bilabial fricatives including in what sounds like it would be spelled whenua (or perhaps whanua) in Maori (“land”).

  4. Simon says:

    The answer is Taihitian (te reo tahiti/te reo Māʼohi), a Polynesian language spoken mainly in French Polynesia.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
