Araki

Araki is a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken in Araki island south of Espiritu Santo island in Vanuatu by about 8 people. The rest of Araki's population understand the language and speak it to a limited extent. There is a language shift going on towards Tangoa, and Araki speakers also speak Bislama.

Before, Araki was situated over there, in (front of) Hog Harbour. One day there was a big feast in Araki, so they say. The people from Santo went there to dance. As they were dancing, those who were on the mainland (Santo) could hear their voices.
