Nukuoro Project

Nukuoro (pop. 860) is one of the two Polynesian languages in Micronesia.

Bible Translation into the Nukuoro language

Bible translation has been going on for a long time as an initiative of the Nukuoro people themselves. Their New Testament was published in 1986 by the Bible Society of Micronesia. Currently a team under the leadership of Betty Amon is doing a review of the NT and completing the translation of the OT. Betty and her team are receiving consultant help from Isles of the Sea consultant Paulus Kieviet. It is expected that the Nukuoro Bible will be completed in a couple of years.
