Niue is an elevated coral atoll with fringing coral reefs encircling steep limestone cliffs. It lies 2400 km northeast of New Zealand between Tonga, Sāmoa, and the Cook Islands.

Our collections represent stories of Niue and its people. Today Niuean communities maintain connections to their homeland and their language, customs, and culture in a range of new contexts.

Explore some of our Niuean stories about our communities and collections from kahoa hihi to katoua, tiputa to titi, the coral atoll to coconut, and more.
