Abstract: The recent dispersal of Pacific Islanders from their home islands poses long-term
problems for maintaining a continuing sense of community. One possible solution
is the World Wide Web, where virtual communities can be established to
help perpetuate a common cultural heritage. This paper describes a website for
the global Rotuman community that includes a number of features designed to
serve this purpose.
