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.
