The Tokelau language originated from a territory of New Zealand which is located near the Samoan Islands. The island nation is actually made up of three different tropical atolls which have a total of 4 square miles in area. The country of Tokelau has a very big distinction as far as its comes to green and renewable energy in the world. This is the first and only country in the entire world that is powered 100 percent by solar power.

This power is able to serve the 1,500 residents that live in Tokelau full time during the year. The country had started instialling photovoltaic energy cells all throughout the country beginning in 2012. The country is served by three different power stations that in turn deliver solar power to the residents. The language is held sacred in the country and there are huge efforts by natives to makes sure that records and kept about the history of the language.
