Group Description

Pitcairn Islands sometimes called the the most isolated islands in the world, The Islands are a group of five, of which only Pitcairn Island is inhabited. Archaeologists assume that Polynesians lived on Pitcairn as late as the 15th century, the island were uninhabited when it was discovered by Spanish explorer Pedro Fernandez de Quiros. It was rediscovered by the British in 1767, and named after the crew member that first spotted the island. In 1790, the mutineers of Bounty and their Tahitian companions settled on the island and set fire to the Bounty. The wreck of Bounty is still visible underwater in Bounty Bay. Most of the resident Pitcairn Islanders are still descendants of the Bounty mutineers. An 18th century dialect of the English language is spoken along with the Tahitian language, the two together forming a creole language known as Pitcairnese.
