A Niuean broadcaster says all Niueans shoulder the responsibility to ensure Niuean language and culture survive.

New Zealand is celebrating Niuean Language Week focusing on the Heart of Niue People or 'Ko e Vagahau Niue ko e Atefua he Tagata Niue' .

Only 7 and a half percent of Niueans born in New Zealand speak Vagahau Niue, something which concerns the CEO for the Pacific Media Network Patrick Lino.

He spoke to Sara Vui-Talitu.
