KiribatiInformation about the Kiribati
The name of the people is Gilbertese (or I-Kiribati, in Gilbertese). While English is the constitution's and law's language, kiribati or Gilbertese, the native Micronesian language, is widely spoken. Note that in Gilbertese there is no letter 's', the sound is represented by 'ti'. That is why Kiritimati Island is known in English as Christmas Island (not to be confused with the Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean, which is administered by Australia). Christianity is the major religion in the country, although mixed with many practices of the indigenous beliefs. There are also some Bahá'ís.
